@Bilal Khan thanks for the explanation! Now it makes sense....LOL

One of your best Satish - not much for the humour but for the artwork - its extremely clear who all 3 players are - their expressions are great - and most people would instantly get the joke. @bilal khan and @yogikhanna - no, the joke does not refer to Raina imitating Billy Bowden (what u read @bilal was probably not true and a joke itself) Raina once sent a tweet insulting the Pak team and faced a lot of flak for it on twitter and in the media. He soon deleted the tweet and claimed his nephew got hold of his phone and sent the tweet from his account. Of course - Raina got even more flak for his explanation

Rohit Sharma should never have opened. But now that he has scored one good knock, he will be given another 30 chances to fail again. Rohit seems to have more lives than a cat. When will India learn that they should invest in Rahane or any other player instead of Rohit
