Default "Ind and Pak are cricket's Paris Hilton and Britney Spears"

The joy of cricket has moved south and east on the subcontinent:
South Asian shuffle

The joy of cricket, the vitality of it, in the subcontinent has migrated southwards and eastwards. Whether it is a permanent shift or just temporary asylum can only be guessed but, as Karachi and Mumbai stand jaded, Colombo and Dhaka are set to sparkle...........read more: http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/colu...ry/289710.html

Liked this lines: "Off it, they are cricket's Paris Hilton and Britney Spears. One, pure monied trash, influential for no other reason than having too much of it, the other straight-up trailer trash, cricket's true basket case. They are tabloid fodder, stumbling from one front page to another: religion, player factionalism, spats, coaching intrigues, politicking, doping and even possible murder. How much of the news that you have read about these two sides recently has been about their cricket?"


OSamiuddin has drew the vivid picture how SL and BD enjoyed in the middle of the field.....which seems made the big difference of all. Nice observation. Hope BD can live upto this and carry this to the next games, which also means consistency. And, so he is cautious about his judgement about BD rightly.
