Success and failure are all part of life. People who understand and learn from failure can become more successful in their endeavours when they overcome the pain of failure.
I am a sports lover and a big fan of Indian cricket team. I love to watch them in action on the field. I too watch all the gesture, their body language and team communication.
I was inspired to write this blog post after watching the boys in action in the recent T20 international of the ongoing series with the Kiwis.
Winning for some is a choice, few get it by chance and for the elite few it’s a habit. There is no looking back when you are a winner. I beleive our cricket team has gained a lot of inspiration and motivation in the current series.
There is all gain and no loss. It’s not because they are unbeaten so far in the series but in many other aspects like the uplifting and ever increasing team morale.
It was a comfortable ride for the team in the first two encounters in this T20I series. The first one was a high scoring match and the boys displayed great character with both bat and ball to win it comfortably chasing second. You gain lot of courage and self belief when you successfully chase a high score in this limited over format of the game.
The second one also won with ease which was a complete team effort. The next two games were not very high scoring and our boys stretched both games to super overs that eventually won by them. The seemingly easy games for the Kiwis snatched away by our boys and our skipper admitted that. It’s a great display of character by our boys and especially the seamers with the ball.
In the super overs we won both encounter by the heroics of our boys. It’s not by chance but because of the game plan with high team morale. Fortune favours the brave. They wanted to make it right from the first ball and preferred not to wait and observe the bowler. The bowler is always on the back foot in an over when the first ball is a big hit.
I beleive our boys have made it up a habit as winners giving equal importance to win each game and not just a series win which is already with us. Today we have the last match of this T20I series. On this occasion i wish our heroes great time on the ground. Let’s witness another great game of cricket!
