Cricket sport fanaticism taken too far

4th ashen test | pranks ideasIn the early hours of the first day of this vital clash that ended with Australia convincing winners on the pitch at the 4th Ashes Test Cricket 2009 season. England collapsed to be all out for 102 in the face of some improved Australian bowling, with more than the occasional tired-looking shot being played.

A member of a supporters group calling itself 'The Fantatics' carried out an act of sporting terrorism, he pulled off a shocking prank by setting off the fire alarm at the England team's hotel. Resulting for the whole team to be forced out into the Leeds 4am at night. While fire fighters checked the hotel for the source of the alarm. They were allowed back into their rooms after a good 20 minutes had passed.

The web site 'The Fantatics', established in 1997, have a history of making gooses of themselves on the world stage. As recently as this year's Wimbledon tournament organizers were appalled by their over-the-top antics. 'The Fanatics' have come out and admitted that members of the group were indeed responsible for the so-called pranks ideas.

Anything a bunch of yellow shirt wearing Australian tennis fans try to throw back at the Barmy Army would only pale into insignificance, which might go part of the way towards explaining this mindless escalation. Annoying as the Barmy Army can be, they don’t stoop to the kind of behavior displayed by 'The Fanatics'. They sing hard, they sing long, they drive you to the point of murder, but as far as I know they don’t go setting off fire alarms at hotels.

Sourav bats for Dravid
On seeing the above title do not think that Sourav Ganguly has given up his decision to quit from all the versions of the game of cricket and is back in the scene. E mean to say that Sourav, nicknamed as ‘Dada’ by the fans has hailed the decision of the selection committee to bring back Rahul Dravid and thereby proving that only form was the problem associated with senior players and age had nothing to do with performance. Sourav expressed hope that the right hander would fare well in the upcoming tri-series. For the past one year Rahul Dravid – ‘ The wall ’ had been away from the one day format of the game. Sourav tried to strengthen his contention by citing the inclusion of Nehra as another example. Sourav’s statement assumes significance in this scenario as we find the three batsmen Laxman, Dravid and Sachin who are at mid thirties of age, delivering a consistent good performance.
