Not India v Not Lanka.

by Gaurav Sethi

No Dilshan, Jayasuriya, Jayawardene, Murali, Mendis, call that Lanka? No Sachin, call that India? A clever ploy by both teams indeed; rest key players, inject new interest – who in their right mind would watch another India-Lanka ODI anyway.

For starters, they shifted the games to a neutral venue, if you can call Bangladesh that. Then they manufactured dew, to distract from the game itself. The two teams may play each other every alternate day, but how often do they wet their pants like this.

Not just that, play Sreesanth in a one-dayer – tell him it’s ok to appeal with one of those Romantic Love Song videos. Top that arrange a wicket for Bhajji in the first over – “he’s a different kind of bowler when he strikes early” Shastri will tell you. Make sure Shastri is not on commentary when he’s a different kind of bowler.

Of course some things remain the same: Thiranga out. Bhajji takes a minute to wave the Tiranga. But then a surprise, Sehwag brought on to bowl by MSD. So Not India.

NC - ref. my comment on SP's post on the tri series ...this one is worse than a joke...such effing dull stuff !wonder how the poor inds and lankans bear to see each others' faces anymore :-)

Gaurav Sethi said...

Yeah, saw that, no tri series

Gng by the lines our bowlers bowled, they weren't looking at the Lankans.
