I wouldn't call it arrogance rather aggression. Sree was way too aggressive than how most of the Indians would like to see their idols carry themselves. His attitude may seem right for an Australian who are considered to be the masters of sledging on field. It is quite unfortunate for the young man with tons of potential to see his career end at a very early stage just because he did not carry himself properly. Hope Sanju and others take lessons from it and make great strides in their career. However, the prospects of Sanju taking center stage looks bleak until Dhoni decides to take off his gloves behind the wicket.

In India, aggression is always treated as arrogance.. Its like telling an Indian, Dairy products is not vegetarian...

The reason is simple... Our culture donot considers display of aggression as a positive virtue.

Sreesanth always displayed this sort of extreme aggression, which definitely looked odd and arrogant. The rebellious nature always frowned upon... The reason why he doesn't even enjoy his own local people support is primaryily because of this fact.

How Kerala boy Sanju Samson made it to Team India


When the news of his entry into the Indian cricket team reached 19-year-old Sanju Viswanathan Samson, he was attending his usual training session in the Thiruvanthapuram Medical College ground.
When he returned to his residence Liji Hut in Mulloorkonam, a coastal fisherman village near Vizhinjam at 8 pm on Tuesday, he was welcomed by villagers and TV channel crews outside his house.

Sanju will be fighting England in the five-match ODI series and one-off Twenty 20 against England. The first match of the series begins in Bristol on August 25.

When the news of his inclusion in the team came as TV on 7 pm, Sanju returned home in a car to seek blessings of his family and friends.

Sanju said the news was confirmed by a friend on the way back. His father Viswanath Samson, a former policeman in Delhi Police, was excited.

His mother, Liji Samson, said she was blessed to have a son like Sanju.

"I am extremely happy to find place in the team. But I don't expect anything from the game. All I wish is to play well to bring fame to the Indian team. The selection to the Indian team increases my responsibility," said Sanju Samson to reporters.
Sanju studied in Delhi till Class 7 since his father was in Delhi Police.

In fact, it was Viswanath Samson, a football coach who inspired Sanju to take up cricket.

Though his father tried to get his son a place in cricket camps run by former cricketers, he failed to convince them about his son's talents.

He later quit his job and returned to Kerala.

Sanju later found a way to his guru and former Ranji coach Biju Varghese.

"I inquired about the details of the cricket coaching to Sandeep Raveendran, a boy I met on the road with cricket kit while on his way to training. I was introduced to the camp run by Biju through former BCCI statistician Sudheer Ali," Sanju said about his beginning in an earlier interview.

He was selected to the under-13 Kerala cricket team in 2007. He showed calibre as a batsman in the first match by hitting a century.

His talent was at its peak when he scored a double century in the first match in under-16 Kerala team. He was selected to Kerala Ranji team in 2011 where he scored another century in the first match against Vidharbha.

Sanju was picked up by Rajastan Royals IPL team in 2013. He scored 339 runs in the IPL.

His performance in the ODI against India will decide whether he would find place in the Indian team in the World Cup to be played in Australia and New Zealand.

Sanju and his family went to the churches in and around Thiruvananthapuram on Tuesday to pray.

"I will be there at the Medical College grounds in Thiruvanthapuram on Wednesday too for training," said Sanju before leaving the residence.

It is the ground that turned the destiny of an ordinary coastal village boy to that of an Indian cricket team member.

Not exactly true. Indians do like their players being aggressive against opponents. Who doesn't like that? However there is an extend beyond which it'll be considered as attitude problem. We did receive the aggression shown by Sourav, Yuvaraj and even Sachin on the opponents with applause. But Sree did it way too often and crossed the moral limits.

the problem of sree is that when he is more arrogance he could not utilise his skill set, which he has.

National Games 2015: Kerala gears up for staging the 35th National Games of India


Thiruvananthapuram, Aug 9: Work is on at a furious pace to ready the 30 venues for the January 31-February 14, 2015, National Games in Kerala. Jacob Punnoose, former director general of Kerala Police, who is overseeing the conduct of what would be the biggest sporting extravaganza in the state, said the infrastructure to be created for the Games is ultra-modern with all the facilities.

“When I took over, things were at a standstill or in an abandoned state in 18 of the 27 places where the facilities had to be created. Of these, nine venues had to be built from scratch and today 12 venues are ready and at the remaining venues, 90 percent of the work is over and they will all be ready in another 60 days,” Punnoose told IANS.

The soft-spoken Punnoose, after retiring from police, was appointed in 2012 as chief commissioner and principal coordinator of the Games. The size of the event should be seen from the perspective of the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi. In Delhi, there were 16 events and around 6,000 athletes competing, whereas in the National Games there are 36 events taking place at 30 venues in seven of the 14 districts of the state with around 13,500 athletes and officials taking part.

“The total estimated expenditure for the event has been pegged at Rs.611 crore ($1 billion). This includes Rs. 450 crore for creating the infrastructure and Rs. 161 crore for the actual conduct of the event during the 15 days,” said Punnoose. One of the highlights of the mega event is a Rs.160 crore brand new stadium on a 34-acre campus of the Kerala University on the city outskirts where the opening and closing ceremonies would be held.

“This is the only stadium in South India which is built as per the norms of the International Cricket Council (ICC) and FIFA (football’s governing body). It has a 50,000 seat capacity,” said Punnoose, adding that it would be ready in a month’s time. Another state-of-the-art facility is the football stadium at Thrissur, which is 90 percent complete. The Sachin Tendulkar co-owned Kerala Blasters Indian Super League (ISL) team management has already vouched that the ground is of world class.

“The brand new hockey ground fast coming up at Kollam will be the only one with a synthetic turf in Kerala. The ground is in picturesque surroundings with a lake amid a lot of greenery. It would make one of the most beautiful hockey grounds in the world,” said Punnoose.

The Rs. 50-crore Games Village, coming up on the outskirts of the capital, is another marvel and would accommodate 5,000 people in three-star facilities.

“We felt that there was no need to build a permanent structure so we went in for a village which could be dismantled after the event is over. Then some of the rooms would be re-erected at 200 places, mostly around the various playgrounds in the state, as many of these places do not have any rooms, especially for women athletes and officials,” said Punnoose.

The Kerala government has roped in Sachin Tendulkar as the goodwill ambassador of the Games. Other sports legends will be joining him in promoting the event. They will also be inaugurating the new venues.

“The major promotion of the event would be held some time towards the end of the year through a mass run simultaneously covering 3,500 km across the state,” added Punnoose, who said that the Games’ staff strength would touch 1,000 by the end of the year. Some 7,000 physical education students would be the volunteers for the Games.

“From nowhere and in a very short period, we have reached here and slowly things are falling into place. All of us are well geared for what could be the biggest sporting event that the country has seen,” said Punnoose. The organisers expect to get President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi to grace the occasion. They are also planning to invite world-renowned sportspersons to witness the event.

160 crore is Gok's share and concessionaire is spending another 100-140 crore making it a 260-300 crore affair.

Sun Group opt out of inaugural Indian Super League
Last Updated: Thursday, August 14, 2014, 11:55

Sun Group opt out of inaugural Indian Super League
Zee Media Bureau

New Delhi: Sun Group, owners of the Bangalore franchise of Indian Super League (ISL) are set to pull out of the inaugural edition of the football tournament which will kick-start on October 12. The reason behind the fall-out is believed to be irreconcilable differences between the Chennai-based group and the tournament organisers IMG-Reliance. A official announcement is expected within 24 hours.

Earlier this week, the organisers of the tournament have disapproved the partnership between the Kalanithi Maran-controlled Sun Group and JSW Group-owned Bengaluru FC. It can be taken into account that Ananth Nagarajan, Head of Sports for Sun Group, had claimed that their tie-up with JSW Group was important as they, as a group, hadn’t been involved in football previously.

Besides, there were concerns with the Bangalore franchise venue, the Kanteerava Stadium. The stadium turf was declared unfit by pitch consultant Greg Gillin, a Wembley Stadium expert. And the full availability of the stadium was also in doubt with the franchise getting only Sunday slots. Interestingly, the Nehru Stadium in Chennai is the back-up venue booked by the organisers for the 2014 edition of the ISL.

According to reports, the organisers have already opened talks with other interested bidders keeping Chennai as the new base of the franchise. The 14 players that were selected by Sun Group during the domestic players auction for the Bangalore franchise last month will be transferred to the newly-formed franchise.

Other franchises of the eight-team tournament are Atletico de Kolkata, Delhi Dynamos FC, Kerala Blasters FC, Mumbai City FC, North East United FC, FC Pune City and Team Goa.

Honour hockey player, MP writes to CM

M.B. Rajesh, MP, on Thursday urged Chief Minister Oommen Chandy to honour P.R. Sreejesh, a member of the Indian hockey team that bagged silver in the Commonwealth Games. In a letter addressed to the Chief Minister, Mr. Rajesh said Mr. Sreejesh was the only sportsman from Kerala to win a medal in the Games.

Saying that there was a lukewarm response on the part of State government to Mr. Sreejesh’s success,

Mr Rajesh urged the Chief Minister to treat hockey and other games on a par with cricket. “Promoting just cricket means injustice to our sports tradition. There must be equal treatment of all forms of sports. The Chief Minister who visited Sanju Samson after he was selected to the Indian cricket team must honour Mr. Sreejesh too,” Mr. Rajesh said.

He blamed the State government for not giving Mr. Sreejesh the job he was promised. “Tamil Nadu has given him job and a house worth Rs.35 lakh. It is high time to honour him,’’ Mr. Rajesh said.
