Indian Cricket Team

If there ever was a way to describe an enigma, all one had to do was look at the Indian cricket team.  From the time this sport was introduced in this country the team that the country has fielded has always remained an enigma to the curious observer. 

It was the maharajas who first started the game and played with some exceptional talent alongside their British rulers but Indian cricket really came of age from the year 1969 when an unknown batch of Indians beat New Zealand in their country.  When the feat was repeated in 1971 in the West Indies and England, India had come of age in the cricketing world.

Indian cricket team as of this day consists of players of great qualities and their collective performances outweigh the performance of any team in the world.  But getting then to perform all at one time is a job that no captain has been able to perform to this day.  It is only individual performances that have made India a force to reckon with.  Rarely has there been an occasion where the entire Indian cricket team has performed at the same time.  Unfortunately, such times have always seen a draw and not a win for the Indians. If only half the team would perform every time a match was played India would be as equal if not better then Australia.  One only hopes that with the new talent that is currently surfacing there will be change for the better and we as Indians will have a lot more to cheer about then just the things that did not happen.
