The Commencement Of This Journey
And 36 Days later, Its Culmination!
Friday, April 16, 2004
I HAD a dream that one day this team will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all teams are created equal." I HAD a dream that one day on the green plains of India everyone will be able to sit down together at the celebratory banquet. I HAD a dream that one day, even India, a desert nation, sweltering with the heat of suppressed emotions, devoid of an away series win, will be transformed into an oasis of competitiveness and victory. I HAD a dream that my peers and the next generation will live in a nation where the cricket team will not be judged by the charisma or potential of the players but by their competitive character. I HAD a dream and that dream was partially realised today! (adapted with due apologies to Martin Luther King)
