The Coach: He once had a gig there. He learned the language but can't figure out why he doesn't get the call to lead the team to glory.

The Player: Is a few wickets short stumps. Was once the star and had the nation swooning at his feet. Now he can't figure out why he is in the wilderness - he believes he is in top form but hasn't scored a run in years.

The Administrator: He once ran the whole show but never got the love of the fans. He manipulated everyone to try to get the top job in the world but as soon as he makes it, they go ahead and change the job description. He ends up being a gopher with a highfalutin title and that's all.

Each episode we will focus on one of the protagonists with the other room-mates providing foil for the comedy.

We should call it: "As the ball turns"
You missed the next door neighbor, the commentator who likes to peep and also learnt the language, unfortunately neither the phonetics nor the game.
