Speaking of which one of my friends Krishna, who is as enthusiastic if not more to watch India play, has a similar sort of record. The 5 matches he has watched at Bangalore, India have lost 4 and 1 has been rained out (correct ain't I?). He has one win under his belt though--the India SA ODI at Wankhede last November.
We had this discussion on our newsgroups about a year back, and here's is what one of the profs had to say--
One of the most interesting discussions in a while. One thing seems to be clear. Keep jha_nikhil and krishnar away from stadiums, perhaps even away from the TV during matches. I read about Infosys Narayanamurthy or some such biggie also suffers from the same syndrome or impact or something on India's fortunes, and this was just from watching the matches on TV. I say we take no chances in the coming 1 dayers. Keep any suspect guys out.
A year on, and things don't seem to have changed much. I thought we would cancel each other's misfortune out if we went to the match together. Needless to say, it has backfired. And how!
What do I have to do to watch India win?
