Cricket has been known as the Gentleman’s Game and we have also seen a lot of gentlemen playing the game. The players who leave the ground before the umpire gives them out as they know and believe they are out, the players who do not argue or use foul language for the opposition and instead reply to them with the bat and ball, the players who we see as role models. But can all the players be of the same kind? Can we expect everyone to be a gentleman?
In the last cricketing phase, we have seen players like Rahul Dravid, Adam Gilchrist, Michael Hussey, Sachin Tendulkar and more who had all the traits of a gentleman. But there are players who cannot behave in the same manner as those players did. There is a generation gap, and the people of this new generation are different.
Even in this lot, we find people who are gentlemen but we expect everyone to be like that. Is it that easy to change someone’s nature? If they cannot hide their aggression that does not mean they are not gentlemen. Yes, if they are exceeding the limit by using language that should not be used then that is bad but just for the aggression, you cannot judge them.
You idolize your father but you cannot imbibe all the qualities of him, can you tell the reason? The reason is that you are born with a different mindset and you cannot become something you are not. You should always try to be a better person, and learn from the people who are idolized but everything that you do is not wrong. The world is changing, and we are changing with it and that is not our fault.
