Ashes 2017: Nightmare for ECB

Ashes 2017, a story of English nightmares and sleepless nights Australia reclaimed the Ashes after beating England by an inning and 41 runs in third Test to take 3-0 lead. Australia celebrate after winnning the Ashes series against England. Having grown up watching Ponting, Hayden and Gilchrist, Lee, McGrath and Warne tear into England, the heart yearns to see the horrid Aussies getting vanquished. An Australian Ashes defeat at home would do wonders.  England bat first. Stoneman is steely, Malan and Bairstow are brilliant. Vince and Root throw away starts, but no harm done. Momentary solidity is all that this England team offers. A year-long attempt to drive their fans insane. 384/4 becomes 403 all out. Not nearly enough on the track. For the line-up dubbed the deepest in Test cricket, England are surprisingly eager to give away their lower-order wickets.

Indian Hockey🏑:Near Extinction

Introduction : You wake up in the morning and the first thing that comes to your mind is the India – Pakistan Hockey match, which is all set to begin at 3 p.m., today. As the day passes and I am all geared up to watch the match, I see the roads are all deserted, yet the televisions aren’t switched on.India is a nation of sport freaks and to find only a few old people watching the game on the television set  is very surprising. When I stop by to ask why, all they say is  ‘stop wondering, it’s just a hockey match’. This is the sad story of our national game.  Hockey has a history of over a century in our country. This is the only game that  gave India international fame in the sports arena.
 India participated in the Olympics in 1928 and won the Gold in Hockey. India won 6 straight consecutive gold medals in Hockey till 1956. This period 1928-1956 is hence called the golden era of Indian Hockey. No Indian team till date has reached close to breaking this record. This period saw great pla…

Inside:-El Classico

El Clásico. No two words can grasp the sports world’s  AN ABRIDGED HISTORY OF EL CLÁSICO
The rivalry between the the two most successful clubs in football started with an oft-ignored political backstory and contrasts in how both clubs were made. FC Barcelona was founded by Joan Gamper along with several foreign-born players in 1899,  as Madrid had its club founded with Spaniards at the helm in 1902. Madrid had been long considered as the political and social center of Spain. Regional rivalries would be generated due to the nation’s focus on Madrid, which geographically was also in the center of Spain.
FC Barcelona was considered to be the symbol of the Catalan people by the centralist government in the 1930s. Military general Francisco Franco, disenchanted with the changing political climate in Spain with the fall of the monarchy, staged a Coup d’état in 1936, leading to a bloody Civil War victory for his Nationalist side in 1939. One of the earliest casualties was of then-FC Barcelona…
