And so are the angry mobs of Muslims and Hindus in India, killing each other depending on who won.

Well, at least we won fair and square, and I wish that most Indians realize that its just a game, not something to be taken seriously, especially if Pak wins.

Cash registers ringing for Team India

Kajori Sen, Jaideep Bhandarkar

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 (New Delhi)

The BCCI may have initially opposed the idea of a 20-20 world cup but now that the team has won they have led the way in terms of showering money on the players.

The announcement from the BCCI was just the start of things to come, it's now raining gifts and money for Team India and why not.

The six members of the team who are with Air India, which includes MS Dhoni and Yuvraj Singh have also been given a great upgrade.

"There are six players out of the 11 of the world cup team. We will be not only honouring them but also be very happy to give them an additional promotion out of turn immediately," said Praful Patel, Civil Aviation Minister.

"Also give them additional travel benefits for them and their families. For the entire winning team, manager, coach, Air India is giving travel benefits," he added.

The team has already won Rs 2 crore in prize money for winning the tournament.

The BCCI has announced Rs 12 crore for the entire team, Rs 8 crore for winning the title and Rs 4 crore that they had already promised for the team reaching the final. There is also Rs 15 lakh for each of the members of the support staff of the team.

Yuvraj Singh gets a special windfall of Rs 1 crore from the board for his six pack special against England and BCCI vice president Lalit Modi has already promised the Punjab player a Porsche car.

Sahara the team sponsors have also opened the purse strings, they are giving a house worth Rs 25 lakh to each of the 15 members of the team.

Each of the state governments has also announces separate cash awards for the players, perhaps the most generous seems to be the Haryana government, which has announced Rs 21 lakh for Joginder Sharma, the last over hero against Australia and Pakistan.

Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda however insists on being very secretive, he says his gift for Dhoni will be a surprise, to be announced on the November 15 when the captain is felicitated with the Jharkhand Ratna award.

So the cash registers are ringing for Team India and there will surely be more to follow when new endorsements deals are signed.


GOOD NEWS FOR TEAM INDIA:)

Wednesday, September 5, 2007 (Chennai)
The latest proposal by Indian Hockey Federation chief KPS Gill prescribes a Rs 1000 bonus for every goal scored, but a fine of twice that amount for every one conceded.

Now that means the Indian team can actually end up losing money despite winning matches, especially high-scoring ones.

Quite expectedly, the IHF refuses to confirm or deny this, and what's equally unsurprising is the averse reaction of the players and coach.

If India-Sri Lanka preliminary round Asia Cup match had taken place before KPS Gill decided to bring in his new incentive scheme, India's 20-0 romp could have earned the side Rs 20,000 at a grand a goal.

So plenty of motivation to score more goals and not concede any, considering it's a Rs 2000 deduction for every goal let in.

But there's trouble in the ranks, with the team itself claiming it won't be taking this scheme very seriously.

"I don't think any father in the world will promise his boy to do well in his exams and say that if you do well in your exams and get a 75 percent I will give you a bike.

"And if he does not do well, will give him a cycle? Will he ever do that? I think this is all unnecessary controversy in the midst of a tournament. We are not bothered by whatever is being created by whomever. We are really focused to do well. I think whatever has been promised to us, we'll be getting, without any deductions," said Joaquim Carvalho, Indian Hockey Coach.

Controversial proposal

Gill apparently mooted his latest controversial proposal after the India-Lanka game, in order to motivate the team for the tough game against Korea.

Providentially, the move backfired on the day, thanks to the 3-2 result.

The team actually ended up in the red, with three thousand in earnings against four thousand in fines!

No wonder then, that ex-players are now up in arms against this policy.

"This is an absolutely disgraceful scheme. No thought has gone into this. Nor have the IHF officials bothered to clarify matters. This is an insult to the players. It's better not to pay them, than treat them like this," said Zafar Iqbal, Former Indian Captain.

For those familiar with Gill's 13-year-long stint so far, this isn't his first ad hock ruling.

He recalled Coach Cedric D'Souza during the 2002 World Cup, banned the media from team's practice sessions, and tried to suspend domestic hockey for three months in 2005.

This latest ruling is yet another example of how Indian Hockey is run on the whims and fancies of one single man.

THIS IS THE SITUATION OF OUR NATIONAL GAME

Pak fans take defeat in their stride

NDTV Correspondent

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 (Karachi)

While the Indians went delirious with joy over a magnificent win, a pall of gloom descended over Pakistani cities.

But Indo-Pak rivalry has undergone a huge change, no longer is the cricket ground equated to a battlefield, now the game of cricket is allowed to be that - a game - and good performances on both sides are well appreciated.

The streets of Karachi were deserted as Pakistan played India in the historic Twenty20 World Cup final in Johannesburg.

Fans glued to the television sets were expecting their team to come hard at the Indians. And Misbah ul-Haq did raise their hopes but Dhoni's devils finally sealed their fate.

"The players who came in the start of match should have played well. The captain also didn't play very well. Younis Khan didn't play well too. What could the rest of the players do?" asked a Karachi resident.

And so began the accusations and counter accusations so familiar after failure hits a cricket team in the sub continent.

There were some scattered reports of effigies of allegedly "failed" players being burnt. But the good news is that most fans are now treating the defeat as a lost match, not a lost battle.

"This time again we faced despair but we enjoyed the fight as Pakistan performed very well," said a Pakistan resident.

"Pakistan has played very well today, but one can't help it if there is hard luck. A match between Pakistan and India is always very sensational. God willing, Pakistan will try to improve in future. They have done well throughout the tournament," another Pakistani added.

Imran Khan has seen the worst era of the Indo-Pak rivalry and he is glad things have changed.

Notwithstanding the loss, the Pakistan team will reap rich rewards for reaching the finals of the tournament.

Perhaps they will also be consoled by Shahid Afridi keeping the trophy of the most valuable player of the tournament.

Pakistan reacts to defeat with anger

Press Trust of India

Tuesday, September 25, 2007 (Karachi)

Minutes after Shoaib Malik's team lost the Twenty20 World Cup final to India in Johannesburg, Pakistan's angry cricket lovers burnt effigies of Younis Khan and Shahid Afridi to vent their anger.

In yet another incident that revealed that people can be very unforgiving when it comes to conceding defeat against India, the incident occurred at the stadium where the Asian Football Confederation tournament is being played in Lahore these days.

In Karachi also, mobs in some places gathered to raise slogans against the Pakistani players particularly Afridi and Younis.

"What the hell! This is the second time we lost a match to India in the World Cup. Such a big match and such careless play from senior players like Younis and Afridi. It is so disappointing to lose like this to India," Kamil Butt said as his friends engaged in animated discussion on the final at a fast food restaurant.

Given the level of interest in the final, five-star hotels, fast food chains and small restaurants on Monday had all set up television screens and arranged special Iftaar menus to attract crowds as the people also broke fast during the match itself

Welcome party: T20 Champs on victory parade

NDTV Correspondent

Wednesday, September 26, 2007 (Mumbai)

With the world at their feet, the Men in Blue returned home to a heroes' welcome in Mumbai on Wednesday morning at the Chhatrapati Shivaji International Airport.

The Indian team, which won the Twenty20 Cricket World Cup in Johannesburg, was led out of the airport by captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni with the trophy in his hand.

BCCI President Sharad Pawar, Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, Deputy CM R R Patil and their Cabinet colleagues welcomed the champions along with hundreds of drum-beating supporters.

Heavy rains since Tuesday night failed to dampen the spirits of thousands of fans who queued up to catch a glimpse of their favourite players.

There was absolute euphoria as fans set off fireworks and adoringly backslapped the players showing their joy and gratitude for having done the nation proud. Even the jubilant Men in Blue joined the frenzy, breaking into impromptu jigs.

Music troupes were seen playing the traditional Maharashtrian music outside the arrival lounge of the airport while many others waited with flags and showered flowers on the team.

The team is being received in style with a 30 km long victory procession from the airport to the Wankhede Stadium.

The players will reach the stadium atop an open bus -- Vijay Rath -- where they will be felicitated. Large parts of Mumbai has come to a standstill as the victory bus is winding its way to the stadium.

In spite of the rains, the team members, notably Yuvraj Singh who hit six consecutive sixes against England in the tournament, were seen dancing to music being played on the roof of the bus.

Security has been tightened in and around the stadium, which will be thrown open to the public in the morning.

Chasing 158 in the final of the first ever Twenty20 World Cup, Pakistan was skittled out for 152 with three balls remaining.

Irfan Pathan was named Man of the Match for his outstanding bowling spell of 4-0-16-3, which brought India back into the game.

Not really!

It is the big money, sponsorship and the mugs of these cricketers invading the homes through ads has made them larger than life!

Cricket is no longer stylish (and maybe boring for some!). It has become some sort of a bastardised Baseball! Something like Podex (puddocks), which we played in school, apart from cricket.

Now,because of the big money from sponsorships, there is a huge spat in India over the control of national cricket!
