A Case of Errupting One's Brain

I'm high.
I galloped over galaxies in the sky
Where Indians were frying Nehra into a braai.

The stars melted into pots of gold,
Bronze statues of Robbie P stood everywhere,
A couple of Steyn ones were also near.

Rainbows came cascading down,
Illegal King Hash became the sun at dawn,
The world was glorious with a gold-tipped crown.

The load was great, my skull grew fissures.
There was kaboom and my brain spat out,
Tidbits of it on the wall.
But for a joy well fought,
A bit of brain less wasn't the end of it all.

(Ok, now I'll go and hide in a corner.)

A re-match in the knockouts beckon...

Hi,

I’m writing on behalf of the Managing Editor of CricketCountry, which is a joint venture portal of the Zee Group and an American media giant. Our cricket vertical has lots of cricketers writing for us, besides established writers. However, we are also giving space for bloggers and others who would like to share their views and/or blog on cricket.

Would you be interested in posting your cartoons/articles on our website? If you do wish to share, kindly let me know. We are not paying fan bloggers for non-exclusive articles, but what we would undoubtedly give them is instant recognition on a big platform alongside big names - something that is not possible as a stand-alone blogger or merely commenting on social media like Facebook and Twitter. Moreover, we intend leverage the written stuff across social media platforms. And that means getting your writings across to much bigger audience and
thus getting new readers to your blog – if you are a blogger.

If we find that any blogger is writing insightfully and is drawing a huge following, we could then commission him/her to write exclusive articles for which they would be paid.

Do let me know your thoughts.

Cheers,

Devarchit Varma

Thanks Leela.
You don't need to hide, I'm always very kind to those of the losing side.. *shows fangs*

Sridh, I can make an entire poem about Nehra and Robbie P, just for you. Should I?

Nope tracer, India will face the Stanis in one of those stages and get knocked out. (I mean, that's what I hope will happen).

Shridhar Jaju said...

No, thank you Sunny... cannot bear an entire poem, at least for the next few days!

@tracer, there won't be a rematch in the Knockouts... simply because the famous 'choke' will this time come in the QFs! ;-)

@shridhar its possible, isn't it? I dont know what all the fuss is about, and why this game should be considered a turning point for them...the point is, SA still has a shallow middle and lower order which will not get them through all the time...Right now, they are depending a lot on Amla, Kallis amd ABD...while I still rate them favorites, I can't help feeling that a cock-up is round the corner..

Boofus Biff might be the only one I'm a lot concerned about. The middle order showed it has some grit and can bat, but true, our other top 3 need to make a nice pack of runs first too often for that to happen.
