Mamta Banerjee questions Ravi Shastri’s ‘character’

Ravi Shastri’s jinxed commentary has sunk team India’s victory hopes on so many occasions that fans have taken it for granted that if the former cricketer wields the microphone, a loss is near certain. It came as no surprise today that many knew India would win as and when they heard that Shastri was stuck in the lift and would not be available for commentary atleast for a while.

As soon as the news of Shastri getting lodged in the lift broke, reactions came from all sides. West Bengal CM Mamta Banerjee while questioning the veracity of the episode, questioned Ravi Shastri’s character which she claimed was quite ‘questionable’. “The very fact that he went into the lift with a statistician, does not show Shastri in good light,” Banerjee said before scooting off to write another threatening letter to the PM.

Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal meanwhile chose to place the blame on the lift manufacturer. “The liability for use of the lift lies entirely with the manufacturer and not the user. We will take adequate steps to ensure that manufactures bear responsibility for all crimes that take place within their lifts,” he said. External Affairs minister S M Krishna said that the Indian government was monitoring the situation and would respond in an ambiguous way as and when his ministry’s bureaucrats return after evening tea.

Sympathies poured in from across India and Australia for the lift involved in the incident. “It must have been a terrifying episode – for the lift that is,” a Humor Unplugged reader from Sydney said.

Ravi Shastri meanwhile asked the liftman of the lift to retire immediately without waiting for any more milestones. He also questioned the selection process for appointing lift managers.
