Ill-Informed IPL Squad Profiles: Kolkata Knight Riders

with 2 comments

Captain Sourav Ganguly: Lives in a castle. Surrounded by a moat. On an island.

Ajit Agarkar: Assumed to be rubbish because he looks like a double-handled Toby jug. Is actually rubbish.

Chris Gayle: Has been known to hit cricket balls into atoms.

Charl Langeveldt: First name always makes me want to go ‘sss’ like when Americans say ‘math’.

Brendon McCullum: First ever owner of the golden helmet for leading IPL run-scorer. Wish I had a golden helmet. I’d wear it everywhere. To work. To bed. In the shower.

Angelo Matthews: Sounds like he should be a bit-part actor in things like Miami Vice and Beverly Hills Cop.

Owais Shah: Runs like a skittish kitten.

Ishant Sharma: Sounds like Instant Karma, but looks more like George Harrison.

  1. Ah my team – never seen em play of course but now it’s on the mighty ITV4….this report is very much my level with this sort of cricket I think.

    You forgot invisible man: Mr Bond. He is not on their web site either – wasn’t he rather expensive?

    Ganguly – love the name. Sharma – well you have to have some extravagant hair in your side haven’t you?

    If only Owais could run as well as a skittish kitten…..

    • To be honest, I couldn’t think of anything funny to say about Bond, so I skipped him. Hence there is no mention of the hoardes of young Indian cricketers that make up half the IPL roster.

      I promise I haven’t forgotten you.
