Despite loosing all their three super 8 matches, for me India is still the T20 champ. Actually every player had some “genuine” reasons for not being able to perform. I have listed the problems of some of them below:
Virender Sehwag: Unfortunately he got injured. A ball hit his head and two of his hairs were damaged. So he has to leave west indies for hair transplant.
Gautum Gambhir: Gauti-veera bhai bhai. He couldn’t have betrayed veeru by performing in his absence. That’s called real love..err.rr..friendship.
Yuvraj Singh: haven’t u seen his stomach? He is pregnant, dude!
Suresh Raina: His contract has clear mention: “No Short Balls”. It’s not his fault if bowlers breached the contract.
Yusuf Pathan: He himself doesn’t know why is he in the team.
Rohit Sharma: He didn’t want to get away from the title, “POTENTIALLY a great batsman” by exploiting his potential.
MSD: He didn’t want mumbaikars to again face the traffic jams as they had to after 2007 win. (He is so caring!)
Praveen Kumar: Bappi da was again donating one of his chain. So he had to go there to collect it. (He already has 7 of his chains!)
Harbhajan Singh: Revenge! from MSD for the IPL final.
Zaheer Khan: Actually he was in a big dilemma about what to wear at the nigh party. Now tell me whats more important, cricket or party?? of course party na!
Ravinder Jadega: undoubtedly the man of the tournament. BCCI threw him out of the IPL, and he single-handedly had the team India being thrown out from T20 tournament.
Piyush Chawla: He wanted the selectors to know, what the whole world already knows, that Ojha and Mishra are far than him. Thats why he deliberately bowled bad, so that selectors don’t repeat their mistake.
Dinesh Karthik: He was still wondering what his call to Murli Karthik has to do movie with the movie, Karthik calling Karthik.
Ashish Nehra: Look at his face! First give him some food and then ask him to play. You can’t play a malnutrition person in the team.
Murli Vijay: He was still praying for yellow jersey to hargeez wins, not realizing its blue! All his prayers went waste!
Vinay Kumar: Ya, a player of such name was there in the team and even played a match !
Umesh Yadav: He went there, enjoyed the parties and came back. He wasn’t even bothered to carry drinks, coz none of the batsman stayed that long on the crease.
And the biggest reason of their failure: Cheerleaders were not hot!
