Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Pakistan "thrashed" India to win the cricket Champions Trophy. It was a humiliation for India that has never been beaten so badly by anyone.

Having India and Pakistan in the final after defeating England, Australia, South Africa (all considered unbeatable) was a dream come true for the Trophy organizers. It guaranteed a viewership of over a billion people.

Dude... why are you taking it out on your sh---y TV???

Anyway, the lives of the people who will be blamed for India's defeat (eg. the captain of the team) will be ruined. Their government will see to that.

Last time India lost, their team players and managers were hit by massive tax probes and many were financially ruined. The Indian gubmint takes a loss, specially against their "enemy", very very personally.

I would think the victory over England to be bigger..

It would be like a Pakistani team beating an American one in the superbowl.

England crash out in Cardiff after emphatic defeat by magnificent Pakistan

Oops!

A major upset it was. England, on the rise in one-day cricket ever since the 2015 World Cup and the only unbeaten country hitherto in this Champions Trophy, were knocked out by Pakistan....

England couldn't make it to the finals because Pakistan sent it home in tears.

Clueless fellow....

A few questions-- What does Cricket's "spring training" consist of? 6 hours of sitting in an armchair?

Also, if someone is painting a fence and also watching a cricket game, doesn't the urge to watch the paint dry take away from the overall enjoyment of watching the game?

Is/Was Inzamam Ul-Haq Cricket's equivalent of Babe Ruth? At least weight-wise? Do you think, theoretically speaking, he could eat 500 potato samosas before breakfast and still manage to roll out onto the field and being called a potato WITHOUT assaulting someone in the stands?

Absolutely.

WITHOUT assaulting someone in the stands?

Probably not.

Cricket has changed over the decades.

The original cricket match (called a "Test Match") lasts 5 days. THAT is the one you think is boring.

This was another kind of cricket called "One Day International". Each team bats for half a day or so.

The fastest kind of cricket is a "T-20" match. It has a different trophy/championship. It is very fast ... faster than baseball.. and the batsmen take risks they would rather avoid normally. Not boring at all.

the balls are much harder in cricket than baseball and the fielders don't wear massive gloves like snowflake baseball players.
