Don't you think media is over-reacting with Sourav issue
December 22, 2006 9:11pm CST
Last night I saw a newsflash in a local TV channel that sourav stays unbeated at 41 in a practice match. What the rubbish is going , earlier we would hear reports about one day and test matches. Now media has gone after the practice matches as well in South Africa to highlight Sourav. I think such attitude to glorify one individual is detrimental for team spirit.

thats how the media works in our country!! Sourav is a comeback man to the team after 10 mnths. No one ever expected him to be back in the team! But he proved he's a fighter and came back to the team and i think for that he deserves some media attention too!! If the Media can run news regarding newcommer DHoni getting a hair cut whose right now nowhere near to sourav status as a cricketer then souravs deserves the media attention!!

Each of our cricketers deserve media attention, but only after making a solid performance, but like you have pointed out, Dhoni gets attention for his hair cut. Sourav scoring few runs in a practice match gets attention. Does n't it destruct their concentration? It is harmful for the players i think more than anyone else.

Yes you are right. Media is just over reacting on Ganguly issue. He has just come back to the Indian team and only one test performance should not be the criteria for reacting so much. There are two more tests left and let him play, if he plays fine in all the three matches then media should react.
