Heavy weight Indian team!

In the 3rd test at WACA ...

1. 9 Indians have already scored centuries in their career! Ishant & RP have some catching up to do :-)
2. 6 double centuries! (309, 212, 270, 248*, 239, 281, 148, 102, 112*)

It doesn't happen often. 9 centurions in a team is the record, I think. I recall reading about one of the NZ teams having 10 players scoring a century (Shane Thomson or Adam Parore scored his century later).

Ping, Pong celebrations!

Yesterday, I was chatting with a friend after a very long while.

me: Ping
he: Pong

me: Pong-al celebrations? :-)

Pongal, the harvest festival of South India (esp. Tamil Nadu), was celebrated yesterday!

Ponting Code of Conduct!

Would this fit on a Placard?

Ponting Code of Conduct

"offend, insult, humiliate, intimidate, threaten,
disparage, vilify"

Listen (for racist words)

The first set of words are taken from the ICC Code of Conduct :-)
And Ponting is larger than the Code of Conduct ;-)

Johnny's integrity

Just a rhyme of yore ...

"Johnny, Johnny"
"Yes, Papa"
"Eating sugar?"
"No, Papa"
"Telling Lies?"
"No, Papa"
"Open your mouth"
"I think if you are actually questioning my integrity ..., you should not be standing here."
