Plundering Thunder

Haven’t watched a single 20/20 game yet on TV. But it seems like this version is here to stay. Like many purists recreantly resenting this form of cricket, I had to sit in the corner and observe quietly. The recent world cup has changed it all. I even know who Allen Stanford is and why he is like Kerry Packer. He may not gain all the credits that Kerry Packer did for his rebellious colored clothing and white-ball cricket invention, nevertheless a 12-ball fifty could only be possible because of the 20-20 version.

Who is Broad? I had not known him till yesterday. The 19 year old lad got to bowl the 19th over of the inning which he sinfully will regret forever in his career. I want to watch the Yuvraj onslaught in youtube soon. Plundered by the strong shouldered vice-captain, the white ball got dithered beyond the ropes for six consecutive times. Mercy on the bowlers!


Besides fantasizing about being a Peter Gibbons at least for a couple of days at my work, I think I have a long way to go to realize some of the other fantasies. But like any ambitious man out there, I will get there!
