Mango after Tendulkar, Coriander after Yuvi?

Who says Tendulkars don’t grow on trees?

Thanks to a Lucknow farmer, Tendulkars will not only grow on trees but can also be sliced, juiced and even pickled without inviting homicide charges!

Spending long hours under a scorching Sun can do strange things to farmers and Doosra here puts together a list of 7 cricketers who run the immediate risk of rendering their names to certain floras à la Tendulkar.

Really Inspiring thought Som!

Lalit Modi: Karela [He is so bitter these days!]

Ishant Sharma: Snake Gourd; Length does matter !

Virendar Sehwag: Cherry; Most of the times, even before you have started to taste it, it is over!

Gautham Gambhir: Chillies; Without them Indian Curry is 'Ordinary'. A little more than needed, we know it starts 'Talking'!

Graham Onions: Onions; Ask South Africans. Even the mention makes them feel pungent !

Andrew Symonds - Grapes (add a bit of alcohol for amazing results)

Ryan Harris - Capsicum (Noone outside of Australia actually knows who he is)

How about...
Ashish Nehra for 'Bhindi'? Tasty and damn good vegetable, but breaks too quickly and then remains stuck for ages :-)

Som said...

Govind, not to mention how slippery! Well done!

Wonderful, including Govind Raj's.

Piyush Chawla - Musca domestica of Kingdom Animalia always hovering around and which you swat away with a quick flick of the wrist.
