    interesting paragraph........

    i am not posting the complete article, coz last time i did that , nobody thought it was interesting and shaed their thought......so only one paragaph this time....



    Englishmen pulling out of tours on flimsy grounds has always irritated Indians. Geoff Boycott didn't tour India until the world-record aggregate was within his grasp. In 1981-82, he played three Tests, went past Garry Sobers's record of 8032 runs, played one more Test in Kolkata (where he disappeared to play golf in the middle of the match), and was gently asked to go back home. He wasn't particularly fussed since that was what he had in mind once the record was his. From such an India-hater Boycott has metamorphosed into the India-lover of television. He loves Indian players, Indian actresses, and even Indian food. Such is the pull of television money. The delicate walls of Boycott's stomach are now lined with Indian rupees.

    Reminds me of Richard Hadlee...he always found some excuse to skip the Indian tour.

      Meanwhile...The Telegraph, is quoting a well-informed source from UK that the reason of Trescothick going back in a hurry, and tearfully, may be that his wife found out that he was having an extra-marital affair.
