Virat Kohli’s mind-blowing performance at the Hobart not only helped India win over Sri Lanka with bonus points but also enlightened hopes of India being able to qualify for finals of Commonwealth Series, in case , Australia wins against Sri Lanka in the upcoming match. It is up to fate now, whether India would get through the finals as all Indian cricket fans and Team India can do now is pray for Australia’s win over Sri Lanka. However, BCCI closely marked , 23-year-old Virat Kohli’s confidence during the last game. The last match not only fetched Virat Man-Of -The-Match award but also made him the Vice-captain of Team India for the upcoming Asia Cup.
Be it Sehwag’s non-performance in the series or his injuries as explained by Kris Srikkanth , reason being not selecting him for Asia Cup, it is Virat Kohli , who got to replace him as the vice-captain, over the much anticiapted Gautam Gambhir. His marvellous knock of 133 runs (not out) in 86 balls was an eye-catcher for the world and a ray of hope for Team India, after the Master-Blaster retires. He completed his 9th century in the last match and can be assumed as a probable captain of the future. After Yuvraj Singh, it has been Virat Kohli who looks full of confidence and seems a tough challenge for opponents round the world. Malinga who is a terror of Sri Lanka’s pace attack and has the ability of bowling 6 yorker in an over also seemed helpless in front of the budding talent. He ended up giving as high as 24 runs of an over , maximum of which was scored by Virat.
As Indian Cricket Fans, all we can pray and expect is Kohli continues this way much like the Little Master- Blaster , Sachin Tendulkar, whose replacement is as much a miracle as yesterday’s Bonus point win of India over Sri Lanka was. Yet it happened all thanks to Sehwag , Sachin , Gambhir , Raina and above all Virat Kohli !
Reporters curious enough to get the update on Team India selection for the upcoming Asia Cup ended up annoying Kris Srikkanth, chairman of selectors, after the press – conference. Srikkanth had announced the 15 players for Asia Cup which excludes Zaheer Khan and Virendra Sehwag.
Curious to find out the actual reason as to why Sehwag was chucked out for the Asia Cup , the reporters repeated the same question differently which apparently harassed him so much that he asked them to Shut-Up ! He reasoned Sehwag and Zaheer being excluded on grounds of injury and after the reports from physio however, the reporters doubted Sehwag being out due to his bad performance throughout the Australian Series , so far !
Bengal Chief Minister ,Mamata Banerjee aka Didi, seems to have been attracting unwanted Media attention in yet another incident where her nephew , Akash Banerjee was taken into custody by the cops , after he roughed up with a traffic constable at around 11am , today 29th Feb. He has been booked along with 2 others for rash driving.
Lets hope, Didi does not end up terming the incident as ‘Sajano Ghotona'(Cooked-Up Story) , like several rape cases and TMC brutality and Cop’s reluctance to react at TMC supporters, allegedly attacking reporters and journalists,covering the conflicts between TMC and CPM workers on the Bandh – Day , 28th feb.

Previously two incidents of rape had shocked the nation , questioning the safety of women in Bengal. A 30-year-old woman was reported to have been raped by gang of robbers and prior to this incident , a 37-year-old mother of two was raped in a moving car. Initially, commenting this incident as got-up case, chief minister, Mamata Banerjee, faced criticisms,once the rape was proved. Gang rape by robbers too was stated as conspiracy against the government , by the CM.
Her apology on strikes promoted by her in the past, as opposition and request to people of Bengal not to entertain such strikes has also been contradictory and has been termed as hypocrisy.Mamata Banerjee has been under fire from opposition in the past for repeated child deaths in various hospitals of Bengal. Well, incidents of such kind are surely raising concerns however, Chief Minister’s blunt statement has been more concerning where she has been accusing incidents as conspiracy! It is time that will decide if these incidents are truly conspired but with the present change in the administration of state and the promising leadership of Mamata, Bengal hopes for a change for good. Since TMC won in Bengal and ‘Didi’ held the CM’s post she has also been noticed contradicting the UPA on number of issues.
