cutting the cord on mubarak

Is Jehan Mubarak the luckiest bastard ever to play cricket for Sri Lanka?

Proverbial butt of all jokes, Richie J or Chuubarak (translated to ‘in need of a piss’) as he is fondly known in the online Sri Lankan cricketing community, has led a charmed life unlike no other in the national team.

What warrants such treatment you ask.

(At this point I refrain from using reference to his Dads deep pockets, but by just saying that I have implicated that it has something to do with his selection, We are clever like that)

It sure as hell aint cuz of his fantastical record.

Averages 15 in 10 tests and 22 in 32 ODIs.

What the fuck is our obsession with mediocre middle order batsman.

We have had to deal with Dilshan and Silva, all talented, but never delivering consistently.

Add Chuubarak to that list.

No, make him the king of useless middle order batsmen.

What really pisses the fuck out of this whole story is that we have better batsmen than him.

Like who? How about we start with Thilina Kandamby.

Better averages in every format.

More 100s. In less games.

Has 2 paragraphs in his cricinfo profile compared to Chuubaraks 1.

Is younger.

Led Sri Lanka A to a series win in South Africa, that has never been done by any Sri Lankan captain, in an A team or otherwise.

He was 2nd on the list for most runs last year in Tier A.

Mubaraks not even on the list.

Too harsh? Fuck that. Thilina deserves a place in the team and it should be Mubarak who is dropped.

Jehan, I backed you when you came on the scene, but its time to cut the cord.

    Actually, a lot of cricketers I have spoken to (including Brendan Kuruppu) actually think Mubarak is one of the most versatile and technically perfect batsmen we have. He is also one of the most intelligent, and is capable of leading.

    lame and factually incorrect to the most part of it.

    here’s why –
    “Has 2 paragraphs in his cricinfo profile compared to Chuubaraks 1”
    A great yardstick to judge a cricketer inded! lol

    “Is younger”
    by one year. lol again

    “Led Sri Lanka A to a series win in South Africa, that has never been done by any Sri Lankan captain, in an A team or otherwise.”
    If you have the means, go and check what happenned during the Sri Lanka ‘A’ Team tour to England in which Mubarak captained

    “He was 2nd on the list for most runs last year in Tier A. Mubaraks not even on the list.”
    Really? Thats because Mubarak was on call for national duty, idiot

    Try to count the number of times when Mubarak was among the top 3 scorers of the innings for Sri Lanka in the 30 odd ODI matches he has played so far 😛

    btw, nice attempt to get your visitor count up. lol

    some people really need to calm the fuck down, it’s his damn blog, not your mothers, so shut the fuck up if you don’t like what’s on there. let me ask you, how many of you are so called royalists? yeah…. now go to hell.

    yeah yeah he always does very well against zimbabwe, so that’s why he’s picked to play zimbabwe then get a place in the team. don’t worry guys, miracles don’t happen always.
