Please Sir, can we have no more?

Someone needs to break the news to Rahul Bhattacharya. He is a good cricket writer but he cannot write the sort of comedic material he keeps trying to produce. In his latest failed effort, RB attempts to go to town on Dean Jones. This is a serious drag. We finally have a good crop of Indian writers (Sambit Bal and Bhattacharya being the best), and now, unfortunately, one of them has decided to generate a portfolio of lame attempts at humor. While the basic premise in the piece is fairly promising it gets strained in the attempt to stretch it into a full piece. Sigh.
