Musings of mauled minds

Dented pride? Wounded ego? Tarnished reputation? Well, that's no-brainer. After Murali and Mendis molested them in broad day light, you needed Doosra, the closest you have to a clairvoyant, to find out exactly what passed through the mind of those Indian batsmen who went through the trauma.

Rahul Dravid: Well, it’s never wise to pick up a fight with someone who has been an army gunner till the other day.

Gautam Gambhir: I told Kirsten in the plane that I’m scared of flights.

Sourav Ganguly: Hmm…Dona has got better footwork.

Sachin Tendulkar: I mistook Mendis and thought an LTTE Tiger was lobbing a hand grenade at me.

VVS Laxman: It’s all destiny. Since ‘Ramayana’ days, every Laxman is entitled to setbacks in Lanka.

Virender Sehwag: Boycott was back in the commentary box and I needed to give him fodder for thought.

Dinesh Karthik: Why pretend? My job is to keep the seat warm till Dhoni returns and lays his bums. Why break sweat?

Hilarious, Som. You've captured the voices of GG and RD! The one on VVS was priceless. :) You've made me laugh today! Thank you.

VM, welcome. Doosra honoured to be the clown prince in blogosphere. Hope to make you smile often.

Som said...

Souleberry, yeah. DK was disappointing. Parthiv Patel must be fancying his chances, while Dhoni has no reason to feel insecure. He can take as many sabbaticals as he wishes.

Som said...

Thiru, welcome and keep coming. Hope to keep you entertained.

SP, I have been bowler-biased all along, trying to place the blame on the batsmen.
Nope, actually blolgosphere does not know how I borrowed someone's laptop in Kolkata to post whateever I thought during the journey!

Som said...
