I came across a news article about Kris Srikanth which gets a monthly traffic of 130/m.
I became curious as to find what would have made this article so special that it fetches a good traffic. I used the tools available to find the keywords used and I was surprised.
There were no special keywords but the player’s name ‘Shrikanth’ ‘Krishnamachary’ has made this article special. The article was about Krishnamachary Srikanth’ 1983 experience.
We know his entertaining & dashing batting style. But, what’s great about him was his commentary style that nobody can immitate.
He did not become a sports article writer or a sports expert when he started playing. He traveled a lot before he became a sports expert. To be an expert in any field travelling certainly helps.
The playing conditions and the ground conditions are not the same as compared to 30-40 years before.
Stadiums today are built in such a way that it protects the player from getting direct exposure to sun. This gives the team selectors to think less about the batsmen or bowler’s batting style.
Earlier time left-handed players and right-handed players were having advantage or disadvantage over their counterparts as Sun light and other playing conditions played a important role in team selection.
Even today also the left handed players are called ‘Southpaw’, the term used in Baseball.
I wouldn’t have become so interested in this word if I had just found this word in any media library Movie label. A movie based on a Boxer is named Southpaw. But I do not show much interest in Boxing.
What made me interested in finding the origin of this word was lot of left-handed players are given preference.
I will show you what I have found about the origin of this word.
Very interesting. Hope you too have liked this blog.
