Silly points

I have a feeling that my esteemed host, Blogger, is beginning to have problems with longish posts... have been trying for quite a few days now to post, but though the system accepts my test posts, the moment i post my real post, there are problems...maybe thats the way it is now,from blogger to cricket, short is sweet.... and so small posts and twenty twenty cricket may just be the future...
But having said that, i do recall a good punchline i saw recently for some local crickettournament which said 'The future of cricket is limited'... i really believe they were also referring to the indian team.. inspite of having perhaps the maximum number of potential match winners in a team, as a whole, they just ain't good enough.. although it is said that the sum of the parts is always lesser than the whole, we have a sad case of some of the parts being too big for the whole!!
Meanwhile, have been hearing the Pakistan captain Inzy requesting the English team to play a test in Karachi, but the English team has been vehemently refusing citing security reasons... i am actually wondering, after 7/7 and with Javed Mian as the proud dad after his son's marriage to Dawood's daughter, Karachi might just be the safest place on the planet, at least, as far as cricket venues go...
until next time, maybe maybe Dawood XI vs Dravid XI is the future....
