April 21, 2005



Is the BCCI sleeping?
'Every time the BCCI delays a decision, Indian cricket is hurt,' says Ashish Magotra.



April 15, 2005



Afridi awesome
The dashing batsman's single-minded aggression earned Pakistan its easiest of victories in the fifth ODI against India.

The tale of two talents
Failure spurs Younis Khan and success spurns Sourav Ganguly, says Ashish Magotra.

Sehwag, the lone warrior?
Once the dashing batsman is out the Indian team's run-rate witnesses an instant drop.

Broad's narrow view
The reporting of Bajji is, to say the least, worrisome. Ridiculous, would be an equally valid adjective.

Bring back the flag
The next time we accuse cricketers of not taking pride in representing the country; think of how we treat the ones who do.

Our cricketers need to do more
Is the donation of one day's match fee and the BCCI's Rs 1 crore enough?

Keeping the ace Indian leg spinner out of one-day cricket could enable him achieve his goal of 500 Test wickets.

November 10, 2004



India beaten by bad planning
The BCCI missed a trick by not making the Aussies play at the Eden Gardens, says Ashish Magotra.



October 29, 2004



A triumph of the will and intellect
Every Australian pulled his weight in the team and even when things looked bleak, as they did in Chennai, they persisted.



October 25, 2004



Where's the opening balance?
Why open with a middle order batsman when there are tried and tested openers available, says Ashish Magotra.



October 10, 2004



Allow teams the right to appeal
Ashish Magotra makes out a case for teams to appeal against an umpire's decision.



October 6, 2004



India's greatest bowler ever
Kumble's strength, says Ashish Magotra, has always been his ability to hang on when the going gets tough. Count him out at your own peril.



June 20, 2003



Cricket lives in the past
It's time we forget what happened and get going with the present and the present alone.



January 8, 2003



Inconsistent, but not incapable
Packed with batsman of the calibre of Lara, Hooper, Chanderpaul, Samuels and Sarwan, this batting line-up can take on the best in the world, says Ashish Magotra.
