Satire Saturday | Johnny Lever Award for Joke of the Decade goes to ICC

It is New Year already and a new decade too. Well, that, of course, depends on how you calculate the decade - Whether it is 0 to 9 or 1 to 10, but the fact remains that it is 2021. You expect the world to make a little more sense and get us out of the tragicomedy.

SportsCafe’s best match of the year

2020 was really a strange year for all of us - a year that gave us some of the toughest moments in life yet told us to stand up and walk again. Sport, in the process, forced its way back and became the light of hope to carry on, making us forget the bigger problems in place.

Satire Saturday | Captain Kohli is right, there's nothing alarming in Adelaide's 36 as Indian cricket transcends all

Overreaction Monday | BCCI's mid-night incompetence and South Africa losing the plot

It is that time of the week when we decide to sit on our perspective haunches to filter out the good opinions and challenge the wrongs (well, we can’t be neutral surely). Bursting the myth is fun and it is even more so when the experts land some unfathomable comments for the sake of it.
