As I drove home from my Saturday morning Walk’nTalk with Woofles, I listened to radio commentary on the cricket match between SA and Bangladesh.
Apart from the hilarious outrage of former Indian player Sanjay Manjrekar, when interviewing/ ripping apart the Bangladeshi team’s captain, Shakib Al Hasan, our local radio commentator was in fine form, too.
First, to paraphrase, slightly, Manjreker laid into Bangladesh for their hopeless collapse against SA:
Manjrekar: Bangladesh was appalling and really disappointed their fans. I think they deserve a word from you…
Al Hasan: Yes, they do. Sorry.
Concise, if nothing else, young Shakib.
Unfortunately, I did not catch the name of the Saffer commentator on Radio 2000, but when he said the following, it made me wish I could have seen Graham Smith and Jacques Kallis’s faces had they heard this description of the end of their innings:
Commentator: Some time later in the innings, Kallis joined his captain [Smith] in the bathroom … err, in the showers.
That’s quite a little post-innings relaxation ritual they have right there. Hahaha, bring on Friday!
