Elizabeth Hurley: What she said, really meant and definitely did not


Cute!

What she said:

"SW does not wear eye makeup or have an ‘eye liner tattoo’ – his eyes were born that way!"

Elizabeth Hurley rushes to the defence of  her boyfriend, Shane Warne, categorically denying that the blonde leg-spinner has been using her make-up to appear attractive.

What she really meant:

“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and not in eyeliners!”

What she definitely didn’t:

“Beauty is skin-deep.Hence, I’m returning my Estee Lauder products.”

Kirk Edwards: What he said, really meant and definitely did not

What he said:

"I use my feet. Whether it’s Harbhajan or not … I don’t play names."

Kirk Edwards is not intimidated by Harbhajan Singh or any other spinner. He’s got twinkling feet.

What he really meant:

“I play each ball on its merits. It doesn’t matter to me who’s bowling.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Does Bhajji turn the ball?”

Graeme Swann: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


 

What he said:

"It’s not to do with just being overweight, it’s the reluctance to buy into the discipline of it that was his downfall."

What he really meant:

“If you can’t keep off the food and keep off the kilos, mate, get off the gravy train.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“I’m a huge Ramesh Powar fan.”

In the latter, we have the best teams representing their country, whereas the IPL teams are constrained to having just 4 foreign internationals representing them and at the same time they need to ensure that deserving youngsters (read youngsters with potential) are given a chance to ware their talents. So suddenly we have our IPL heroes peppered with short-pitched balls and when you are a team batting second and chasing a  large total, you have to try and hit every ball and the proclivity to succumb to the short-pitched variety is both exposed and exploited. Besides, since when have Indian batsmen known to be masters of the short ball?
