I don’t have hope for India, the bowling is weak, and getting 20 Australian wickets would be “horse horn” and mostly the batting would fail.

Above is from my blog that wrote a week or so ago, and did not have time to publish it. I wish I had.

Like every other Australian tour, Indian team disappoints its fans. Team think tank suffers from short term memory loss. The fate is so cruel; Dinesh Karthik with half a dozen half centuries in 2007 and few of them matching saving innings is now made to carry water. He failed during the home serious played a “cow dung” surface and was replaced by a star player who scored a lot runs on the same surface. I agree Karthik fell cheaply on 4 occasions during Pakistan series but when the selectors picked a player based on the dreaded YNF [You never know factor] I think Karthik and Jaffer ‘s opening pair should be given some more time for revival. At the end of the day, pay load was transferred to Dravid who did nothing other than to bring India down. Dravid has to cut his “serving his team” crap and demand his favorite batting position. He cannot and should not open. It only happens in India cricket team, the team batting line up tinkered to accommodate Yuvraj Singh, his recent form in other “forms” made people forget his previous test cricketing appearances. His attitude on the field is always questionable and it was evident during the first Test. Other than Ganguly, VVS and of course Tendulkar no batsmen had clue or the caliber to negotiate the accurate Aussie attack. Tendulkar made it look so easy but failed to carry the innings. But it is 2007, moving on to 2008, Team India is still dependent on the so called seniors and story of young blood & first blood is yet a local phenomenon.

I was listening to Tamil songs on various FM stations [AHHA FM, Oli fm etc], I happened to bump into song, later found it was from a movie called “kAdalil vizunthen” Music by Vijay Anthony. I have seen him on Sun TV a lot on music shows and honestly, Vijay Anthony sounded a promising musician. But he disappoints and bluntly “copies” Rihana's Unfaithful – "bar by bar" in a song titled “Unakkena nAn”. [From kAdalil vizunthen]. The reason I remember Rihana’s song is for its un-tuned Tablas, the beat pattern would sound odd from the main melody. Every aspect of this track has been copied including the sound model, instrumentation and the melody. I did not check the lyrics. Hope it is original.

I hope Vijay Anthony has given proper credits to the original song writer and composer; If not "You too Vijay?"
