It was with much interest that we read Peter Lalor, cricket writer in “The Australian” newspaper, commented on two posts (link1, link2) on our blogsite.
On reading through his comments, we did wonder if we did project a balanced and objective view on this blog.
We have often disagreed amongst ourselves. This is often a sign of different opinions mixing together to form a tolerance-based balance. if nothing, the checks and balances are there. Given that this is a blog in which anyone who cares to can comment, our views have incited open debates and discussions on a range of topics.
We have, from time to time, praised, for example, the Australian team or the English team or the South African team for their strategy, their cricket, their work ethic, their professionalism, etc.
We have criticised teams (mostly Australia and England) for the way they play their cricket. We have also criticised the press (be it Indian or Australian or English — Mike Atherton). We have illuminated, objected-to and criticised crowd behaviour and player behaviour irrespective of where they come from.
But more than anything we have been very very critical of Indian cricket, the players, their attitude, the BCCI and its board members and most of all – the Indian press.
By definition, we are a blog for “Fans of Indian cricket”. it may be expected that we would be somewhat one-eyed in what we say. But we do try to be balanced and objective.
So, are the views and opinions on this blogsite balanced?
We think so. We would, however, welcome your opinions on this.
