If someone else had made 175

by Naked Cricket

Jatman: Reaches 175 in 27.2 overs, after which India collapses in 5.4 overs and loses by 107 runs. His 175 is criticized after Jatman holds out in an attempt to smash part timer Voges into the Bay of Bengal.

Gambhir: Reaches 175 after long chats, pats, fondles from Jatman. Also, the game is played one year ago when GG was in the form of his life.

Yuvraj: After much abuse from all the Aussies including the 12th man, Yuvi hits the next 4.5 overs for 6s. The 175th run happens by accident – in an attempt to hit his 30th consecutive six, Yuvi is dropped on the boundary. He celebrates abusing everyone including the 12th man, and the 40,000 spectators.

Raina: Dropped no less than half a dozen times doesn’t deter Raina from smashing every ball to midwicket. By the time he reaches 175, no less than 10 fielders (including the keeper) patrol the midwicket boundary.

MSD: Comes in at No. 3 after a bustling start. During the innings his hair grows, mojo returns, and the team resembles his T20 youth brigade. His 175 runs break a record number of bats, ad hoardings, and is declared ‘an ugly yet compelling innings’ by pundits.

Jadeja: Survives the most run-out attempts and third umpire referrals by any batsman in the annals of one-day cricket. The bulk of his 175 runs are made in a partnership with soulmate, Praveen Kumar.

Bhajji: After a rotten day with the ball, Bhaj stakes his claim as a batsman, keeping the allrounder tag intact. Makes a spirited 175 after the bowlers bowl a record number of full tosses wide outside off. Also appears that Watson bowled 100% of his bowling quota to Bhaj.

Praveen Kumar: Comes in when India have nothing to lose except three wickets. Partners Bhajji, Jadeja to a memorable innings during which his eyes grow bigger and bigger.

That’s 8 batsmen who scored 175. Take Sachin and you have 9. Next time, when the Indians take a five for. For what, you ask – for kicks, what else.

Very nicely imagined and written NC.

Wow ! Yuvi abusing 40,000 spectators and returning was real funny :)

Thanks Sujan, and you know that's the only way Yuvi knows how to celebrate!

What makes you think Nehra or Munaf can't score 175?

straight point said...

this inspired mishra to put a bat in hand instead... and become allergic with ball...

Naked Cricket said...

Purna, that's very telling. Thanks.

Mahek, they can, but they won't stop at 175, make a double if they get there.

EXCELLENT!!! Incredibly funny! May I also add :

Sreesanth: Breathes fire with his incredibly large nostrils and intimidates the bowlers to reach 50. Monkey dances for his next 50. Gets slapped by Bhajji on reaching his 100, and makes the next 50 on pure bollywood emotions and tears alone. Hits the next ball to long on and runs around the field "hawk" style, instead of 2. Out of sheer happiness, the umpires award him 25 extra runs.
