Hang it Out There
As promised, here are some of the gems dished out by Doordarshan’s Hindi and English commentators during the 6th ODI between India and Australia at Nagpur. These are apart from the usual ones like Shanka ka galiyara (corridor of uncertainty) and Chhoti gaend (short ball):
Yashpal Sharma when Clark got out getting a faint edge to Dhoni: …yeh appeal zaroor hui thi…aur ye bahut jorse kinara laga hai!
Commentator Sunil introducing Sreesanth: …yeh unka 33va match, ab tak 46 match khel chuke hai! (it was supposed to be 46 wickets)
…and that is appeal!
…immediately he had to depart back
…the Brad Hodge has not been in good form
…the batsman has to hang it out there!
…Pathan and Bhajji have done the damage for Australia
…that is why his average has shooted up
Yashpal Sharma again when Symonds played a late cut: …late kar dekhna hai…
I am quite sure these guys neither have any idea about nor any interest in their jobs. But who cares? They provide free entertainment! Keep hanging it out there guys!
