7 players and why they didn't hit IPL jackpot

1. Brad Haddin: Teams agreed exposing the impressionable Indian juvenile populace to gloved crooks might adulterate their spiritual make-up and vitiate the values;

2. Philip Hughes: The idea of finding secret team strategies all over Twitter on the match-eve didn't appeal to anyone;

3 & 4. Monty Panesar & Mark Ramprakash: Shelved for a future Indian-origins' Premier League.

5. Shahid Afridi: His impersonation of Statue of Liberty after every dismissal was found neither original nor aesthetic;

6. Vernon Philander: The surname cooked his goose;

7. Sulieman Benn: With Mitchell Johnson and Haddin not in IPL, Benn would have been of limited utility.

Leela, that gives me 1/6, way off the pass mark. You behaved just like my math teacher:)

NC, wow that's 50 percent, my all-time high math score that came in class III I guess. You know what? Even I could visualise Monty Panesar in Prabasi Bhariya Divas!

Som said...

SP, hehe. Now that's not something you can't bet again:)

Poor Little Phil - will he ever live that Twitter post down?

LOL

Som said...

Sid...I doubt, as long as I'm alive and blogging:)

BTW, I like that fellow. Popping up in Mumbai and biting into Tendulkar's lunch:)
