The Brownshirts are back
Woo-hoo. The Brownshirts are back. Goose-stepping, jackboots and all. Here is Mr. Niranjan Shah of the Brownshirted Cricket Corporation of India complaining about the PCB allowing Mushtaq Ahmed and Rana Naved Ul Hasan to play in English county cricket:
we have an understanding with the other countries' boards that they can't allow players who are associated with the ICL to be allowed to play at any level, regardless of the reason the player has a contract with his board or not. [emphasis added]Imagine this situation. Two Pakistani players want to play in English county cricket. They have also played in the ICL. But the BCCI will not let them. Not let them play in English county cricket, can you dig it? They are not Indian players. They are not playing for Pakistan. They are playing in another country. But the BCCI will not let them. Not allow a professional to make his living by plying his trades in any way. Pardon my language, but I want to see these bastards sued out of existence. For now, I'm going to download Shah's photograph, paint a stubby moustache on it, and use it as a dartboard.
