Taming of the Shrew
By EFT correspondent reporting from New Buhari
EFT earlier reported that the injured Angelo Matthews was replaced by the attacking Colts and Wayamba all rounder. Thissara is known to be the best all rounder in the Island and his first class batting and bowling averages easily surpass Matthews and Maharoof. The public wonders why Thissara has not been picked for the senior squad before, here is EFT’s lowdown:
Although 20 years old, Thissara is already married. His wife is of the traditional Sri Lankan mould, nagging and demanding so much so that she wants to tour wherever he goes (no fault of the poor young girl, its just the way we bring up girls in this country). Poor old (young) Thissara dedicates most of his time to entertain every whim and fancy of his wife which has led to routine skirmishes with the tour management. Thissara has in the past made unreasonable demands regarding his wife’s travel and lodging arrangements from tour management. Tour organisers are already having nightmares given that he is due to join the side in India with his wife in tow. On previous tours his wife has been a pain to all concerned and has made poor old (young) Thissara run around in circles to meet her demands. Thissara has lost many opportunities to tour due to his incorrigible wife. EFT’s advice to Thissara, “Please rein in your wife!” EFT’s other advice to unmarried young players wanting to break into the side is, “for God’s sake don’t get married! And if you do, lay the ground rules from day one!”
Meanwhile a certain Media Manager of a certain South Asian Cricket Board is a known crook. This certain individual has fleeced money out of poor domestic servants in a certain Gulf country promising non existent tickets and subsequently fled this certain Gulf country leaving the poor housemaids stranded and without their hard earned cash saved through immense hardships to return to the certain South Asian country to see their loved ones. EFT implores this certain South Asian Cricket Board to conduct internal investigations about this certain individual’s past affairs. EFT likes to advise the Chairman of the Board not to go the way of Life of Brian and may Saint Thomas impart all his blessings on the corrupt individual to redeem himself. EFT would like to take this oppurtunity to wish all Sri Lankans in Bahrain heading home for Christmas Holidays on Air Lanka a safe and happy flight.
