Cricketer's egos ... cont.
I put this on my blog some time back but will repeat it coz it is that good - Sidhu on his weekly program on NDTV regularly equates the selector's job to that of high court and supreme court judges. His solution to the selection process cleansing is - pay the selectors 20 lacs per annum and watch them produce great results / transparency / whatever.
20 frikkin lacs???? I can imagine the ex-crickters slobbering all over Pawar / Dalmiya / etc and kissing their ass to get that job. Sidhu didn't explain how it would all work out with the transparency / accountability / etc ... I think he has not yet thought beyond the "equal to high court / supreme court judges" and "pay them 20 lacs per annum" arguments. I dread the day he does.
Anyways, the rest isn't that important, is it? With 20 lacs per annum in the pocket, who gives a fig anyways?
