    Its really a pity that an excellent player like Saurav Ganguly is hated that much in India.He is the most successful Indian captain in Indian history & shouldn't be treated like an unsuccessful player.He is way underrated,IMO.If he was the member of Pakistan cricket team(I wish he was),he would've been treated like a God.

    Actually that is an over-raction of some idiots and is similar to the the WC incident when Kaif's house was attacked after we lost to Australia. Otherwise Wasim Akram is quite well appereciated in Pakistan despite the accusations of match fixing against him.

    In Ganguly's case, it is totally different, everyone from fan, media, ex-cricketers,, coaches, some of his team mates seems to have been hating him. I can understand why his team-mates and coaches would do that, but everyone else has definately gone overboard on this and as shoaib said it is indeed a pity.

    Is the reaction towards Ganguly not more about his perceived (ok, real) arrogance and attitude, though? His captaincy was very astute in the past, and he did help (for a while) to produce a fine, cohesive unit.

    Yeah LE you got that right.

    In any case I would not like to go into an Indo-Pak debate as I admire the talent which emerges out of both nations. And I do believe the fans of both countries are pretty similar - extreme reactions to most things.

    Players, journalists and fans who have crossed the border have said that they have not found much difference in the two countries. Indians have said Pakistan feels like India. Pakistanis have said India feels like Pakistan.

    I really find it shameful when Indians and Pakistanis fight unnecessarily on the internet forums where the least they can do is show solidarity in a platform which crosses borders in their living rooms on their pcs.

    How politically correct.







    Edit: Sanz, brilliant quote there in the signature. Was the journalist by any chance a Pathan?

    I just blew my nose one day and there it was.

    I have 3 unfinished novels, which I fear will remain so until I overcome the one thing that is holding me back......

    I guess I am just terrified of rejection.

    Still Pratyush,you reap what you sow.
    Many a good or great player or leader has ultimatly had to live by the decisions they made and the way they conducted themselves.
    Just because someone has been a good leader or cricketer ,does not mean he is automaticly a good person.
    I think you may find that of most cricketers in the world Gangully is up top or near top in the most despised by other players,and supporters. I dont know the reasons for this but he must have rubbed a lot of people up the wrong way.

    On the other side of the coin, how many crap (I've decided that my conscience is utterly clear on using that word now, it was on the banner headline of the Independent on Tuesday...) players have ever been despised by opposing teams?

    Only joshin mate,but eddie everyone fears rejection and doubts themselves at some point,but talent shines through,whether it be on a site read by 500 people or in an article read by 5000 ppl,or a book by 500,000 people. Class is permanent , you have to give it a go mate,dont waste it.

    Hmm....

    "Harry turned to see Voldemort approaching as Gollum sneaked behind them, only for the confrontation to be ended abruptly as Fungus the Bogeyman ate Harry and Augustus Gloop sat on Voldemort"

    Personally, I'm not convinced.
