    ...This is about the twists and turns of 2016, a series of actions — strictly talking on-field, and not boardroom or courtroom drama — that left several baffled, many disheveled and steered Indian cricket to utter chaos. No matter how much ICC wants it to believe that 2016 was Ashwin’s year, the average fan on the stands would want to write Virat Kohli on the calendar.

And that’s massive. Likewise, just wondering if a befikre Virat Kohli and his team — on a hot unbeaten 18-Test streak that has dwarfed players of Himalayan reputations — sashaying the same I-give-a-damn kinda carefree attitude, sporting facial hair with panache and punching every opponent on their face — be hailed as the golden generation? Just like The Originals of this millennium; or are they even better than their predecessors? ...
