I personally thought Ricky had a bout of TVSmash-itis after networks showed numerous replays of his "L-freezes-over" clash with Sreesanth and he got fed up. But this is a good enough reason too! Brilliant :)

Australia won't goto finals, thats why he is trying to book a ticket for the finals... Good one.

Probably the best French Cut that will ever be featured. @h_kap, the last pane refers to the crashing of kazoonga website which books WC tickets for audiences.
