New Era Begins: Australia vs. New Zealand "A Day Night Test Match"

27th November Friday History going to write itself in the form of Day Night Test Match. A decade long debate to make Test Cricket popular which creates lots of theories to try something different to save Test Cricket. One of the theory was to have Day Night Test, since ODI already being played hence Color Clothing and using White Ball makes no sense as its have to be with White Clothing but problem is ball, Red Ball is not visible in a flood lights and combination of White Kit and White Ball won't suit.

"How ball will play whether it will be visible or not, whether baller will ables to swing it" will be a debate among players and cricket experts but as a fan prospective either the following test match will be hit or flop. Whether it will be over in first day itself or will be cheered for 5 days. Whatever the outcome it would be will it gonna be quite excited because we never had such experimentation before in Test Cricket. Day Night First Class Match with Pink Ball did played in Sheffield Shield Season of 2013-14. Match ended in 3 days for a experimental purpose although those lucky players who did have a inaugural game in domestic circuit or those who going to be a part of the history by playing the 1st International Test will be much more excited with a brand new era.

Day Night Test Match if become successful then it would create a great benefits on Broadcasting rights which Cricket Boards sold in very lesser amounts to Asian broadcasters. Specially Boards like New Zealand, Australia will going to get a greater value from a Asian broadcasters and will value to add in a balance sheet. Normally in New Zealand Test Match starts from 3 am IST (Indian Standard Time) none from India gonna wakeup and witness that Test Match hence broadcasters interest remain dim to claim that rights with this new era they can have a test match from Afternoon or Evening so that Morning crowd from Asia who switches TV can enjoy the pleasant of Test Match. Cricket Australia too can shift 1 or 2 hours of a Test Match played in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia. 

Although every experiment should be welcome either its on the professional game or in the professional life, this is how we can come to know the good and bad of something we're about to try. DRS was a one such experiment which is now easily established but remaining in a debate even after successful adaptation. Debates are on to make it more perfect, tries to bring excellence by putting money on it and addition of some extra tool which can help the Teams to make sure that decision goes on the favour of them not against them, all experts and players will keep talking and list of suggestions will keeps on increasing until and unless that system won't become perfect, this is how a simple idea shapes up as a theory and later practically implemented. 

Day Night Test Match is also a simple ideology to make a Test Match popular although Test Match is never be a game to sell, its upto the skills and motive to play. If tomorrow's breed start ignoring Test Match then no matter Test Match being played in Night only will loose all its glory and charm because either players won't have skills or not interested at all to play 90 overs a day for next 5 days. The tradition of 134 years Test Match Cricket or First Class Cricket more then a century before never started for crowd appreciation started to show skills and bring a competition among War players in a different battleground, now when concern arises to get a crowd for game because to generate revenue for the boards hence all objectives are now to try something different to "Save Test Cricket". 

Why suddenly "Incredible India" become "Intolerant India" ?

For 60 years we had a debate that "Why India is a Tolerant Country ?" now from last 60 days we're debating that "How India become Intolerant ?" couple of unfortunate incidents and VVIPs and VIPs protest was enough to burn the topic on air. From last 60 years we was quite and keeps the patience on for our country. We never be out of our mind which sets the wrong example infront of World. We never crossed our lines we remain peaceful but suddenly after local crowd comes together and join the fight against corruption in "Anna Andolan" then incident of "Nirbhaya" which shaked the doors of Ministry and was enough to make Capital of India "Noisy". Those protests may gave us Political Party and many NGOs but the fact is after Independence and that particular time frame does have sound equals to Emergency. That time period make people understand that we should comes on road and will not let our Politicians to have peaceful nights. At a chill temperature everyone played their part for a betterment of our Citizens and Country.

But now couple of voices raised from named and fame gained personalities and all attentions are on them, many of us may not even know those peoples before and the award they received when received and for what they received found them in a headline to return award. The announcement they made in Press Conference in a interview of News channels etc. A small fuel raised the fire when other personalities start condemning "Award Wapsi" incident and India divided between "Intolerant" and "Tolerant" people of India. May be this debate has anything to do with our Country's progress or not but is good enough to share limelight on this issue. Those who was quite rusty in writing will start expressing their view points on various platforms, schools will now have a topic to have a debate competition on it, political parties will now have a subject to fight election, News channels will have moment to generate TRP and International Media will have a specific object to explain India.

Question arises that what would happen if Class peoples won't voice up and raise the bar of the subject ? What does happened even if they voiced up ? What does it impacted in a Common mans life ? Another group of people said that let people come up with their thoughts and let people speaks, this is how Democracy works. But where Common Man has a time and platform to speak ? Common Man if start speaking negative then he would better ready to face the consequences via various laws, VVIPs and VIPs always have a exemptions from any Law and even if they face any such section then either it will be consider as conspiracy or injustice towards the icon of the Nation. Lets not forget any such controversy indirectly malign our Country's reputation because if Icons, Rich and Class peoples are not happy in the Country then Common Man will surely not.

Logically speaking VVIPs and VIPs not even needs to feel sorry and become disturb on India's social or political situation because they have all comforts in life then whats the problem ? We often become intolerant when we stuck in Long Jams, Power Cut in Summer or No Power at all, connection of Saline Water or force to have Impure Water in the House, Jammed Savage Line from many days, No Connection of any kind of Communication in life. VVIPs and VIPs did face Jams but in High Class SUVs or Vanity Bus have all kinds of facilities by which you can even conclude any meeting or can enjoy your moments while in a road then what exactly this Intolerance means for Premium life style ? Money can buy any convenience of life you will get Govt. and Private Duty people to salute you and let you feel a special in earth.

Its good to be Intolerant sometimes but only in betterment of India, if our concern can help in a progress of Making India then we should join the hand together and toe to toe in a march to show that India is now independent from any dreads, customs, superstitious and from all kind of blind faiths and our youth can not be stop to grow and help India to become Next Superpower. Already high class society known for Candle Light March and other Peaceful March to show unity and protest and they have rights to do so too, they're free to walk and bring out the attention and let Govt. to broke out their silence but they also needs to realize that whether its benefiting the Country's well being or not ? Unnecessary are we becoming a subject to talk outside in a unassertive viewpoint ?
