Sad was the Indian Cricket team’s performance at the World Cup. After employing the costliest and a no nonsense coach, providing extraordinary facilities(when compared other sports in India), organizing camps, Exclusive Physios, Trainers, Sponsors right from the outfits to the training kits and 1 billion fans who were providing unconditional support(or shall I say pressure????), to see the batsmen follow suit back to the pavilion one by one is not the sight they can bestow.Any Indian Cricket Team’s fan has all the right to get pissed off with the team’s below par performance but few went wrong with the way they expressed. What we are proving to these cricketers by throwing stones on their houses. Won’t the family members be threatened.Is this our culture is/was/will be known for.Why didn’t we go and stone those non-performing politicians, collectors and tahsildars.Let me list out few things that we can do to show our disappointment.
1.Not going to the stadiums to watch any of the Indian Team’s matches unless they maintain consistency, or in TV.
2.Don’t buy any luxury goods (that includes carbonated drinks) marketed by these cricketers.
3.Last but not least, let’s make sure the above resolutions reach the cricketers and the companies who sponsor these people.
Instead of being furious and voilent, these will hit them than anything.
Shall we start a campaign for this?
