The use of the word BATTLE has all got mixed up with the limited English knowledge of the present generation.. This is why it becomes a right royal battle and end up like the ealam war!. These school children do not know the meaning of the word BATTLE and thinks its a WAR and not just a friendly cricket match and therefore the spirit of the came is totally lost. Therefore I advice the media to refrain from using the word BATTLE and just say cricket match because unlike in the good old days these present day crowd do not know English to understand the contect in which it is used as they are all a set of half baked godayas. It is this word BATTLE that triggers all the unnecessary incident we hear about.
