Barrack Obama: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

Official presidential portrait of Barack Obama...

What he said:

“You invented the game. That’s like saying America is number one at baseball or American football.”

British Prime Minister, David Cameron,  relates US President Barrack Obama’s riposte to his boast of England being the No.1 side in world cricket.

What he really meant:

“Frankly, I don’t know much about cricket. But then, you don’t know much about baseball or American football, for that matter.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Crickets??? Aren’t those garden insects?”

Players whine about BCCI power (Humour)

Who’s afraid of  Barrack Obama?

Certainly not international cricketers.

Why should they care about the most powerful man in the world, when they have to deal with the BCCI? Proximity bites.

The Indian cricket board is not popular with current players cutting across national borders.

You would think otherwise. Without the IPL, foreign players are at the mercy of their respective cricketing boards.

The lousy ingrates.

Cricketers believe that the BCCI has an undue influence on the ICC’s decision-making.

Grow up, chaps. Money makes the world go round—clockwise and counter-clockwise.

They whinge yet 32% promise to retire prematurely from national commitments  to take part in the IPL and sundry T20 tournaments.

Aren’t you chewing off the hand that feeds?

Red wine for the whiners, please!

Note: You didn’t get this from the grapevine.
