The day after yesterday

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

And finally

–    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.

    What problem you have with Murali getting the spotlight again? Are you, like, of Australian ancestry?

    Raj> Understand, the relationship between the flyslip and Splendid is far beyond the comprehension of mere mortals.

    We believe Mendis should always have the spotlight no matter what he does.

    So Murali getting the spotlight is really about Splendid not having it.

    There is no animosity towards the Great Google eyed one.

    Me ? Australian ? Take it back Raj. Take it back before I loose it again.

    Dont post this kind of thing. Mendis would want to come and bowl even with his injured ankle. 😛

    ok, take it back. After all, you have the great Splendid in your corner. Last I checked, no Indian stands a chance against him 🙂

    Actually, Sachintha, why not? He might still end up with 6 wickets!

    Do you think Splendid would be able to play if they allowed him to use a segway? It is a shame, because no matter who the opposition are, there are few things if any that are more captivating in cricket today than watching Murali and Splendid (I love that name!) bowl in tandem.
