a milstone and an embarrassment after...

shared by straight point on Friday, October 17, 2008

congrats sachin...!! for surpassing yet another milestone...

but...wtf...with fire works...

i don't mind people standing in ovation of great moment...players shaking hands...

but that was embarrassingly f@ckin long...

what if ganguly or sachin lose concentration...?

spare a thoght for the job they have in hand...

no matter what the milestone is...

at 174/4 india is trying to clear the mess...after top order spectacularly ejaculated prematurely...

and we have stoppage of this never ending fireworks...

no wonder we praise personal milestones more keenly than the cause of team...

Update 1:

dada gets there too...congratulations dada!!

but, as per our sources close to dada...he is seriously considering putting PCA to court for the humiliation he had to suffer after reaching the milestone...and singling him out for the rough treatment...

no fire works! not a single one!!

Update 2:
Tendulkar out!! guess who took his wicket?

peter siddle...the debutant... !!

sachin doing everything he can...to float this now popular selection scheme...

while they were at it they should've got an open air bus and driven sachin all acroos punjab. yuvraj, who lives close by, would have joined in too.

yess...you said it better...

maybe they should postpone days play so the ozies can join too...

Naked Cricket said...

yeah sp, i seriously thought about that. but the match refs are so anti india, they would've not taken kindly to that.
but with a bus, even match refs can't do much.

bcci should do something about it next time they meet icc...

Good show by Sachin. Cricinfo tells me 12,000 n.o. up as well. Been a wonderful innings to watch. Thanks Tendy.

Straight Point said...

whit monkey off his chest...he is already showing the glimpse of his old self?

Ottayan said...

Will he score a century today?

Straight Point said...

...will be icing on cake OTT...

Ottayan said...

Disappointing.

Straight Point said...

predictably disappointing...

Jrod said...

Funniest thing i have seen in a long time.

Buzzz said...

Still you got to criticise him, man will we ever learn to be courteous and thankful for the joy he has offered for most of our lives (19 yrs -- 70% of my life)....

so wot if celebs come, so wot if time stops, doesnt he deserve!!!

If a bowler wants to debut in a test match, he should seriously consider debuting against India :)...

vmminerva said...

This crazy stat will be bothering us if not him - the record I think starts as far back on 99-00 with Brett Lee debuting against India. Of late, it's be Monty, White, and Siddle all on debut.

Straight Point said...

i bet you have not seen the last of it... UJ :)

Straight Point said...

Straight Point said...

VM...i don't think it will be bothering him...

though he famously signed the ball 'once in blue moon' to monty...only to get out very next time... :-))
