View Full Version : Show off (lol not me)

Nothing special, just wanted to share an incident.

Just before few days ago when we all were getting some cricket practise in a Park, A Paki guy was showing off big time. He was asking all the bowlers to bowl at him and if they get him out then he'll offer them a free lunch the next day. People started to bowl not because they were hungry (lol) but they were taking it as a challenge. Many pacers failed, then all the spinners started. Some of the spinners were really turning the ball. Then came my turn, I knew he is something big, gotta ball him some special deliveries. I failed in the first over but I didn't give up. Then I set up my mind to bowl him using Paul Adam's action and you won't believe me he was out on the 3rd ball of my 2nd over. That was a success, he then came to me and asked "What Club do you play for"? I was like holy, Club? I replied, I'm not a very regular cricketer, I play for my school and with friends. He offered me to play for his Club (don't remember the name). I was like, who has the time man? Then he asked me to have a free lunch but I denied just to make him realize that "Cricket is not gambling". And Yes I did ask him to stop the show off :D, as its not a sign of great person.

Adam's action really works, he is the man. :D

Prohor bhai,
U2U me your tel number, may be someday we can go together to one of the practice and lets see if you can earn a free lunch with your sledging. :lol:

Anyways, Prohor bhai I live in scarborough and as you might know that at the moment I'm enrolled in Computer Engineering (1st year) at Ryerson University. Did you check my intro? Our school (when I was in Grade 12) won the Toronto School District Board Cricket Championship 2003 and by the mercy of Alimighty I had good contribution with 55 runs and 3 wickets in the final.
