It's all hapenning!

In the times of recession, the game of cricket continues to provide Unadulterated Joy!
While IPL continues to hog the headlines with mind boggling figures that the Indian corporates and Bollywood biggies shell out to buy out known and unknown cricket talent worldwide, the game itself has been superbly keeping the fans rivetted!

Dhoni & Co have proved all pessimistic naysayers (like me) wrong and went ahead to create history in Sri Lanka by beating the Lankans on all fronts and extending the winning streak to 9 matches in a row already! Indian fans have never had it so good for so long!
Lage Raho Dhonibhai! Nothing succeeds like success! And Dhoni has led from the front with some super support from his team!

The Windies, meanwhile, have completely and ruthelessly demolished Englishmen in thesecond innings with some amazing bowling figures and went one up in the test series! That is test cricket at its best!

The South Africa have toppled the Australians by some amazing cricket down under and the Kiwis continue their good work by leading the aussies 2-0 already! Smith and Co, take a bow!

Ponting asked to rest, Sachin not firing (fans crying loud against LBW decisions), Mortaza picked up at super price by SRK, Jerome Taylor and Duminy firing all cylinders, Pieterson and Flintoff getting richer than Dhoni, Gambhir finally arriving on the world scene, Zaheer back to his best, Jayasuriya continuing to dazzle the world, Mendis flopping, its all happenning here in the world of cricket!

Bring it on, I say!
