जबकि वॉर्नर विदाई लेते हैं, वहीं एंडरसन भारत में ट्रेडमिल पर वापसी करते हैं | क्रिकेट में



Akele ek vyakti andhere Manchester aasman ke neeche ek neele daudne wale track par chalte hai. Badal itne gehre hai ki Beautiful South ko bhi rula sakte hai aur ek cotton vest bhi ek jhalak mein bhig gayi hai. Etihad Stadium ke half-prised tuna can ka pichha karte hue. Kuch thake hue floodlights andhere mein kasht kar rahe hai, ekmatra cheeze hai jo is scene ke grey rang ko todne mein safal ho rahi hai, woh hai akela daudne wale ke tez orange trainers aur chamakdar neele knee socks. “Saal ki pehli track session 💪🏃,” caption hai. Richard Hawley background mein gaate hai: “Love you and never be old, then we feel the hope … you leave your body behind you.” Ye gaana chunne ka khaas maksad hai.

Dunia ke doosri taraf, ek aur vyakti – chhota, bhari hui, gora vastra pehne hue – Sydney Cricket Ground ke surya se prakashit maidan se dhire-dhire chal raha hai. Apne hare rang ke helmet par badge ko chumte hue aur doodhwale ki kandhe jaise apne baahe failate hue. Woh hazaaro spactators ke taaliyon ka samarthan lete hai, jisme unke pariwar aur dost bhi shamil hai, jo stadium ke andar unke liye khade ho gaye hai.

Ek purane cricketer ki crease chhodne ke saath hi, dusra taiyyar ho raha hai. 15 saal ke antarrashtriya cricket ke baad, David Warner, 37 saal ki umar mein, apni Test cricket ki career ko khatm kar diya hai. Warner ne December 2011 mein apna Test debut kiya tha, jab (ab 41 saal ke) Jimmy Anderson apne teesre ya chauthe iteration mein the, ek bade dam wale bowler ke roop mein, jo Warner ke aane se pehle hi Australia ke summer mein raaj kar chuke the, 24 wickets lekar aur England ko unki pehli Ashes series jeetane ki taraf lekar gaye the 24 saal ke baad Australia mein … yaani ek (vartaman) “Jimmy” ka panchva bhag.

Warner ke liye, kuch saal tak mahangi Twenty20 franchise tournaments ka intezaar hai, jismein retirement ka samay aane par unhe bhi bharpur paisa mil jayega. Anderson ke liye, ye ek akele daudne wale ke liye aur hai, jiske sharir ko peeche chhodne ke liye ya kam se kam thoda aur samay tak rokne ke liye. Stump ke paas bowling karne ke aur indoor sessions karne ke liye, jiske mindset ki tarah ek hi hai, apne sharir ko multivitamins aur bachpan jaisi haircut ke saath Benjamin Button ki tarah badhate hue. Anderson ke liye, Bharat ka intezaar hai. Sirf saat hafte mein panch Test matches.

Bharat ek aise jagah hai jahaan medium-pace swing bowler ke liye jagah nahi hai, khaas karke 41 saal ke bowler ke liye. Garmi aur pitch ki haddi todne wali prakriti ki wajah se, sabse zyada samay tak khelne wale tez bowler ke bhi pet mein darr paida ho jata hai, woh bhi jinhe tez gati se fayda uthane aur asahaj karne ke liye bharosa kar sakte hai. Lekin Anderson logic ko muh todta hai, uspar ek collagen ki hont jaise muskurahat laata hai aur bina kisi dar ke aage badhta hai. Unhone apni pichhli Bharat yatra par, 2021 mein, jab 40 saal ke hone ke kagar par the, 15.87 ki prabhavshali average ke saath aath wickets liye, teen Test matches mein khelte hue. Lekin Anderson ki itni bhi mehngi bowling ne England ki 3-1 ki series haar ko rok nahi saki.

Bharat mein 13 Test matches mein Anderson ka shandar record hai, jismein unhone 34 wickets 29.32 ki average par liye hai, sirf 183 Test matches ke overall average se teen run zyada. Iske bawajood, woh abhi tak ek badal ke neeche hai, abhi tak gunmetal rang nahi hai lekin urn ki tarah tayyar hai.

Ashes series ke dauran Anderson dheere-dheere kamjor dikhai diye, unhone English pitches ko “Kryptonite” kaha jabki Mark Wood, Chris Woakes aur sabse zyada unke saath ek dashak se jude hue bandana wale Stuart Broad ne kaam kiya aur Australia ko series jeetne se roka. Broad ne bails badle aur kahani ko Oval mein ek joshila aur anokha anjaam tak le gaya lekin Anderson ne apni retirement ki koi baat nahi ki, kehte hai ki Broad ki retirement ki khabar ne unhe aur bhi jyada josh diya hai, chahe unhe ek kathor summer ka samna karna pada ho. Chaar Test matches mein paanch wickets aur – shayad zyada mayne rakhta hai – poore summer mein kisi bhi meaningful movement ko hasil nahi kar paaye, woh bhi wahi English pitches par jo unhone lagbhag do dashak tak acche se istemaal kiye hai.

Anderson, apni ichha se Test cricket khelne ki, apne lambi seva aur anupam seva ke bawajood, khud ko selectors ke haatho par chhod diya hai, jabki ek bhayanak Test series Bharat mein hone wali hai. Broad aur Warner ko haal hi mein unka din mila hai, Cook aur unse pehle bhi kai log. Anderson, abhi ke liye, aage badh raha hai, apne sharir ko peeche chhodte hue, ek baar phir aage badh raha hai, sir jhukaye huye, andhere jama hone ke khilaaf.

Ye ek extract hai Guardian ke saptahik cricket email, The Spin, ka. Isme hamare lekhakon ki vichar aur saptah ke action ki janch hoti hai.
