New year wishes of a DieHard Cricket Fan

In the new year, all Diehard Cricket Fans sincerely hope...

The Indian bowlers will pick some wickets and concede lesser runs than their batsmen can score.
[350 in every second match is inhuman even for the best batting lineup in the world.]

The Pakistan batsmen will put enough runs on the board for their bowlers to defend.
[Enough means about 250.]

Sri Lanka will learn to handle Junaid Khan before the end of 2014.
[And hope they continue to feed Virat Kohli with those easy runs]

England will at least once play a fully English team.
[OK, going by IPL rules, we'll allow 4 overseas players. But not more.]

South Africa will NOT find a replacement for Kallis.
[It is complete injustice to all other teams that one team has so many all-rounders.]
Australia will find a solution to the LBW woes of Twatto.
[Not because I like him but just to see him getting bowled.]

New Zealand will find more opportunities to play Cricket.
[Haven't seen much of the current lot. Chris Cairns is more visible]

Bangladesh will scrap the Below the Poverty line League [BPL] and instead play some serious Cricket.
[Dazed by the T-20 madness, their batsmen play the ugliest shots we can see on a pitch]

Zimbabwe will find some sponsor who will finally manage to pay the players.
[This is serious stuff. These players deserve better management]

West Indies will find a glue that can prevent collapses.
[Fevicol should sponsor a batting academy in the Caribbean]

The minnows will continue to grow and trouble the bigger teams.
[Bored of watching same Ashes, Pakistan - South Africa and India - Sri Lanka series. Love to see Nepal and Afghanistan troubling bigger teams]

And finally the Comedy show people will lock Sidhu on their show or in the Bigg Boss house or anywhere on the television including CID or Saas - Bahu serials, so that we are saved from more Sidhuisms.
[We have suffered enough for two lifetimes. We all need break !]
