Ever since Gautam Gambhir took the field for Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) in the Indian Premier League with a shoulder injury, there has been a raging debate about whether the current crop of Indian cricketers value playing for their franchise more than their country.However, for Gambhir himself, the club versus country debate means nothing and answering the critics is not his concern.”I don’t want to answer anyone. It is all about being clear to your own conscience. The passion of playing for the country and the joy of representing every Indian across the world can never be replicated. Wearing the blue jerseys means a lot,” he told MAIL TODAY on the sidelines of the India Today Youth Summit.Referring to his decision to make himself unavailable for the Champions League T20 qualifiers, Gambhir said: “It was purely a medical call taken by my doctor. If he had given me the green signal to play, I would have been out their leading KKR.””All the talk about players being ready to fulfil club commitments doesn’t hold true in this case as I will not get any extra money for playing in the Champions League.”Not for once did it occur to me that I should skip the Champions League to please the critics. My doctor feels that I am still not ready to play a match. If we qualify for the main stages and I am allowed to play by my doctor, I will definitely take the field.”Gambhir feels that player management is a must in the modern scenario where teams are playing round the year. “As players we want to play as much as possible when we are doing well, but it is important that players who play in all the three formats are preserved well so that they can play longer and are fresh physically as well as mentally.advertisement”In the modern game, mental fatigue also needs to be avoided. It is important that every country has a pool of 25 players who are talented enough to play at the international level,” he said.No Indian fan can forget Gambhir’s knock of 97 in the final of the World Cup – a pressure cooker situation.Re-living the experience, Gambhir said: “It is every cricketer’s dream to win the biggest prize in the 50-over format of the game. I still believe I should have been a part of the squad in the 2007 World Cup.”But after the disappointment of not getting picked for the World Cup, came the high of winning the 2007 World T20. So that brought about a belief that everything is destined. “After the first few matches of the 2011 edition, came an article by Ian Chappell that I should be dropped and that egged me on and the rest is history.”After the purple patch under ex-coach Gary Kirsten, the drubbing against England under new coach Duncan Fletcher has come as a rude shock for fans.”Every captain and coach is as good as the team. Gary was a very hardworking person and he made us believe in ourselves. He reaped the rewards of the efforts he had put in with the team and deserved every bit of the success.”And after three years, you would obviously miss the person. But life goes on and we must respect his decision to quit and spend time with his family.”As far as the comparison is concerned, it is too early to judge Fletcher and we need to give him time to adapt,” said Gambhir.
The 17-year-olds, from Launceston in Tasmania, are one of several sets of twins competing at the event in 2011, and they say that being a twin on the field does have its benefits, even if they aren’t identical. “Kit normally does the freakish stuff and I’m normally on the receiving end of that, sometimes roles are reversed so there is a bit of a twin thing coming out there sometimes, nothing too telepathic. It certainly shows at some stages how well we know each other,” Dana said. “We can get into each other a bit but we’ve played every single sport in our whole lives together, so when we both fire up we can get pretty in to each other but we’ve been good so far so hopefully we can continue that.”“We are generally pretty good mates outside of it, so we are not too fussed about it,” Kit said. “We are generally pretty competitive people though, we don’t act like it most of the time but when we do something we do it the best that we can,” Dana said. The twins only started playing division one in Launceston last year, with Kit then competing in the 2010 X-Blades National Youth Championships. What once was a sport they just played in the Aussie Rules off-season has now become a sport that the Young’s have become passionate about and hope to progress in. “It’s always been a pre-season thing, but now it’s become something a bit more, it’s a game that we actually look forward to playing over summer and this event reinforces that it would be good to play in later years as well. It’s something we’ll definitely look at playing further,” Dana said. Playing at a National Youth Championships level for the first time, Dana is enjoying the challenge of competing against teams from across the country, and is learning plenty along the way. “Even after one game you pick up a fair bit straight up,” he said. “We are just hoping to upset a few teams and learn a fair bit, we’re looking to be competitive as always, we want to give Tassie the best name we can.”

Mumbai: Indian equities fell for the ninth session in a row on Monday as investors fretted about health of non-banking finance sector, US-China trade tensions and uncertainty over poll outcome.In their longest losing streak in years, the BSE Sensex crashed over 372 points and the NSE Nifty dived nearly 130 points on sustained sell-off across the board. In the past nine sessions, the Sensex has lost 1,940.73 points and the Nifty has given away 599.95 points. The BSE index widened its loss towards the fag-end of the session on emergence of intense selling in financial stocks as fresh concerns over liquidity crunch re-emerged. In percentage terms, however, Sun Pharma was the biggest loser with 9.39 per cent drop. Intra-day, the pharma major’s shares tanked over 20 per cent. Other top Sensex laggards were Yes Bank, Tata Steel and Indusind Bank — falling as much as 5.58 per cent.
Hezbollah chief Hassan Nasrallah warned Friday that his Lebanese Shiite movement will “punish” Israel for the killing of a top leader earlier this month.“The killers will be punished sooner or later… Those who killed our brothers will not know safety anywhere in the world,” he said in a televised tribute to Hassan al-Lakiss, whose killing Hezbollah blamed on Israel despite its denials.“We and the Israelis have accounts that need settling. There are old and new debts between us,” said Nasrallah. Lakiss’s “blood has not been spilt in vain… The punishment will come whenever we decide it,” Hezbollah’s secretary general added.“The Israelis think that Hezbollah is busy (with Syria’s war) and with the situation in Lebanon… I tell them: ‘You’re making a mistake,’” he said.Nasrallah was referring to his movement’s involvement in the war in neighbouring Syria.Thousands of Hezbollah troops are fighting alongside President Bashar al-Assad’s troops, in a bid to crush a massive Sunni-led insurgency.Lakiss was assassinated in the parking of his apartment building on November 4 in the southern suburbs of Beirut, a stronghold of Hezbollah.Nasrallah said the top leader was “one of the brains of Hezbollah,” though he refused to reveal his position in the party, though he did say his role was linked to his “work as a jihadist.”“He worked to develop (Hezbollah’s) capacity,” said Nasrallah, adding he was “a brother and a friend.”The last time a top Hezbollah leader was assassinated was in 2008, when Imad Mughniyeh was killed in a Damascus car bomb blast.Mughniyeh’s killing was also blamed on Israel, Hezbollah’s sworn enemy, which denied involvement.
