7 reasons why Afridi bit the ball

1. Afridi had exhausted his supply of chewing gum;

2. Someone told him cricket ball is called cherry and being the unsuspecting soul, he took it rather literally;

3. He was conducting some rudimentary research for a scientific paper on 'Edibility of A Cricket Ball';

4. He wanted to get back at teammates who taunted his bowling lacked bite;

5. To convey the message that Pakistan is not a toothless side;

6. He was doing an Adam-biting-the-forbidden-fruit-in-Garden-of-Eden impersonation for a reality show;

7. He had a bet with Stuart Broad that his teeth are stronger than the Englishman's boot nails.

As to the shenanigans of Sunny the

Greatest (yes the Greatest Batsman

graced cricket, now is it not proof

of how different are the treatments

vis a vis Asian players for similar


This happens to be second incident in

a short span of time.

Of course Chris(t) Broad (am not

conduct of the snow whites and would
