5 wonders that await Asif on his release

As Mohammad Asif packs his bag, hugs his new-found friends at the Dubai detention centre and heads for Pakistan, you cannot really rule out a Rip Van Winkle syndrome.

Cricket is no more the game it was when Asif was nabbed in Dubai and here are the five wonders that are bound to make him as hallucinated as he was at the time of his interception.

  1. Kevin Pietersen switching on and off;
  2. Brett Lee’s alternate profession as owner-cum-model for downmarket underwear;
  3. Collingwood brandishing Trion-Z magic bracelets to counter Vettori’s smart-pant voodoo;
  4. Appellate Tribunal decreeing that Shoaib Akhtar would be legally entitled to crack his bat on Asif's thigh in September 2009 and not in a distant 2013;
  5. Sreesanth finally settling into a life without Harbhajan Singh and picking up a fight with hotel staff in Bangalore.

The only thing which awaits him is a ban imposed by ICC.
He will be free to use all the drugs.

sree is clever guy he picked up fight thinking bcci will at least suspend him escaping him from appearing in slap gate sequel...there are lots of hands etching in the team...to wipe out sun cream from his face...

Som said...

Scorpicity... you mean Brett Lee will flash his teeth and sell an Indian toothpaste!

SP, I read somewhere Sree landed in trouble after sending an SMS that borders on blackmail to the hotel manager who duly passed it onto everyone, including BCCI top brass. Sree apparently demanded compensation of USD 70,000, free membership of the club as well as free accommodation to him and his friends for one whole year!
