The Debut

Date: January 4, 2009
Venue: Newlands, Cape Town, South Africa
England vs South Africa, 3rd Test, Day 2
England are in trouble at 36/3 after restricting South African first innings to 291. Alistair Cook & Ian Bell try to consolidate the innings. Cook falls for 65. Sometime later Bell gets out for 48. A thought suddenly comes to the mind of Mr. Nishant Kumar following the score while tending to his crops in Farmville. He sends a comment to the cricinfo website. A few minutes later his joy knows no bounds as he reads the following on his laptop screen.
"Bell would have reached his 100 only if Cook had reached his," says Nishant. "So all this is Cook's fault." Sounds about right.
His comment had been published with the text commentator agreeing with his views. This was the push he needed to start his new blog on the thing he is most passionate about. The game of cricket. And that's what this blog will be all about. All things cricket.

The comment appeared after the 64th over in England's first innings. Link is here.
