Life outside Chepauk

Oh, and Pakistan play Sri Lanka in what I last saw was a not so full Gadaffi stadium. Openers went quickly and now they are....they just finished on 293 for 6! Not bad...will check who scored...
It is a practice match for the Final. This is another one of these not really followed or very consequential ODI tournaments...

Meanwhile, it seems Beckham is not as smart as he thought. His self-proclaimed intelligence and sharp thinking has not quite been in the league he presumed. There are calls for his sacking as captain, fining, and general disapproval. He has since apologised, saying he made a mistake ( which he first viewed as evidence of posessing brains). Oh, well.

Yaaar, if u shine the cold light of the logic torch on Walking then it clearly qualifies as dissent.. cause dissent means visible/visual disagreement with a Umps decision... It was for that reason Shewag had to be punished cause it is seen as disrespect to the authority of the UMP... But then I think "respect the UMP" is a huge hogwash... Let them be judged just as the players are judged...

Just as we can understand why people walk, I can also understand why people don't walk.. cause they respect the UMP :)
