7 cricketers on Osama bin Laden’s death

1. Sachin Tendulkar: I have a strong stance on this issue. I strongly feel Osama’s death is either good or bad for us. It just can’t be anything else even though we should not rule out other possibilities. If you ask me, I think it’s essentially a relative subject and so Osama’s relatives can better answer it. Osama was apparently staying in a stone hut in Tora Bora. When people throw stone at you, you turn them into milestone. Instead, Osama turned it into a stone hut and I think that tells everything;

2. Rahul Dravid: Who died isn’t important here. One should not think about individuals, team always comes first. What’s important here is a death has taken place which means the global population has just shrunk and the air available for human consumption will be relatively higher. Besides, I think it would allow batsmen to concentrate better. I remember I was batting against Sachin’s son in Mumbai when the Americans were bombing Afghanistan and it greatly affected my concentration. The only time I had a similar problem was in Sydney when a whale rather loudly exhaled in the adjacent Tasman Sea just when I was taking guard;

3. Shahid Afridi: I’m happy like nobody’s business. When I speaked that Indians not having big hearts and we having, people moleculed me…or is it ridiculed? Whoever…Now see which country gave Laden shelter? I feel…I feel… vindictive…the media will now eat dumbbell pie;

4. Anil Kumble: I see beyond Osama’s death and what stirs me is the inequality of the contest. The US Military and the Al Qaeda were fighting and I’m sorry to say only one team was fighting in the true spirit. Our Bangalore Royal Challengers owner Vijay Mallya has naturally taken interest and promised to reduce the spirit deficit;

5. Sourav Ganguly: I’m really aghast. I think Obama is selling us dummy. I’ve been tipping them that bin Laden was masquerading as Greg Chappell but they did not listen. I’m not convinced that bin Laden is dead;

6. Shoaib Akhtar: Dude, America is not like Pakistan. America is in America and unlike Pakistan, there people don’t celebrate when their presidents die. USA losing president like Osama is like Pakistan losing me;

7. Shane Warne: Heard the guy was living with his youngest wife. Got her number mate?

Well ofcourse you can say that Osama is dead. I have been saying Pakistan should stop irritating their allies against terror and start irritating terrorists so in that way I am happy with this performance

Poonam said...

hehehehehehehehehehe!!!!!!!!!1
can't stop laughing... too good sir!!

Som said...

Raj, so you think Pakistan should reset focus but remain an irritating country?

Som said...

Poonam, thank you :)

satrajit said...

warne's comment has to be the best!

Govind Raj said...

Haha !

So true for Warne :-)

And Som, since you stick to 7, let me finish the story; well of course with your permission.

The most important man in World Cricket today - the OBAMA of Cricket !

Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Well of course, it is important to keep fighting. It is not possible for us to decide if anyone was good or bad. He fought for his cause till the last ball. He has done that consistently for over 30 years. That is what makes him special.

So this victory is hard earned especially a lot of hard work has gone into it. Even though we didn't possess good fielding, everyone has put in the best efforts. So we all should be happy it is all over !

Som said...

Satrajit, I just admire the man!

Som said...

Govind, that Praveen Kumar gem was in my mind too but PK did not make the Doosra 7 cut :)

Lou said...

Ha,ha, ha. Ripper.

Som said...

Lou, welcome to Doosra :)

pummy said...

did not undersand a single thing

Som said...

Pummy, your brutal honesty stuns me. Trust me, neither did I!

Govind Raj said...

Som, you got it all wrong. Pummy didn't mean it about the post. It was about Subhendu's flowers business.

Everyone who went through the post have understood it except you. Even Subhendu understood buddy !

Som said...

Govind, Subhendus make me feel as if I'm sitting in a garden, surrounded by Flower that is not preceded by an Andy or a Graeme :)

Titli :) said...

Warne's gem was the perfect finish! :D
why do you get so much flowers-related spam? is there a hidden message here that's escaping us? :O

Som said...

Titli, trust me I'm equally clueless. Just can't convince this guys that this is a simple cricket blog and not Elvis Presley's grave that they would come and offer flower!

thinking dysentry said...

i ws jst wondering, u kno, it's humourous ofcourse bt that's how these cricketers talk in their interviews.... well thought of sir... :)

Som said...

The miniature version of the original gives the pleasure of having the original, even to some extent. This is very much true for the vehicles, because kids are no lesser fans of the noted vehicle models than an adult. Branded, super fast bikes, fashionable cars constitute a major part of their fantasies. A trip to www.righttoys.in/products.asp?brand=139 will let the visitor satisfy them all.

Given the notice period, in practice the directors normally sound out shareholders before convening the meeting as they may seek a short notice meeting providing they can obtain appropriate consent..
