after weeks of trying, sahil finally comes up with a piece that made me laugh..

@Sanki88: Its Sreesanth in the last frame. He got in because Praveen Kumar is injured.. so he is dancing like he danced in 2006 when he hit Nel for a 6 in a test match. Awesome...

@Sanki88, the guy in the last box holding the bat is Appam Chutiya aka Sree-moron-santh. The modern day Agarkar. Actually he's worse, at least Agarkar's got a fast 50 in ODIs, a test hundred and is a brilliant fielder with a strong arm. Economy of 6 in ODIs is just ridiculous. It's unfortunate PK can't play.

@sanki88: The person in the last clip is Sreesanth if I am right. He replaced Praveen kumar in India's WC squad.

ah great one SreeSanth monking in happiness as he did against South Africa after hitting a six to Andre Neil great one.
