9:46 am: Pliss let them win..pliss let them win…pliss let no more wickets fall…pliss…

1:00 pm: Turning out to be an extremely competetive lead..can swing either way..Don’t give RP and Ishant Sharma too much time…so I guess target’s going to be three sixty something….Laxman’s broken his bat!!

Yikes dropped!!! Laxman survives…why couldnt that MS Dhoni have stayed some more?? Or Sachin or Saurav??

Ow no RP’s facing Lee!! …and survived..phew..

I’m sure Tait’s confidence levels are super high now….he was supposed to be the man to watch out for this game…now he’s been ignored for most part of the innings and has been brought on to take on tail enders!!

50 partnership and 400 run lead!! Go RP!! Ow and he’s gone!!! Good work nevertheless!!

Another 2 minutes for Ishant Sharma to come in and go? Aaah..Laxman decides to go instead…

413 to win…sigh…

End of day, the Aussies are 65 for 2…tomorrow we will know!!


Combating troubles Down Under

Much has been written and spoken about the disaster of the SCG test.  Here’s the best suggestion….credit to a colleague of mine to have sparked off the idea..

Do not pull out of the wouldnt be the right thing to do..Instead bring back the Tendulkars and the Gangulys….send in a brand new team:

Himesh Reshammiya (Captain, coz he has enough caps to supply to the entire team)

Bobby Darling (we are not racist, nor are we homophobic or against transgenders, hence we are making a point)

Sanjay Leela Bhansali (He can beat the aussies black and blue)

Arjun Singh (So that he can personally oversee the upliftment of the aborginees and the lower “races” in Australia)

Bal Thackeray (Oh we had to have Marathi representation, didnt we? And who better?? Go Tiger!!)

Johnny Lever (I’m sure he can come up with better insults than monkey..what say?)

Laloo Yadav (er well he had to be there..)

M Karunanidhi (representation from the South, so what if there were many Chennai players ignored before him?)i

Prashant Tamang (yes there was sms voting as well)

Rakhi Sawant (no the voting wasnt rigged this time)

S Sreesanth (he’s the main guy that can manage to irk the aussies with his sledging, plus he’s injured)

I considered including Sidhu..but he’s sooo mad that I think he’d spluter and spit and drown the poor little island nation..

So yeah while the boys are frolicking on those Sydney beaches..send these real men to combat the big bad meanie cry babies…


The media has been abuzz with reports of sections of the crowd at Baroda racially abusing Andrew Symonds…they taunted him with monkey chants and gestures.

It was abuse no doubt…but was it racist?? I really don’t think the crowd at Baroda understood the significance of Symonds’s aborginal origins…my guess is that there is no difference between Gilchrist and Symonds to us Indians…why would I taunt someone for his colour…when I myself am coloured..Symonds is fairer than the average Indian!!

The spectators I guess were plain irked that Symonds was performing so well and that India was getting walloped…No racism involved out here!!
