India ,having been bowled out for 105 and 107 respectively in the 2 innings of Pune test and having lost by 333 runs to Australia, has decided to completely change the battle ground. Vinod Rai, the president of BCCI said- “After first test, we have no doubt that we can not compete with this Australian team in the cricket ground. But at the same time we can not afford to lose a test series at home. We have already given away a test win to Aussies.That is all that they would get. We will now play EA sports Cricket instead of remaining test matches ”
Before taking this drastic step, Indian selectors tried to reach out to players to know about the reason for their poor performance. Indian ace bowler, Ishant Sharma, who went wicketless said “Mujhe IPL me kisi ne nahi khareeda. Mujhe mummy ke paas jaana tha taaki me ro sakun. Isliye meine ye master plan banaya jisse ki match 4 din me hi khatam ho jaye.” Talking about the test, Murali Vijay, who opened the innings and scored total of 12 runs in 2 innings said ”12 is my lucky number. I asked Yuvraj Singh to lend his jersey number 12 which he refused. Hence I scored 10 in first inning to pay tribute to Tendulkar and 2 in the last inning to get to my lucky number of 12.”
Kangaroos have been caught off-guard. Steve Smith, the Australian skipper, was very disturbed with this move. Talking to FalsePost he said, “We do not have any EA Cricket expert in our team.I have played a bit of it but the one that they would be using is the pirated version of EA Cricket 1998. Atleast they should use the latest genuine version of the game.” Meanwhile, India has launched nationwide talent hunt program. BCCI officials are raiding engineering colleges during midnight to get hold of students playing EA cricket. Most of these engineers apart from being a pro at using outdated version are also experts of the pirated avatar of the game.
