Beer, Chips and Cricket

This is a site about drinking beer, eating chips and thinking cricket. I am not a former player, a television commentaror or a journalist; my qualification to being worthy of hearing is that I drink a lot of beer, eat a lot of chips and think a lot about cricket. The thoughts need not be politically correct and often include colourful language but there will be no deliberate bias towards any player, community or state. I don't care about popular opinion or perceptions and I speak it as I see it.

Cricketer's egos ... cont.

When I say "cricketers get big egos" (as in my last post), just include ex-cricketers.

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?

Cheers

The Chuckster
