Is Writer Fatigue the reason for staid cricketing copy? (Satire)

The Cricket Writers Association of India (CWAI) are up in arms.

The premier union of sports writers has written to the BCCI regarding the hectic Indian cricket calendar this year .

Beginning with the Ashes and the India-South Africa tour, followed by the World Cup and now the IPL, it has been one form of cricket followed by the other, with nary a break.

“What about the helpless journos?” cries CWAI president, Wicketless Witter.

“We have no time to recuperate from repetitive stress injuries (RSI). Lugging around our laptops and travelling all over the country is very stressful on our bodies.”

The IPL is followed by tours of West Indies, England and Australia. Sandwiched in between is the T20 Champions trophy.

“When do we find the time to be with our families? Unlike the Indian cricket team, we do not have reserves to fill in for us. Rarely do we have separate reporters for different forms of cricket.”

“Additionally, creating copy for various matches and outstanding cricketing performances has become a chore. If we repeat ourselves, we are boring. We don’t find any time to enhance our repertoire. We need more breaks.”

The BCCI is looking into the matter. The ICC has been forwarded a copy of the petition.

Sources within the BCCI say that the eloquent missive sparked an emotive response from ICC President Sharad Pawar. He ,subsequently, announced his resignation from the group of ministers (GOM) guiding the controversial LokPal bill.

I know a man who gave up smoking, drinking, sex, and rich food. He was healthy right up to the time he killed himself.
