Alvida "Dada"

Yesterday was the day an Era ended in Indian cricket. After so much of ups, downs, yes and no..Dada retired from international cricket. Some events on the final day

1. Ganguly taking over as Indian captain in final overs.

2. Kumble coming to the podium and collecting the Border-Gavaskar trophy.

3. Champagne enjoyed by the team and

4. The victory lap of team.

Dhoni really a smart chap, in all this also he got applauds..indeed a smarty.

For me whenever I talk about Dada  I remember the Lords balcony with Dada swinging his t-shirt, Dada hitting sixes to each and every bowler coming to bowl, Dada leading team in a messed up situation and still winning it. Dada is a perfect example of a fighter who made ripples all around with his Pepsi As "Bhoole to nahin" and returned back to team with a bang. He was victimised by the dirty politics of Indian cricket controlled mainly by a bunch of politically influenced veterans 

His was a glory period and we all relished it.

Hoping to see Dada again in action in some new avatar soon...
