What's the best thing about the cricket win in Australia?
That the team paid zero attention to the crybabies.
I mean the Australian kind who, while backing up "obnoxious weed", said that this Indian team were making an issue of various incidents because "they are losing every game they are playing."
Hmm. Didn't exactly lose the last two games, now did they?
I also mean the Indian kind who set blogs and chat sites and newspaper column feet alight some weeks ago, saying this Indian team should pull out of the tour, that our national honour and pride was at stake.
I mean, I'm so glad that pullout did not happen. For if it had, the crybabies would have had a singular achievement to their weak-kneed credit: making the team look like crybabies too. Look like themselves, in fact. No pride there.
Instead, the team just played and won. After the Sydney mess, the Test team went out and won the Perth Test. After "obnoxious weed", the ODI team went out and won a title, won two games they never even looked like losing.
There's pride and honour for you, in the only way they come in sports: play hard and win. Never mind the crybabies.
