The Poetry Of Bishen Bedi

Taken from here; inspired by this; [and a previous post on the poetry of Waqar Younis]:

————-

When you buy a shirt,

A pair of trousers,

How do you buy it?

It is very simple:

You

give

a

few

runs,

You

buy

a

wicket.

——————–

Flight is a trajectory,

It is a loop It is

Quickish in the air

But,

It has a rainbow effect.

——————–

If the batsman is shaking his head

While negotiating the spinning ball,

Then advantage bowler.

If you are setting a field for bad bowling,

Advantage batsmen.

———————-

“Right areas” is not on the 22 yards of the playing surface;

“Right areas” is the six inches between your ears.

You have to plan a strategy;

You have to plan a man out.

——————–

What is the job of the batsmen?

To score runs.

What is the job of the bowler?

To get wickets.

    When he talks about spin: poetry, anything else: rubbish.

    I have observed that online education is getting favorite because obtaining your degree online has developed into a popular choice for many people. A large number of people have never had a possibility to attend a regular college or university although seek the increased earning potential and a better job that a Bachelor’s Degree affords. Still some others might have a diploma in one training but wish to pursue some thing they now possess an interest in.

  4. I’m in agreement with this. Open discourse is the answer.
