Chak de India!

Harsha Bogle in a quite classic remark spoke on the telecast today that "This could become an anthem if they keep playing like this". It is the new marketing jingle "Chak De India" being played (quite often) on Start Cricket these days that he was referring to. Anybody who got a chance to watch highlights or live telecast today of the [:http://content-ind.cricinfo.com/engvind/engine/current/match/258469.html|test Cricket happening at Trent Bridge] would've in most probability found it difficult to digest watching Indian bowlers (seam bowlers, that too) pull away English wickets so royally on the first day of the match. It could well be the best seam bowling performance by Indian team in decades. Sachin Tendulkar took two catches, missed one - off Zaheer Khan's bowling. The best catch was the one taken by Dravid off Anil Kumble. The live telecast is on Star Cricket, which looks like a better move by ESPNStar to make room for other sports on their regular channels. There have been new programs of various sports on ESPN and Star - sometimes even coverage of [:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carrom|Carrom] tournaments which is quite remarkable.
