Sports versus Cricket in India


India beat Pakistan 4-2 in the Asia Cup finals. Hockey India offered a prize money of Rs.25000/- to each member of the team. However, they rejected the prize money claiming it was too small compared to the achievement and called it step-motherly behavior towards the team and the sport.

I think what the Indian Hockey team did is correct.Other sports should do the same.Most importantly,cricketers should reject their heavy prize money until the Government and the corporates stop this step motherly behavior towards other sports in India. It sometimes surprises me how cricketers, as sportsmen,haven’t already done this.
