Team India dedicates T20 batting performance to Shinde

In what has been widely hailed as a remarkable display of sensitivity, Team India batsmen dedicated their performance in the T20 match vs Pakistan to Union Home Minister Sushil Kumar Shinde. It may be remembered that below par performance by Indian batsmen let the team down in the crucial T20 tie against arch rivals Pakistan in Bangalore yesterday.

You can keep this: Dhoni to the other guy
Speaking at an informal interaction with Indian bloggers, Indian captain M S Dhoni attributed the batting performance to a decision the team had collectively taken on Monday evening. “We had decided that if we perform well, we will keep quiet but if we perform below par, the whole thing will be attributed to our home minister. It is the least we could do for such a remarkable underperformer and undeserving minister,” Dhoni said asking us to go off record.      

BCCI sources are reportedly quite miffed with the decision. When asked, a senior BCCI official who was caught giggling in Lok Sabha in the middle of a serious debate said “If it was about performance, they should have simply dedicated it to Sharad Pawarji. He is among the best underperformers in the government right now and deserves this honor more than anyone else. I mean how many ministers out there have been slapped by a common man? His lack of administrative skills has been on display for quite some time and the team should have endorsed him rather than Shinde”.
