Editor’s Pick (ODI) England - West Indies

Tomorrow is the fourth ODI. Quick recap.
19th September - England won by 7 wickets
21st September - Match Abandoned
24th September - England won by 124 runs

The match takes place at the Oval, London. England is booming with confidence. They are leading the series 2-1 and literally crushed the West Indies by a large margin. Moeen Ali came out of nowhere with a bolt of energy to hit 61 runs from 14 deliveries. England smashed 369 runs in 50 overs. West Indies were all out by the 40th over, getting only 245 runs on the board. Moeen Ali, as expected, was the man of the match for his 79-ball 102 runs. . Chris Gayle’s 94 was but in vain. Would have been nice to watch his century. He deserved it.

Editor’s Pick: India - West Indies

First Match - Abandoned Second Match - India Beat West Indies by 105 runs. Third Match - India Beat West Indies by 93 runs. Fourth Match - Hmm… I don’t really want to talk about it.
Oh well.. Here goes. It was a rather embarrassing defeat. The series looked very much in the kitty when India had to chase 190 runs. The faithful Indian Fans probably even started celebrating. Even though the first three wickets fell rather early, Rahane stuck in there and hit 60 runs to pave what looked like a really short road to victory. And then came Dhoni. No one would have even considered the chance of a defeat. Not even a pessimist.
Time moved slowly after that. Or at least Dhoni did. He batted and batted and batted. Remember that time Sunny Gavaskar scored a 174-ball 36 runs? It was 1975 all over again. Dhoni’s innings were just as excruciatingly painful. It would have been worth it had India won of course. India fell short of the target and West Indies won by 11 runs. They were probably surprised t…

Women - Object of Respect, not Objectification

I had to visit the neurologist the other day. I call up the hospital and find out if one would be on call in the evening and had my appointment booked. Fifteen minutes before the scheduled appointment, I reach the receptionist to confirm the room. She goes, “ The lady neurologist will see you in room number 10”. I was stumped. What was the message she was trying to convey? Neurologist is in? She’s a lady? Do I want to see a lady neurologist?


It got me wondering. Does being a lady make her any less of a doctor? Why can’t the receptionist just say “ The neurologist is in?” And then I wondered .. does anyone ever say “lady receptionist”? No. Then why this tag for a doctor? Women today are just being designated to posts where they can look pretty. Looking pretty seems more important than doing a good job. There are actresses who have confessed that they were told by the director to just look pretty and needn’t worry about acting. It is a pretty sad state of affairs when women are being loo…
