Why Kohli and not Kumble was retained by the Bangalore Royal Challengers

by Gaurav Sethi

Kumble is shown into Sid Mallaya’s office by a buxom secretary. Seeing her, he coughs the obligatory cough.

Kumble: Hi Siddharth

Sid Mallaya (laughs): You can call me Sid…we’re friends, we know each other….right babes (asking secretary)

Secretary: Eh…

Kumble (briskly): You know I'm the Karnataka State Cricket Association President, and with that comes an added responsibility…just yesterday I was at the stadium in a suit…

SM: It was pretty ill-fitting….

Kumble (ignoring): Eh…Rahul thought it was smart…anyway, now I have to be a certain way, dress a certain way in public

SM: Whatever…

Kumble: So when I play for the Royal Challengers, I will have to wear a suit

SM: No way man…what’re you saying…you’re kidding right

Kumble: I’m very serious. These are not silly games anymore – this is politics. You can’t afford to have the KSCA President running around in some red and gold jump suit

SM (To secretary): Get me Dad… (and to Kumble)…man, next you’ll say, you wanna bowl in a friggin’ head bandage…

Kumble: Yes, people have very fond memories of the bandage…I even got Lara out in that

Virat Kohli breezes into Sid Mallaya’s office

VK: Hey Sid, wasup?

SM: Hey Vir, what will you wear for the IPL…

VK: What? The Bangalore Royal Challenger’s jersey of course.
