Ganguly returns as captain

Shirt that Ganguly took of in his infamous cel...
After last year's atrocious performance by the Kolkata Knight Riders, it was evident that large scale changes were going to be made. Not surprisingly, Ganguly will be back as the captain. Dave Whatmore has replaced Buchanan and Wasim Akram joins the Knight Riders as the Chief Mentor.

The announcement about Sourav's return to the captaincy was to be expected. He had been replaced by Brendon McCullum in this year's edition of the IPL but when you come back with a 3-10 win loss record, the captain's head is among the first to roll.

But more than the captain, the coach, John Buchanan was the target of much of the criticism and ridicule. In fact so atrocious were his decisions that I wonder how the Australian team of the 2000s managed to win with him as the coach. Whether Dave will be any different from Buchanan remains to be seen. Even Buchanan had a very impressive record before joining KKR...

Whatmore's support staff will include Delhi coach Vijay Dahiya as his deputy, Andrew Leipus as the physio Adrian le Roux as the team trainer.

All in all the changes seem sensible. Ganguly will get the chance to make yet another comeback and prove to his detractors that the qualities that made him one of India's best captains have not abandoned him. McCullum is a fantastic cricketer but his leadership abilities were always in question. The sacking of Buchanan was also absolutely necessary to restore some confidence in the ranks. But what is inexplicable is the appointment of Wasim Akram as the team mentor. I feel that with three over achievers (Ganguly, Whatmore and Akram) making decisions, it will lead to ego clashes and the nightmares of the last season may well return.

Sometimes these talent hunts are worth it

Go watch this:

What kind of a bias are we facing here? A bias against anybody older than 25? Or are we so used to judging products by their packaging that it has become a habit?


I saw the movie yesterday. Very very mediocre. Still have no clue what the hype was all about. While i didnt want to run out of the cinema hall at any point of time; this is definitely not a movie i would watch again.

Tom Cruise grew up wanting to kill Hitler.

That makes him about 70 years old. Hmm. 


Is this the first time that atheists have been mentioned in a non negative context by an American president? 

The "facts" according to CNN

FACT: "The temperature in Washington is 25 degrees Farenheit but it feels like 11 degrees."

Feelings =  facts?

P.S. Now 28 feels like 17. WTF?
