Trip to Stinson beach

Trip on- 11/19/2008                                                                                                                           After coming to US, for the first time I had a good trip from past 3months.I along with my friends went to Stinson beach.Firstly I should thank Birthday boy Vishal&Co (for arranging this trip) and Hasti Raju(As he was out for the trip for some circumstances,so I was opted).
                                                           Zigzag roads on the way
HISTORY                                                                                                                                      Stinson Beach, California is an unincorporated community in Marin Country, California, on the west coast of the United States. The population of the Stinson Beach CDP (Cesus Designated Place) was 751 at the 2000 census.It's near important attractions are Muir woods National monument, Muir Beach and Mount Tamalpais .It has a long beach with occasional opportunities for surfing, although the water is cold and fog is common throughout the year.
Hilly Area in Stinson Beach

Stinson beach is about 2hr drive from sunnyvale where I 'm located through car.Stinson Beach is about a 30-minute drive from the Golden Gate Bridge. On our way to stinson beach we faced a 10 mile distance road in zig zag way.My mind deviated to my home country when I saw such zig zag roads on My way to SriSailam with my family.On my way to trip I came across companies like ,Oracle etc in SFO.

The flowing water sounds,beautiful sunshine,foggy clouds,whispering sounds of birds,beautiful scenaries made me to fly in the air.We had fun there by playing cricket in the beach.We all friends gathering in the beach made me to remember the Happydays song "Oh My Friend".
On my return to home I was experienced to see the fabulous and magnificent Golden Gate bridge. Joy filled my heart on this blissful day which my mind went into tranquility state after visiting Stinson beach. Overall our trip ended with fun and pleasure.

Yuvi rocks again in 2nd ODI

Yesterday waked up so lately,because I slept on satuarday lately as we had a party on saturday night.After that we played a cricket match,so after long time we palyed cricket again in US(played long back, ie before 2 months).In the evening ,thaught of watching cricket ie India vs England whichheld on Indore.This time I thaught that England will bounce back on India .India bat first ,it lost 3 early wickests ie sehwag,rohit and raina.It's Yuvi and Gambhir who played consistently ,ie they both hold for 4th wicket for 134 runs.Yuvi once again played exquisite innings with 118(122 balls) with 15*4's nd 2*6's . Lastly Yusuf Pathan smshed in slog overs(ie 50 in 55 balls),so India ended the game with a score of 291/9 50 overs.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni takes Yuvraj Singh on a ride around the ground on the motorbike Yuvraj won as the Man of the Match, India v England, 2nd ODI, Indore, November 17, 2008

Next England started their game losing their ealry wicket ie Ian Bell.2nd wicket holds for 96 runs between Prior and Shah.This time Yuvi also done magic with bowling with 4/28.
At some movement ,Game is on england side when KP and Flintoff are in the field to bat.But those partnership was broken by Yuvi.He took key wickets(Shah,KP,Flintoff,Prior).Sehwag took 3 wickets.England was allout on 238.Yuvi was again declared as man of the match.

India won the first ODI against England

Yuvi's scintillating century made India to post 387/5 in 5o overs. Yuvi scored 138* (78 balls),
Sehwag-85 nd Gambir(51).In the return Engaland was allout for 229(37.3 overs).England suffered
third ever highest loss in ODI's. Peterson played few strokes in his 63.In the end Ravo Bopara struggled for the game with 54*(2 fours nd 5 sixes).KP is unlucky ,in which he was runout by excellent throw by rohit sharma,ofcourse it ws Ravi's fault who called for the run.If Kp would be still in the crease ,we don't know how match would be turned......
Yuvi was awarded man of the match for his 138*(16 4's nd 6 6's)
This was his second best in ODI's .His best is 139 and even this was against England.

India won Border Gavaskar trophy

Yesterday I've watched the 4th test between India and Australia .With 381 as target Aus batsmen Hayden and katich came to bat. During lunch it was 91/3 ,but after lunch Dhoni introduced Mishra to bowl , which made sucess. On his first over he removed hussey.Upto
lunch he haven't made mishra to bowl.After lunch spinners has shown their ability .Harbajam took
4 wickets nd mishra 2. Ishant bowled well ,overall in the series.This time ricky haven't got out in Bhajji's or Ishant bowling.He was runout by excellent throw of mishra.Haddin was caught out by Sachin in mishra bowling.Sachin took his 100 catch ie haddin's catch.Even this test is Laxman's 100 test.And even ganguly's last match is this test.So Dhoni at the end of the match ie on last wicket he asked Dada to do captiancy.Lastly johnson was out in harbajan bowling.Ofcourse he was out as lbw.So india regained the trophy after 6 years.During presentation again Dhoni asked Jumbo to take the trophy..

Farewell to DADA

On delhi test it is JUMBO ie kumble who retired from tests.Now it's dada who retired from test cricket .He played his last test against Australia in kanpur.
We can say saurav as most splendid cricketer with grudgeness in his voice.
He debuted in tests in 1996 against England.He shots towards off side are exquisite.
He can be said as "God of off side". On debut match he scored a century becoming the third
person to score a century in debut in Lords after Harry Graham and John hampshire.
In the 2nd innings he agained scored century ,thus becoming the 3rd person to scored century in both innings in debut.After that he did'nt look back and played memorable innings.
In 2000 he was handed over the captiancy.He was a successful man as a captian over Azaruddin and sunil gavaskar in tests.He is active in the field, dare-devil to others , rigidness in his captiancy.During his captiancy India reached to final in 2003 world cup.In 2004 he has a poor form , and he was expelled from the team due to some circumstances between coach and captain.All critics said that it would be better if he gives retirement.But Dada does'nt care about the critics.He struggled a lot and fought back . He answered all his critics through his bat.He had a good form in tests.So he thaught it's right time to give his retirement and so he announced his retirement. On his last test ie against Austalia he scored 85 in 1st innings and
0 (bad luck ) in 2nd innings.
On the last day , ie on 10 th wicket , dhoni asked Dada to do captiancy. Who can miss his game tactics and his shoutings in the field during captiancy. His movements in the field made us to remember his captiancy days.Once India won the watch , It was little master Tendulkar who directly came to dada and hugged him.
Farewell to The Royal bengal Tiger DADA

Salute to JUMBO

It's a tearful movement to Indian cricket when Kumble announced his retirement in tests.
He annonced his retirement during 2nd test againstAustralia at Feroz Shah Kotla in Delhi.

He said he had decided to quit at the end of the series but brought forward the move once he realised he would not be fit for the final test starting on Thursday.

He is one of the greatest ever spin bowler in world cricket after Shane warne and Muralitharan. He was the third highest wicket
taker in tests after Warne and Muralitharan. He scalped 619 wickets in tests with an average of
29.66.A qualified engineer, Kumble has also taken 337 wickets from 271 one-day internationals and quit the shorter form last year.

He is the 2nd bowler after Jim laker to took 10 wickets in an innings against pakistan in feroz shah kotla (10-74)

KUMBLE's Marvellos 10 wickets

Any way what we can say about Jumbo.He was always cool and calm in the field and a Inspirational cricketer to others. Cricket can be said as Gentleman's game if we have cricketer's
like Kumble.

Let's all salute the greatest cricketer ,down to earth person JUMBO.............................
We all hope that U 'll come back agian and serve the Nation as a Spin bowling coach.
