Yes, it’s been over a day and I am still going through the cricket hangover. I won’t go into the result or what might have happened if we did this or that. I just want to share a couple of gems that I overheard in the match screening I went to on March 30th.
When Sehwag was clinically decimating every Umar Gul Delivery, the guy sitting in front of me goes:
“I now get why Indians are winning. They have so many gods to listen to all the prayers, humaray ek Allah mian cannot listen to everyone’s prayers.”
If there ever was a case for not believing, it was one.
The next gem came from an uncle after Wahab Riaz’s five wicket haul:
“Larkey ne apnay jacket pe lagay sab dagh dho diye. ” (I think he was referring to that Mazhar Majeed jacket)
When Hafeez threw his wicket away, a teenage boy swore like a drug dealer from Bronx and said:
“is shot se tau saaf pata lag raha hai ke Misbah ka fan hai”
After Umar akmal’s wicket fell one lady goes:
“Hai Allah, ab Afridi kaheen tension mein bat hi na chaba dalay.”
