I am a cricket fan, I am an Indian cricket fan and guys, understand one thing, I expect players playing for India to score runs for India, take wickets for India and field well for India. I want them to give their 100% there and try their damn hardest to win matches for India. That is what is my expectation from them.
I do not expect them to speak out or explain why a colleague went the wrong way, why their board’s president’s son in law was betting, or to appease you folk and give you more headlines.
If you really are after the truth, then, investigate, find out the truth and bring it out in the open, don’t expect others to do your job.
What a player might feel of the current situation is his own view and he is well within his rights to air them or keep quiet. Stop blackmailing the players by quoting headlines that the fan’s deserve to know what is going on in their minds. We fans only want them to focus and play well for India. That is solely my expectation from them.
Let them play, there is an important tournament to be won.
