If you ever feel depressed in life and think life could not have been worser, just hear Hindi cricket commentary (even if it is the highlights of an age old match telecast for the nth time on DD). You might end up laughing your heart out.
Take for instance the World Cup cricket match yesterday between Sri Lanka and Ireland. Ireland had appealed for a run out and third umpire was called into action. TV replays were showing M. Jayawardene cross over safely before the ball hit the wicket and the bails got dislodged. The Hindi commentator (a former Indian cricketer) tells something to this effect as his conclusion from the action replay: “aisa lag raha hai ki gend lagne ke bahut der baad bails aaraam se gir rahe hain (it appears as though the bails are getting dislodged slowly, a long time after the ball hit the wickets)” 😀 🙂 ….. and I am ROTFL !!!!
