the fanciful face of the apocalyptic fallout of societal stupidity Its no accident that the definitive zombie stories of the 21st century movies like 28 Days Later28 Weeks Later and Zack Snyders remake of Dawn of the Dead frame the condition realisticallyas if it were just another pandemic SARS with a twist The result is large-scale urban destructionsituations only a few steps removed from the grainy pictures of street-level violence circulated every day Oftenin these moviesfellow humans are more dangerous than zombiesstabbing each other in the back for spare ammo or a can of beans The zombie zeitgeist is the cultural antibody to the species-threatening crises we find ourselves embroiled in;

that he jotted down his thoughts and feelings regularly in his diary Funnily after a cracking domestic season he highlighted his errors “I was committing myself on the front foot a little too early against left-arm spinners especially to deliveries at half-volley length It needed to be rectified So I wrote it in my diary I usually don’t like to look at the past Every new season is a new challenge My journey as a cricketer is about following a process and it’s essential to learn from the mistakes” Panchal says speaking to this paper on Monday The ongoing Duleep Trophy is his first experience in pink-ball cricket but before coming to the immediate present a bit of close season recap is necessary IPL setback On the face of it not getting an IPL contract after such a fantastic Ranji season was a disappointment But Panchal puts things in perspective “Like the Ranji Trophy and other domestic tournaments the IPL is another platform (for a player) to get into the Indian team Hardik Pandya’s progress is an example; the way his IPL performance took him to the ODIs and then he graduated to Test cricket Any young player would like to play in the IPL But there’s no point in brooding over the lack of opportunity You have to make the other platforms count There’s no point in changing your game either” If the last season saw his rise to prominence this term would be about building on the success “I feel no extra burden this season It’s a clean slate Of course you will have more responsibility and there will be certain expectations but it’s important to start afresh and stay relaxed I’m not putting any pressure on myself” Panchal says Does that mean there’s absolutely no change at all from 2016-17 to this term “No change as a cricketer because the game will always be about doing the basics right Ups and downs will be part of it But it’s important to grow as an individual from one season to the next You pick up the pieces along the way and make a positive use of those in life You gradually become a more well-rounded person” Panchal explains India ‘A’ was a natural progression but he missed the South Africa tour because of dengue Panchal took the setback in his stride and wrote in his diary about how he should have been more careful regarding his health “I didn’t see it as a misfortune I thought I should have been more careful India ‘A’ would have been a good learning experience because more than anything else it’s a step forward in intensity level At every level basics remain the same The level of intensity increases You also face different pressure situations and get toughened as a cricketer But I don’t think about India ‘A’ and/or the senior team My job is to go out there and score runs That’s what I need to focus on” Panchal has been picked to play two four-day matches against the touring New Zealand ‘A’ side later this month Coming back to the Duleep Trophy and pink-ball cricket the opener described it as fascinating “It’s excellent I don’t have any problems in terms of visibility In fact I don’t see any difference between a white Kookaburra and its pink counterpart They are keeping grass on the wicket and the pink ball is holding up pretty well I think the pink ball’s longevity depends on the conditions and also the way batters are playing” For all the latest Sports News download Indian Express App champions Real Madrid host Levante hoping to get back to winning ways after drawing 2-2 with Valencia in their last outing.
