Why BCCI deserves a Padma Bibhishan


When you have a 10:1 cerebral advantage over your opponent, theoretically your win is merely a matter of time and formalities.

Unless one of your siblings responds to the name of Bibhishan, that is.

An average Norwegian was content munching his lutefisk or Kj√łttkaker, depending on his preference, and humming Ja, vi elsker dette landet.

Till one of them, a blighter by the name of Vidkun Quisling, popped up to facilitate the Nazi invasion of his own country.

Siraj-Ud-Daulah had a fair chance in the Battle of Plassey. Before his lieutenant Mir Jafar crossed the floor and hugged Robert Clive, that is.

India's stint as the No. 1 Test team could have been longer. But then BCCI had meticulously cooked their goose and inked just 2 Tests in the next 11 months.

You probably feel like borrowing the 5-iron wielded so deftly by Elin Nordegren and spank the colossal fatheads at BCCI.

A less violent breed, I demand a Padma Bibhishan for Shashank Manohars and Lalit Modis.

Som, there is a report that says BCCI is trying to include some Tests in the forthcoming SA & Australian ODI series.

Som said...

Ottayan, I read Majola saying somewhere that BCCI has agreed to drop 3 Tests from the original schedule since SAfrica has their plate full.

BTW, do you suggest to postpone the Padma award ceremony fort the time being?

Yer...India - South Africa tests have been scrapped off. Great going BCCI! How about a noble prize now?

Som said...

Rishab, indeed that makes BCCI bookies' favourite for this year's Ignoble.

Hold on, so South Africa decide they don't want to play tests on their tour of India and the BCCI is to blame for India not playing enough tests? I'm tempted to take Tiger's Nike Driver and bash in the heads of those who don't get their facts straight.

Som said...

Tagskie, welcome to Doosra and keep popping up:)

Som said...

Dreamy, ignorance is bliss. It solves lot of problems, while creating a few :)

Som said...

Mahek, the tests that was dropped -- and now being reinstated -- wasn't part of FTP that BCCI had earlier agreed to. Even if BCCI had insisted on that, it would have made 4 Tests in 11 months -- inculding 2 against Bangladesh. Not enough surely. So no need to order those Titliest drivers:)
