Before we start …

Nirmal Shekar writes in The Hindu:

Let us resolve that we will never again say that Team India carries the hopes of a billion people and the prayers of that many are with Rahul Dravid’s men. The truth — if anybody still cares for it in this age of ephemera, an age of boosterism and saturation coverage of popular sport in the media — is that a vast majority of that billion has rather more mundane everyday concerns. Their hopes and dreams are not hooked to the fortunes of the men in blue.

Unless something unexpected happens, we can be assured that cricket would be the hottest topic of discussion in our media for the next few weeks. Before it gets to full swing, Nirmal’s article is well worth a read.
