Waste of time

A nation of 1 billion people, and they are represented by 11 actors turned cricketers at the World Cup of Cricket. Supposed to be the richest cricketing body and among the richest sporting bodies in the world, the BCCI is still inefficient in their functioning. The selection procedures, the domestic cricket circuit and the activities of the BCCI (primarily based towards monetary benefits) need to be reset and thought and structured all over again. Carrying the hope of 1 billion people is not an easy task, but failing to satisfy even 1 in that 1 billion, is not easy either. A well hyped up team, the expectations collapsed after the very first match. The supposedly great players in the team, could not get India 2 victories out of 3 matches. People will continue writing about Indian cricket and the great players which emerged, but these miserable performances always leave an indelible mark in one's mind. And these so called greats will always be remembered for letting the team and the country down. People are called 'great' when they perform for their country when others fail. After this, I think 'great' needs to be redefined after whats happening these days.
