Dear Indian Sports Fans,
With the Cricket World Cup 2011 going on in India, Cricket has taken center stage ...No one had any doubts about that with India being a cricket-crazy nation :).
At the same time we had some great performances by other Indian athletes - Badminton: Saina Nehwal winning the Swiss Open (after a slightly less-than expected performance in All-England); Tennis: Somdev Devvarman reaching the pre-quarter-finals of the Indian Wells (US) tournament, finally going down to World No.1 Rafael Nadal, and Sania Mirza winning the women's doubles at the same tournament.
However, these great moments were overshadowed by cricket.
Through this blog, I would endeavor to keep track of non-Cricket sports in India and bring to you the latest happenings in those - be it Chess (where Vishy is holding sway), Football (Can our team retain AFC championship), Hockey (what is happening to the national sport), and all other sporting disciplines. (though occasionally I may venture into Cricket also :-)..). This will help record and remember what all these great althelets are doing and give these sports a platform...This is my humble contribution as an Indian Sports Fan.
In the Next few posts, I would write about recent performances of Indian athletes in Tennis and Badminton. Watch out !!
Happy Reading !!
