Awards Now

Awards are being announced each hour since the team won the World Cup. Apart from the hefty cash prize by the ICC prizes are pouring in from all the corners of India.

  • My state government (Haryana) has been the most generous announcing 21 Lakhs for Joginder Sharma
  • Delhi lads Gambhir and Sehwag will be given 5 Lakhs each by Delhi Government
  • RP Singh 10 Lakhs UP Government
  • Sreesant 5 Lakhs
  • Agarkar and Rohit Sharma 10 Lakhs each
  • Uthappa 5 Lakhs
  • Dhoni has been awarded Jharkhand Ratna by his state government

Gujarat CM has not offered any congratulations and not announced any awards because the Pathan brothers are Muslims and his hindu vote bank might be affected in the coming elections.
Tamil Nadu government is also quite because they are busy in launching their channel and agitating against the sethu issue.

Now BCCI has also opened its coffers 2 million dollars for the team and One crore for Yuvraj and a sports car promised by vice president Lalit Modi.

You deserve all this but be generous and give some to Misbah who gave you the cup in the last moment :)

rediff, timesofindia, ndtv, ibnlive...are thr any reasons to visit PenTheGame.

Write ur heart out...don't make it a news channel...hope we make better use of comments here rather than post (unless thr is one internal motive to increase number of posts before we apply for this yr "Best Sports Blog").

Hope we could have flooded such entries even when India was ousted in Fifty50 WC in West Indies.
