rahul dravid: the saviour of youngsters...

shared by straight point on Thursday, October 15, 2009

or shall i say their short pitch problems...

our five wise men led ably by shrikanth the ‘cheeka’ who was known for his attacking batting came up with the idea to take the bull by its horns... so he called dravid back to save india from blushes against the perceived threat of short pitch bowling weapon that cricket world threatened to unleash on our youngsters...

must say dravid did his job the way only he could have done... the bowlers around world were so frightened to see him in team india that they forgot to use the weapon which was invented and marked for our youngsters only... the proof is evident by the fact that there was not even a single casualty of short pitch bowling since dravid returned...

what dravid did in these few odis... gary kirsten couldn't even manage to do in spite of being with team india for so long... so well done dravid!

but now that the age old short pitch bowling nemesis of our youngsters has been laid deep down in grave for never to surface again in future... the five wise men have asked dravid to take well deserved 'rest'...

youngsters of india can't thank him enough coz he came like a breath of fresh air that provided much needed oxygen to their sagging... ailing careers... they can breathe easy now... that the demon has been laid forever... for good...

hail five wise men! hail dravid!

take a bow!!

Sarcastic , but true.

Rather than depending on a player who can serve a yera or two; on the pretext that youngsters are not equipped to handle shot deliveries, is akin to saying, only Americans can be entrepreneurs. If something is absent, let the youngsters master it, or learn to survive it.
In addition, if youngsters have to play in WC 2011, then why not give the skipper a young squad now ,then four months before the event.

Enjoyed reading the write-up.

Cheeka is no different than the set of jokers Jimmy had called famously 20 years back.

And who is back ? Munafa and Jadeja. Ridiculous.

rs said...

He should never been recalled to begin with as this was bound to happen (making us feel bad for RD). It was very short sighted.

Leela said...

I agree with rs; RD shd have never been called back.

rs, leela...

more than short sigtedness from our five wise men i think it was from dravid... who could not see the futility of the move and rise above the situation...

i had lots of expectations from dravid that he will call the bluff and announce his withdrawal from the selection once he was names in probables... but alas he did and allowed his name to get muddles in this way...

perhaps he wanted to prolong his ipl career...
