reads: general, and very worthwhile.

I sometimes (often, actually) find myself not supporting anyone while watching a match (in any sport). Why I may be doing it is probably explained here, in a must read. I shan't quote from it.
We may not like them all, but we should enjoy them while we can.

and more on excellence here, where the magician is written on, again.

When the ball leaves his hand, time seems to slow down as if the moment demands relishing, the breath holds in the lungs as his deliveries hover, plummet, skid, dart, spit, turns, every over with enough disguise to impress a chameleon


PS- are they really pushing the man up to Number 4? Hmmm.. not sure how good an idea this is...

Too early for that I reckon. It could ruin him. Ricky Ponting will not hesitate in making the appropriate bowling change as soon as he comes to the wicket anyway.

agree totally. ponting will not have the problem of ODI restrictions- so the best bowlers will alsways be around. And if KP goes, Bell coming in next will be under even more pressure than he already is...

Yep...not a good idea :-) Atleast not good signs. So what happens if next match KP fails and Bell gets two 50s ? !!

Hey akr! The original link from where I was getting the feed for the Indian Oil Cup closed down and refunded money for the broadcast. So I bought the boradcast from Willow TV. So if your friend is willing to shell out about $80, then Willow TV it is.

But the quality is really good, streaming at about 600 kbps. Couldn't find your email on your blogger profile. So hopefully your friend should see this.

Check out this one comment from Prem Panicker's blog. One of these guys has bought the feed off SGStream.com. However I can't verify the authenticity of the site or the feed.

I apologize to everyone else for spamming this comments section with info other than the content of this post.
