Gentleman and Ladies,
It was a difficult night for all of us here at the flyslip. We stayed up all night, hitting the caffeine, pressing F5 at intervals of 30 seconds exactly to see if there was to be any news of the injury to our man.
Why do humans need ankles. Why did evolution create such a useless piece of bone and ligaments
How many of us actually use our Ankle for anything.
Does it help you get laid ? A job ? The answer is no my friends. It is useless and I pray for a day when we evolve into ankleless creatures.
Bloody hell it even stops us from rotating our feet 360 degrees. Which is something we all secretly want.
After the initial shock we realized our Splendid will only be out for a few weeks. Which is ok I guess.
Some people asked me why I am so worried because we are ONLY facing Bangladesh next up.
Clearly these people did not see the Zimbabwe series.
Anywho, we killed the night thinking about a world without Mendis, all I can say it just wont be the same.
– We would have to endure watching Jehan Mubarak bowl
– Murali will have the spotlight again
– No one to save Captain Marvelous from embarrassment
– Teams will end up scoring more than a 100 runs against us
– Our batsmen will actually have to score ‘runs’.
Which is a task beyond their capabilities at the moment.
Its also good to note that Malinga also got hit with this ridiculous ankle knack and he’s been out for more than 10 months or something now.
Hopefully Splendid will be rested and recovers sooner.
