Hats off to Sehwag. Caps on to Viru.

Look over your shoulder, it’s Sehwag.

Not in the flesh, but in the pulp.

Sehwag has made every Delhi paper I’ve seen today.

It’s not his birthday. If it were, you’d have pics of Yuvraj wishing him.

It’s not Ishant’s 20th. If it were, you’d have Sehwag giving him cake shots.

Nor is it about Sehwag’s recent cakewalk in cricket. He prefers not to go there.

There’s some general health talk, stuff on Symonds that is.

And of course the, I hate to say it, that repugnant term, so I’ll say something else instead –there’s a lot about the famous four. That feels better, fab in fact.

But the hook isn’t the famous four either. See how it becomes a buzz word.

The hook is Sehwag’s future stars: Suresh Raina, Manoj Tiwari, Virat Kohli.

Great, two guys from Delhi. But why leave Gautam Gambhir, Amit Mishra, Shikhar Dhawan, Glenn McGrath…hell, if they’re the best going, why not say it like it is? If KP can play for England, then Pigeon should fly to India.

And talking of flying, why not talk super heroes. They have costumes, right? And Sehwag has one now – he wears a cap. Day, night, asleep, awake, outdoors, indoors, he has his cap on. Plus a shower cap in the bath.

Viru - you may not be the famous four, but you are the fab one.

On Bored Cricket Crazy Indians' first month Bir’day we wish you, like we wish ourselves – Many girlfriends to you. And of course, many boyfriends too! We are a mixed up bunch after all.

very ironic but true... :)

minor correction here he referred to raina, tiwari and kohli as future of middle over...

hmmm...what about certain badri sehwag?

one first 'monsary'...
may all your GF's live happy with their BF's... :)

sp - think he's being honest there, he doesn't see badri.
we'd like to see badri there coz he deserves it, but sehwag knows how it works - badri may never be a star player.

straight point said... (& he) may be right...
he airs his opinions in very simple but no uncertain terms...

Mixed bunch?

straight point said...

may be coz of VM?...i am not sure though...OTT

Gaurav Sethi said...

ott - mixed up seemed more fun.
sp - yeah

Viswanathan said...

VMM is a she?

I always took her to be he.

No wonder, we are a mixed bunch.

The transgender, bestial & other sundry lobbies feel neglected!!! Sehwag is going to do a Himesh Reshamiya pretty soon & you can look forward to seeing him all 'woven' up in the near future. A future in the movies is then assured where he can play his 'un'natural game!
