Kohli, Sania, Saina listed by Forbes, but who's a game changer?

Thu, Feb 25, 2016, 04:29 PM
Forbes has included in its list Virat Kohli, Sania Mirza and Saina Nehwal as promising young leaders and game changers.

Forbes has prepared a list of 300 talented sportsmen in Asia, of whom 56 belong to India. Kohli, Sania and Saina top the list.

Recently, Kohli captained team had won all the Test matches with South Africa. This apart he had earned $11.3 million, Forbes said.

It further said Sania was continuing on a winning note and it described Saina as `Badminton Queen.'

All right, the three are great players and can change the game they are playing. In their respective sport, they may make a bad start and come off good eventually. If this is what Forbes meant, it's ok. There is more money in sports these days, so Kohli making $11.3 million is also fine.

Taken literally, who is a game changer? Game changer is one who does more than play a game, but excels in some other activity with the game as the base. For example, Steve Waugh, former Australian cricketer, worked on two fronts.

Steve Waugh not only played cricket but he also helped the Sisters of Charity in Kolkata organise and give donations. Steve is a game changer.

Pakistan cricket skipper Imran Khan has opened a cancer hospital in memory of his mother.

NT Rama Rao is the epitome of game changing. After retiring from celluloid life, he became Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh hardly in 9 months and formed a party that is still ruling. There is a cancer hopital named after his wife in Hyderabad.

Game changer thus is one who can give a push to something without whom it would be staid.

Game changers Forbes lists play their games, make money and win their games.
