Burning effigy is not the  right answer

Ranchi: Cricket fans in Jharkand burnt Indian cricket captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni's effigy to protest India's early exit from the ICC Twenty world cup.

Around 50 cricket fans, mostly youth, gathered near Siddo Kanhu park and shouted slogans against Dhoni.

Honestly, we can all probably agree that there is something wrong with the Indian Cricket team. But may be its time for us to accept that the state of the Indian Cricket Supporters is worse.

The reaction of Jharkhand cricket fans to Indian captain  Dhoni after India's loss to England smacks of childishness.

Victory and defeat is part of the game, success and failure are two sides of the same coin. When India wins a tournament we elevate our cricketers to the status of god and when they loss we almost treat them as dogs.

World Cup dream ends for India

It is to be remembered that same fans who burned Dhoni's effigy on Monday planned to build temple of Indian captain when the team won the first T20 world cup in 2007.

Cricket players are human and all teams have their ups and downs. It would be better not to go overboard when our team is successful in order to avoid what was reported from Jharkhand.These types of ugly protests shows that we are not yet matured to treat victory and defeat in the same way.

The protests by the so-called fans cricket reflect a dangerous trend in the sporting culture of our country. Every one should come forward and condemn these stupid acts.
