7 reasons why Dhoni has applied for a gun

1. Dhoni realises World Cup is a bagatelle, a mere trinket in comparison to Olympic medal. And by the time cricket returns to Olympics, Dhoni won’t be wielding willow but walking stick. Bindra (not IS, but Abhinav) has shown the way in Beijing and MSD wants to follow in his footsteps.

2. MSD knows how fickle lady love can be. A gun would pre-empt love triangle, quadrangle and similar headaches of different geometric proportions.

3. Let’s admit it, can't really trust Yuvi. Losing captaincy still hurts Yuv'nor and you never know when dormant ambition finds a violent manifestation.

4. To silent Krish Srikkanth. Selection meeting sucks and eardrum hurts. No more allowing Srikkanth to holler into his eardrum. Putting the gun on his mouth should do the trick. (It, however, doesn’t sound foolproof. Knowing Cheeka, he might chew and spit out the gun and then wax eloquent how ‘Habsolutely Tasty’ it was.)

5. To shoot the ‘leaking’ selector: Yashpal Sharma or Raja Venkat?

6. To shoot the messenger i.e. the reporter who got the ‘leak’.

7. To make Munaf Patel bat in the nets.

Hey Som,

MSD might have also used his gun application to bag his first Bollywood appearance with John Abraham.

Anonymous, I didn't know MSD's sms to Bips landed on John's cell and hence MSD needs the gun.

Good point SP..

SOM: THank GOD the selection committee is headed by Cheeka. Imagine if it was headed by Sherry, MSD would have to apply for an AK47 for countering the 'Oye Guru' chants.

8. MSD enjoyed dancing to "main hoon Don" with SRK on stage at the Sahara event that he wanted one of his own.

SP, Sachin would say, "Ai la, I have no problem skip."

Som said...

ANONY, mankind is yet to discover a silencer for Sherry.

Q, I think he likes his gun-wielding image. And now even the seniors would have little choice but to dance to his tune.
