hahaha!! love the way he drew bhajji and symonds. :) if you didn't know, you'd think they were busy doing the tango. :)

i think "always" is the key word. also, one unemployment and another unemployment gives you two unemployments (plural), therefore, he was unemployed once, now he's employed, so he's always going to be between the first unemployment and the next one which means he's always going to be employed... unless the bcci decide otherwise.

@A.S.Judge - you're missing the word ALWAYS.

@Ska , the fact that you have used the word 'between' suggests that their are also periods of employment 'between' the unemployment.

Imagine Bhajji scoring more runs than Symond. :)

i fail to understand why people are unable to find the humor in Sahil's cartoons...

I don't know whether any or all of you understand it or not but "always between unemployments" means ALWAYS EMPLOYED. I'll be glad to be corrected.

i think its about time sahil rizwan went through another of his unemployment periods. There must be better humorists out there.

Just imagine Bhajji and Symmo at the strikers and non-strikers end... will they ever walk towards each other to chat???
