The two faces of Cricket

From a country so deprived of heroes in the recent past, from a country which has often found solace in the game of Cricket for it has been one of the few things that has gone right throughout the nations history — From Pakistan, two cricketers, one of them an idol to many and a matchwinner on his day, decide to take drugs and get banned for a couple of years.

And then, another man from a land already abundant in sport heroes — this man still manages to lead in his own unique way, commands respect from people in countries like India for his on and off the field activities — From Australia he comes and builds home for the homeless in a land which is not his own.

It is men like these, which eventually make good teams different from bad teams.
