Phew!

It's that kind of day -- sorry, blog posts will have to wait till about 6 pm my time. Been so rushed, haven't even managed to check the county scores, but from mails downloading, I notice you guys are talking about SG's latest knock. I notice, too, a question -- questions -- about whether SG should be captain, should be in the team, et al.
It's one I've meant to address -- at least, give my personal take on. Will, too, but a rushed post is no way to do it, and till this conference ends Sunday, rushed posts are all I will be able to find time for. So, Monday first thing, will take this up.
Meantime, a quick link to something that caught my eye a while back, but didn't have time to throw up till now: Javed Miandad's son will marry Dawood Ibrahim's daughter.
So. Cool.
This is the guy our investigators hold responsible for the Bombay bomb blasts; the guy we have a warrant out on; heck, the guy Interpol has a warrant out on. He lives in perfect security and comfort in Pakistan (while President Musharraf insists he does not know where the man is -- the last time he said that, my colleague Sheela Bhatt called Dawood in Pakistan, then published the interview, together with his address and telephone number there); he operates from Dubai; he is free from any fear of being brought to justice.
Meanwhile, any idea what the lives of those who survived the blasts -- but whose loved ones lost limbs, and lives, in it -- has been like?

  • I dont think the current knock of Saurav is something to be talked or even considered...Agreed last match he was awesome but this one where 1200 runs are scored in 3 days for just 10 wickets...ha..ha...

  • It is shocking to read miandad's son marrying dawood's daughter. I wonder if the indian authorities are serious about catching dawood. I still remember watching on TV, dawood witnessing ind-pak matches in sharjah in the early nineties. I am pretty sure that miandad would have played a part in match fixing given that dawood did. Also read that dawood invested big bucks in miandad's inlaw's business.. Don't allow miandad to step on indian territory again, all former and current players should boycott miandad, don't allow miandad write columns for any indian papers/magazines/websites..
    Imagine what america would say if bush's daugher married osama's son ??

  • Javed Miandad is a third rate character. Thank you for highlighting this important information.
