Why did Wayamba get kicked out?

October 16, 2009

creative-cricketNot the Brits (atleast this time)
Not our batting
Not our bowling
Not our fielding
Not our Physio (although a Kate Stalker would have helped)

C’mon, even your penfriend cyber buddy from Belgium, who hasn’t seen an over of Cricket will tell you, what the hell kind of name is “Wayamba XI” when the others come up with :

  • Trinidad & Tobago
  • Somerset Sabres
  • New South Wales Blues
  • Diamond Eagles
  • Cape Cobras
  • Royal Challengers Bangalore
  • Delhi Daredevils
  • Victoria Bushrangers

I mean playing book cricket while pretending to listen to a boring Social Studies lesson in school, we had much more snappy team names. Hell we even had score cards, and tournament rankings. So I don’t have to tell you how serious we took our Interval cricket, right?

    It’s definitely better than Royal Challengers Bangalore or Delhi Daredevils. Or Diamon Eagles, even. Gay, those are.

    I actually think Wayamba is a great name…i dont know why all the sports teams of the world are named after some dog cat or shark…and whats with the “daredevils” and the most stupidiest one “knight riders” ? how many indians (bar the ones from the cities who speak english) actually know what a knight is ? i am sure they think its NIGHT RIDER !!!
