Answer: Both take 3 minutes to start!!!

I thought of the joke, while watching Jaffer at the Royal Challengers vs Chennai Super Kings match. Few interesting points on the games as a whole:

• Jaffar showed the way for the rest of the old brigade, read Rahul, Laxman and Co, on how to maximize your innate skills in a T20 format. Jaffer was wristy, and played to his strengths. The standout shot was his flick off Oram to the leg side boundary. Vintage Ranjitsinghji kind of stroke!!

• Watching Hayden and Parthiv Patel open the innings, reminded me of my early quizzing days with Santosh in college!!!

• The cheerleaders were dancing with increased fervor to the song’Huttidare Kannada nadi nalla huttibekku’. It then struck me that the World is truly Flat!!

• Chennai Super Kings’ official jersey colour is the same as the earlier Australian team jersey colour, ie, Canary yellow. We didn’t crack this question at Odyssey 2008.

• Dhoni is related to Jethrotull, looking at his agricultural heaves. The savagery reminded me of the way he tamed Dave Mohammad of the West Indies, during India‘s tour in 2004.

• Royal Challengers have won only a single game so far. It’s quite apt that Vijay Mallya owns them considering the fact that McDowell’s’ tag line is ‘Mera No 1’, which is pretty much the number of games that they have won!!

Was quite pleased that CSK won, considering the fact that RC were cruising at one point of time. Dhoni showed his astute captaincy skills, and managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. RC must be kicking themselves for having squandered a golden opportunity.

Tail piece: Arthur Wood, the Yorkshire wicketkeeper, actually said to left-arm spinner Hedley Verity (after South Africa's Jock Cameron had hit him for 30 in one over): "Go on Hedley, you've got him in two minds. He doesn't know whether to hit you for four or six."?
