A few failures and we mock him Cricket is a cruel sport,  one day you are hailed as a champion and the other day you are brought to ground zero. Few poor outings and the fans go crazy.

Good fortune does not last long and for some, the unpredictability of human life makes it a glorious gamble just to stay alive. One of the biggest reasons of popularity of sports in human culture is because it is at best a metaphor for the human condition. And then there is cricket - the game, as they say, of glorious

Does Raina deserve another shot in Tests?

Raina should be given a chance to prove his game "I have not been given enough chances to prove my calibre as a Test cricketer. You can't judge a player on the basis of just one match after a hectic series of one-day and T20 games. I am not asking for five Test matches to prove myself. Give me two-three games. And if I don't perform, drop me forever," Raina said recently. There is no doubt that he is one of the best I

5 things India should do to win a Test series in Sri Lanka after two decades

The sight of batsmen scoring big runs to help the
