Alright, I was just kidding there, but David Morgan’s statement that “The World Cup would be the poorer without matches being hosted in New Delhi” just touches my heart so deeply.
It’s the most kind act I’ve seen or heard since Andrew Flintoff memorably consoled Brett Lee after Australia fell short by 2 runs in the Edgbaston test of the Ashes 2005.
On a serious note, the statement clearly reeks of BCCI arm-twisting.
I mean, seriously, what is so special about Delhi?
I’ve nothing against the people of Delhi but, really, if it was, say, Eden Gardens, I can perfectly understand the sentiments since Eden Gardens can hold, if I’m not mistaken, 80,000 odd people.
However, a thought just crossed my head…
Is David Morgan actually campaigning for the “prevention of cruelty to bowlers” by wanting to have Delhi on the roster?
Because, TBH, I actually enjoyed seeing the batsmen hop about that day. It was nice to see the bowlers enjoying bowling rather than drag their feet to the top of their mark.
If that’s the case, then here’s my opinion on this statement
wOOt David Morgan!
