Yusuf-erman!


As mild-mannered as Clarke Kent, as lethal as Kent’s more famous persona!

Y would be the man his wise captain would send to rescue his girl friend and Y would return with the girl unscathed.

Like Superman, Y’s got flight, when he’s bowling. Like Superman, he’s vulnerable only to magic but then Y has the chief sorcerer on his side, as his captain!

Y has got x-ray vision and can see through a bowler’s mind, worse than being seen through garments.

His telescopic view tells him the bowler’s grip. The super-speed of the wood he wields can launch any hunk of leather in an orbit somewhere in the solar system.

Witnesses vouch, at times he stays static in the crease and his sheer will power does it for him!

RP Singh rolled up his jersey to flash his ugly hairy chest. Had Y done so, nobody would have missed a stylized Y shield on his chest.

He can walk on water, split sea and halve an atom. Possibly he can usher us out of recession too.

Superman is passé. Hail Yusuf-er Man.

Even better, he doesn’t wear his undies outside!

Yes, but will he blend?

Also "RP Singh rolled up his jersey to flash his ugly hairy chest. Had Y done so, nobody would have missed a stylized Y shield on his chest."...

...so are you saying he's a Zombie that went through an autopsy?

Som said...

Amy, I'm sure he has!

Som said...

SP, you suggest Y is the Nokiaman? That's food for some more thought.

Som said...

Ankit, I've lost bit of my mind ni the IPL onslaught although:)

Som said...

SV, high time we had a comic strip on him, no?

Som said...

Achettup, YP is just out of the world. Highly possible he is actually the Last Son of Krypton.

pseudo intellectual said...

can KKR hijack him?
(an even more pertinent question, would it help? :P)

Naked Cricket said...

Over the last year i've seem YP fall to plenty of first ball, 2nd ball and 3rd ball ducks.

when playing for india he's clark c*nt, and when he turns up for RR he's your Yusuferman.

Either way you suffer man.

Q said...

Playing for India is his Kryptonite I guess.

Som said...

Titli, I'm afraid YP would lose his mojo once he steps inside the KKR camp. There is something in the air they breathe.

Som said...

NC, that's below the belt! Still can't help but admire you, man!

Som said...

Q, I'm willing to be little more patient with YP in Team India.
