India’s day of shame

India’s day of shame

IT has been twenty five years (and one day) since the disreputable Republic of India vs state tournament 1996 encounter at Kolkata passed, that resulted in an unpleasant fashion; the players walking off the sector once the Indian crowd got hostile.

Sri Lanka was cruising towards a convincing ending within the 1st semi-final of the ICC Cricket tournament match on March thirteen, 1996 courtesy of a stellar knock from Arvinda Delaware timber, once the Indian crowd started throwing bottles and objects on the bottom.

Sri Lanka handed Republic of India a target of 252 runs from fifty overs that the blue shirts ne’er looked assault achieving. India’s batting line up, except Sachin Tendulkar, folded sort of a house of cards, putting in place a simple ending for the guests.
