Surely NARKASUR has been a unlucky demon for the states of Goa and its cricket association.

Probably he should call it a day and do some real samajsewa in his constituency of Aldona and take sanyas from politics and cricket.

I respect this Game and woe to the rain-maker for dampening what otherwise seemed to be a bright day. Perhaps the ground is not drained properly allowing the water to dissipate.

I believe they are going to refund the fares within 30 days. Politicians should not be allowed to touch the game with a 10-foot pole. The grandeur and the sporting spirit of this game have been besmirched nationally as well as internationally, by thinking only of how to make fast buck at every turn.

Why are the criminals involved in the ticket scam of the last match still not punished? Is it not injustice to the innocent people who got injured in the lathi-charge by police in the gate-crash?
