He's back

Like a bad penny. Yup, Shoaib Akhtar is back in cricket. I've not quite understood how, but apparently there was some ban on him, and then it was upheld, and then there was some other problem with him playing in the IPL, and that got taken care of, and so on and on and on. And on. And I'm making it worse by blogging about it. So I'll stop. But still, this article reporting on his return, is unintentionally hilarious for no matter who is quoted in it, they all can't help but be infected by the comedy that accompanies Akhtar. Read about Ganguly's delight at this new presence in his team (can the team really accommodate both of them?); read about Akhtar's joy at returning to Eden Gardens (dude, the crowd doesn't like you; they dislike you intensely for 'running out' Tendulkar in that test you mention); and then lastly, theres Buchanan, with the right touch of pompousness to round it off. All three of them, inhabiting different floors of the Cuckoo Tower.

Oh and did u hear the 70,000 at the Eden Gardens chant his name?

Shoaib, Shoaib, Shoaib!

They loved him. And they cheered him on against Sehwag, against Gambhir.

It was great. It felt great.

U really have faith in him, don't you Samir?

1) He wont lose a match for them.
2) Even if he does, Kolkata will still love him. They always have.
