A Miscellany of Unpublished Articles
Here in BC, the standard IS
high and many of the articles unfortunately don't make the cut. Thass ok; fupaye fupaye kol balishe mukh rekhe kadlei to hobe na. Amader shoktishali hote hobe. Tai chai BOOST.
To boost my post count here is one such 'gem' -if I may- that has forever been veiled from public eye. Can you guess the cricket match for which the informal bulletin was written?

Time zero: Match begins with, Shafiul keeps it tight, chatroom still cracking jokes on what fuchka or chotpoti Darren Sammy ate
for bad stomach. Then the conversations starts derailing towards food.

50th over: 299 to chase which Bangladesh would go on to lose by 40 runs
The guy you hit? If he got a look at the plates, it won't even take that long. There's no play here. There's no angle, there's no champagne room. I'm not a miracle worker, I'm a janitor. The math on this is simple; the smaller the mess, the easier it is for me to clean up.
