Post Mortems :- Dr. N S Sidhu

Having stayed awake till 430 am to watch India win, I knew the only thing sweeter was to watch Sidhu on one of those news channels, talking about the win. I waited. I was not disappointed.

Here we go, Sidhuisms, fresh of the airwaves :-

On the difference between both Captains :- Dravid is cool as a cucumber, mind as cool as ice. Lara is a rothudu, remember how people used to cry when yu played pithu-garam as youngsters . He is Captain Crybaby. Crying about bad selection and bad pitches. He is making West Indian cricket seem like a jhanda without a danda.

On perceptions of this Indian team before the series :- Arre yaar this is a ‘phus pataka’

On Indian batsmen who perform abroad :- Even a cock crows over his own dungeon. You can only assess greatness on alien lands.

On if’s and buts :- If the partridge had the woodcock’s thighs, it wud be the best bird to ever fly.

On various cricketers who played a part in this match :-

Denesh Ramdin – He did not cave in like a pack of cards

Anil Kumble is quick thru the air, the Jumbo has taken off.

Dravid – Time to change his name from The Wall to The Rock.

And finally .... pure Sidhu :- The greatest room in this world is the room for improvement.

More later !

hi riggs,

1. Sidhu n his wife: When you have a hen laying eggs you shouldn't mind the neighbors

I hope that doesn't hurt your sensitivities.

Hi Qwerts,

I think Sidhu is the one with hurt sensitivities. His sensitivities were hurt by Mrs. Sidhu.

You do know that while some people call them 'unmentionables' some of us call them 'sensitivities'.

This was done, apparently with a stump, on the night Sidhu came back home from the studio, having said 'Wickets are like wives. You have no idea which way they will turn'.

Or was it 'Wives are like wickets. You can run all over them as long as you're not wearing spikes OR if your name is Sachin Tendulkar'.

Yours Commentatorily,

'Gilchrist is a good hooker and the crowd's getting it's money's worth'
