Flippin'

It seems I am compelled to explain to the world why I - to borrow the words of Monty Python - flatulate in the general direction of T20. When allegedly self-respecting cricketers participate then it is respectable, no ? Experts write about it. India is good at it - we won the first 'world cup'. It is a change of guard they say. It is blancophilic, pro-colonialist to stick to old sober formats. It is elitist to deride the face-painting six-hollerers. Needless to say it is anti-feminist too.

For all ye near extinct cricket lovers, don't you think the bookcricket world cup is up next ? Imagine India winning and then some extrapolation about who should retire will possibly be made. And then I expect self-respecting journalists writing insightful articles about this:

It is a format that really challenges the technical acumen of the players
and the captain. You need to adapt the flipping techniques on the fly factoring
in the texture of pages, tuning the nimbleness of the flipping fingers etc. The
dynamics of the format demand the quick thinking and level headed youngsters
are best suited for adaptive play.The world cup victory
assures us that we can confidently think of the change of the old guard as the
future of Indian cricket is in safe hands
