If you add in the West Indies administrator, this can also be a metaphor for cutting it too close.

Satish, Superlative! Couldn't be better! The expression on Dalmiya's face is also priceless. No wonder you are all-time favourite cartoonist.

hahaha nice one satish ! P.S india are still getting test cricket and tour along with england who just played 5 ashes test .. will play test cricket again in australia and then 5 test with india .. while other teams like pakistan srilanka, westindies and southafrica as well are hardly getting test series if they do the series are trimmed to 2 or maximum 3tests or some tours(like pakistan tour to westindies) are without test series what is wrong with icc ??? pakistan have played not even half of test matches as compared to india or england in last 3 years since worldcup

Indeed very funny but at the same time it's too sad also that the series between Ind Vs SA which surely would have been an interesting one especially the test matches; now could be trimmed or cancelled. It is really a bad news for cricket lovers.

That was so funny. If I am not wrong it shows that how BCCI keep on trimming the tours.
