Mixed emotions


சிலர் சிரிப்பார்...சிலர் அழுவார்... நான் அழுதுகொண்டே சிரிக்கின்றேன்!
(For all those specimens who can only speak Tamil: silar siripaar, silar azhuvaar, naan azhudhu konde sirikindren)
(For specimens who can understand only machi macha Tamil: Some people laugh, some people cry, I'm crying while laughing...bwack..horrible translation)
Anyway, this is the song that came into my mind when I saw Saha scoring that last run. Two foreign players, winning a match for the Kolkata team in the 'Indian' premier league. Finally Skipper should be happy. I'm wondering what Bhookha thinks about the win. The young domestic players were ecstatic though...they were jumping up and down..looking at them, one would've thought they were playing for the Munaippa naicker boys ischool against World XI. Well... it is Dada's team, so all said and done, I'm happy for the Knights :-)

Coming to the Super Kings, muahahaha... Balaji and Morkel. I have sooo much to say about them, but the words just don't seem to come. (Does Blogger have a censor that filters cuss words?) Morkel at least half proved he deserved to be called an all-rounder. But Balaji! I know he is the highest wicket taker for CSK but all of us also know what a Kodai vallal he is. And he can't hold the bat. The costliest cheer leader for the super kings is Makhaya Ntini. I don't see the point why they want to keep a South African bowler in the dug out, not giving him even one match. Anyway, Oram and Morkel have been scoring in single digits in almost all the matches, so the team management can as well replace one of these two with Ntini and bring in some useful domestic player like Vidyut or Aniruddha in the playing XI. What say?
