A WHITE XMAS


There was no EPL games this week due to heavy snowfall. The much anticiapted clash between Chelsea and Man Utd has been postponed. Just as well because of Chelseas form.In the only encounter Sunderland went to 5th when they beat Bolton 1-0.
In Serie A Inter were crowned World Club Champions when they defeated African outfit TP Mazembe. Inter were too good as they trounced the Africans in Dubai.Juve conceded in the 90th minute against Chievo after being reduced to ten men and AC Milan were beaten 1-0 BY Roma.Former Milan man Marco Boriello scoring for the Romans.
In LA Liga Barcelona were emphatic again as they ran out 5-1 winners. De Maria svaed ten man Madrid as they beat Sevilla 1-0. So Madrid keep up the pace


South Africa beat India in the First Test in Centurion Park. All thanks to devasting bowling from Morne Morkel in the first innings and superb centuries by Hash ,AB and a double ton by Kallis.
I met Hash on the eve before he was due to bat. For my readers Hash is looking Top Class. Man looks physically strong and as always mentally in tune. We chatted for a bit.I said century Hash and  a century he got. I took a two year old kid to meet Hash.This youngster is a friends son and a aspiring Hashim Amla fan.Believe it or not this two year old imitates Hash and he just wanted to meet Hashim Amla.
So I called Hash and set it up. The kid was thrilled. He just sat in Hash's lap and said Hashim Amla, Hashim Amla all the time. Hash true to his word made it special for the little lad and gave so much of his time
Its amazing you know to see our youngsters andkid aspiring to be what Hashim Amla is. It just shows the stature and grace that he has brought to World Cricket. Not only is he an icon now for our youngsters but he is a great World Cricketer. And off the pitch he is a remarkable human being that leaves behind a leagacy. He has this ambience and precence about him. That visit to this little kid clearly shows to me what Hashim Amla has become from the day I met him four years ago.


Warnie looks after me in Melbourne, just as Sachin and Ganguly do in India: Pietersen

Melbourne, Dec 9 : England batsman Kevin Pietersen has said that he is looked after by former Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne in Melbourne, in the same way as Indian batting maestro Sachin Tendulkar does in Mumbai or former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly does in Kolkata.

Pietersen's comments come after he was fined 239 dollars for being busted speeding in a 475,000 dollar Lamborghini Gallardo organised by Warne in Melbourne.
The star batsman said that Warne had organised the bright new yellow car as one mate doing a good turn for another.
"This is Warnie's patch and when I'm in town, he looks after me," the Herald Sun quoted Pietersen, as saying.
"Just the same as Sachin (Tendulkar) does in Mumbai or (Sourav) Ganguly in Kolkata," he added.
Pietersen was nabbed by a police officer using a laser speed detector.
The 30-year-old was allegedly travelling at 121km/h in an 110km/h zone on the Geelong Ring Road.
Earlier, he had said that he felt for Tendulkar, who had to drive his Ferrari around Mumbai at 2a. m. to avoid being mobbed. (ANI)
