Truthful Tuesday | Inclusion of PIO and OCI is an illusion Indian football should not fall for

Indian football team head coach Igor Stimac recently hinted at including PIO and OCI in the national set-up, as done by other countries. But, if we dissect the matter, minute details will surface that indicate it won’t be beneficial for Indian football in the long run.

Truthful Tuesday | India shouldn't rush back R Ashwin in white-ball cricket yet

Perception. Nothing changes as quickly as this phenomenon. One good knock, a fine spell or a series and boom, old opinions go for a walk in the park. The same Ravichandran Ashwin, who not many even wanted in the SENA Tests, is now the most wanted not only for Tests but across formats.

Truthful Tuesday | Pep Guardiola is an elite offensive coach but he's rarely creator of great offenses

Wherever he goes, Pep Guardiola has created monstrous, league destroying football teams. He did it in Spain, he did it in Germany and then he came to England and did it again. But for all that undeniable managerial talent and ability, the Spaniard has rarely created a great offense.

Truthful Tuesday | Like Dhawan, it is time for India to start looking beyond Mohammed Shami in T20 cricket

On Sunday, team India took one of the biggest selection calls in recent memory by axing Shikhar Dhawan. We look at why, in a few months’ time, they might have to dish out a similar treatment to another experienced campaigner, Mohammed Shami.

Truthful Tuesday | India should overlook Ishant Sharma as first-choice option at home on merit

Having made his 100th Test appearance recently in Ahmedabad, Ishant Sharma has not just marked a stunning career in the Indian whites but also showed his longevity to stun everyone in world cricket. However, with a generation of talent waiting in the sheds, how long more should he feature?

Truthful Tuesday | Great that we have Women’s Cricket back but the arrangement makes it stupid

Let’s address the elephant in the room first. The Women’s international cricket is finally back to India after a gap of a year - much after the Indian men’s team partook in seven jaw-dropping Test matches and six limited-overs games. And hey, a season of full-throttle IPL as well.

Truthful Tuesday | Football’s laws are the problem, not the VAR and definitely not the referees

It would bound to happen. You keep hitting a pinata, it’s bound to break. You keep shaking a bottle of soda and eventually, it’s bound to explode. You keep abusing referees and one day, they’re bound to react. That’s exactly what happened and it culminated in Darren Drysdale reacting.

Truthful Tuesday | Why Jasprit Bumrah shouldn't play Tests in India at all

Even in full-blown wars, the ace is only unveiled in special scenarios. Scenarios which can't be unlocked with anything but the X-factor, the special weapon that holds the audacity to be a differentiator, a differentiator needed when the run-of-the-mill stuff can no longer work.

Truthful Tuesday | False nine has changed football as we know it and not for the better

It started with Nándor Hidegkuti as England were humiliated by a mighty and marvellous Hungarian side at Wembley. The scoreline was written into history and has never ever been forgotten by anyone that has anything to do with football. But it is far from over and it has certainly changed the sport.

Truthful Tuesday | Not hosting Ranji Trophy is not ideal but it is a pragmatic move now

In India, we really have strong opinions on everything. And that, more often than not, drives from an emotional stand-point with a little semblance to practicality. The latest drama of Indian domestic cricket is the perfect example of the phenomenon.
