Even Woolmer nods

...approval of Indian coach Greg Chappell, that is.
In an unrelated post, I notice that one response to my query about starting a US cricket blog runs thus:
Prem...just stay away from US Cricket
Goto http://www.uscricket.com/idealbb And you can see all the ugliness. There are not too many +ves in US cricket. Don't waste your time.

Appreciate the heads up, friend, and I'll go check the site out, once my world returns to normal Sunday.
But sight unseen, maybe this is the best possible reason to start something? There's prolly politics and a whole heap of ugliness but dig down deep, and it's a bunch of us Indians -- okay, make that South Asians -- trying, in none too fertile soil, to keep our passion alive for a game we grew up with.
And maybe if we get together and start a platform, it could well be an antidote to some of the poison, who knows? What the heck, let's give it a start, and see where it goes -- will try and put together a 'concept note' (gives me something to do while I am 'conference-ing') and throw it up here Monday, let's see what happens.

  • Prem,
    Thanks for keeping us updated on the cricket related activities in between your actual work. One thing that you could take advantage of is called
    Audio Blog. In this, you call a number from your phone, blog your message and submit it. This will get automatically post it to your Blog and people can then "listen" to it. I presume, everyone has some sort of media player on their comps ... it will save you a lot of time and effort.

    Something to think about, eh ?

    Cheers,
    Thyaga
