How bored people dress
Sitting in a dull room and blabbering about the same things over and over is tough job. Therefore, Charu Sharma and Arun Lal who have been presenting the the most boring ‘analysis’ of the Indian tour of New Zealand need a special mention. Both are former national level sportsmen and hence do not shy away from challenges. Presenting this analysis in a secluded studio somewhere in India, therefore, while an unfortunate occurrence for miserable TV-watching fans like me, is a ‘baae haath ka khel’ (play of the left hand) for them.
As if the analysis was not enough, however, today the two came up another ace up their sleeves — atrocious dressing. I had only just woken up when the Indian and Kiwis went into Tea on the fourth day of the third test. Whatever sleep was left in my eyes vanished when the bored duo appeared. Thankfully, the volume was kept at zero.
Well, what the heck, at least the dressing made a boring programme a little more interesting.
