move on sachin... stuart broad is here...

shared by straight point on Monday, August 09, 2010



although sachin is crowned the (unofficial) god of cricket... but we are not yet convinced...

unlike stuart broad... we have never seen sachin given the god like status...

stuart broad, of all players, has unlimited access to umpires to quiz them as and when he desires... allowed to show frustration whereas others are booked for dissents trying to ape him by showing similar 'frustration'... he has the power to stop the ball at play with his spiked shoes... and unlike lesser mortals... he does not need to appeal to take the wicket...

and they still call sachin the god of cricket...

Still haven't had time to watch the highlights, shame he got only fined half of the match fee.
Back in my day he would have got a smack on the cheeks >.<

Blogrolled you ;)

Cheers,
Wes

Pan,

Most English players get off with a fine when they should be banned.

Obvously, there is no racism involved.

Aha! There are advantages of being born to Broad, perhaps. ;)

My cable tv woes are preventing me from watching any other test matches (apart from ones India plays). Dang it!

straight point said...

true that ott... but broad has exceeded and envisaged even english players :)

straight point said...

pity you vm... what for you follow cricket if you can't see the cricket god in flesh and blood...?

vmminerva said...

@SP, esp true of England. There's always something interesting happening there. Be it jellygate or whatever-Colligwood-threw-on0-the-pitch gate. ;)

straight point said...

aha... you seems to know what you are missing... :)

hahaha. I love the picture compilation. But SP, Barbie has given us so many reasons to dislike an Englishman and so much material to write about...how can we ask him to behave?

straight point said...

purna... where did i ask him to behave...?

i just said with these traits its wrong to call sachin the god of cricket ;)

greyblazer said...

Ha ha Broad the satan of cricket and Tendulkar the god.

straight point said...

obviously i don't agree with you GB... :)

Megha said...

how about Chris Broad being the God the cricket...and Barbie (thanks Purna) being The Son of God

straight point said...

its a nice suggestion megha... gods do do things invisibly... (like sr. broad) :)
