Phrases reloaded!!

'Phrases' (my earlier blog) was one of the experiments that I always wanted to try out.They say "never change a winning team(till it loses)",so me will take a chance again.


1)Sunil Gavaskar-- Partiality is my motto in life..Tendulkar rocks!!
2)Ravi Shastri-- Show me the money,babeh..
3)Sachin Tendulkar(SRT)--Legend..Drop me for the finals of each tournament,I never play when my team needs me.
4)Sourav Ganguly-- Great leader,impartial..Plays to the gallery and is a great actor too.. :)
5)Rahul Dravid--Probably India's greatest batsman ever. I can't captain for nuts..Who was supposed to bowl the 31st over Mr.Chappell,tel me fast.. And yes he is way better than SRT..
6)Ajit Agarkar--Definition of liability..Dont waste a bullet on him.
7)Harbhajan Singh--These days the only flight in my vocabulary is Cathay Pacific,British Airways and Lufthansa..Flighting the ball anyone??
8)Anil Kumble-- India's greatest test match bowler..Has a circle named after him on the distinguished MG Road in that great land..What else does one want?? Huh..
9)Ricky Ponting--I am sick and tired of winning world cups. But I will win 1 more..
10)Muttaih Muralitharan--Chucker..Great chucker by the way..
11)Shane Warne--The game's greatest slow bowler ever.
12)Brian Lara--More talented than SRT..Better?? NO..Not as consistent..Finals excluded :)
13)Greg Chappell-- Great as a player..Horrible as coach...Disgusting psychopath with priorities in the wrong place.. Sucked even as coach of South Australia..
14)Shahid Afridi-- If he is 27,Pakistan is bigger than India, in size..
15)Maninder Singh--Now I know why u were always hyper active..Cocaine,Ganja et al huh??
16)Bishan Singh Bedi-- I dont care a rat's a%# on what u have to say on people and cricket...U are a disgusting,arrogant,filthy moron..


1)Pete Sampras-- Greatest player I have ever seen though he wasn't exactly a genius on clay..Fought vs amazing contemporaries..It was genius vs men not genius vs the boys as in (2)
2)Roger Federer-- More talented than pete..But not better..Huffs and puffs in a five setter cos he hasnt seen many against these children..
3)Andre Agassi-- Superb player..Was born in the Sampras era..Despite his bravura feats wil always be Mr Steffi Graf and that's sheerly out of respect for Steffi..

5)Richard Williams(their dad)--Nut case..
6)Maria Sharapova--Oomph and substance..Package deal..
7)Paes-Bhupathi--A potentially great combination that went awfully awry..Shame that egos took precedence over country..Indian sport's darkest chapter..


1)Harsha Bhogle-- Great knowledge..Yours truly owes a lot to one of his articles in the Sportstar in April 1998..Awe inspiring writer...
2)Charu Sharma-- Super TV person..Wil be unabashed in praise of this chap..But one suggestion.."Be bold da..We know u wanna flirt with Mandira".. :)
3)Mandira Bedi--Actual cricketing lingo from a lady is truly refreshing..Has come a long way looks wise from the gawky young lady in DDLJ..
4)Ruby Bhatia-- Is my make up ok?? By the way who is the captain of this team??
5)Kris Srikkanth--Macha speak in tamil..I can understand..

3)SM Krishna- Bangalore..
4)APJ Abdul Kalam--Finally someone whom we can(or wil it be could??) call President..Hats off Kalam sahab.
5)Jawaharlal Nehru--Flirt..Actually a lot more than that..Lady Mountbatten anyone??Unfortunately his name is the second that pops up when we talk abt freedom fighters..Gandhi,Nehru blah blah...Bhagat Singh,Patel,Tilak,Azad anyone??
6)MGR,Rajiv Gandhi-- A disgrace to the coveted Bharat Ratna..Puhleezzz..Gimme a break...
7)NTR-- 2 rupees a kilo rice mythologically...
8)Sardar Patel--India's nearly,very nearly man..Might have been the boost we needed early on..
9)MK Gandhi--Epitome of simple living..Is he a mahatma?? Thats debatable.
10)Bhagat Singh-- Forgotten hero..A martyr in the truest sense of the word.. I salute the man..
11)Toady,Sycophant,Servile flatterer,Boot licker--Rajiv Shukla..

Will keep options open for the third part of the trilogy..Cheers :)

As I started thinking and pondering and wondering abt the topic for my next blog,got a gut feel that I should try something entirely different,instead of the routine run of the mill articles that people churn out day in and day out and expect people to comment.This one might fall flat on the face or hit the jackpot..I am prepared to gamble this time.. :)
