Why did the chicken cross the road?
Why did the chicken cross the road? This question has baffled philosophers for many a centuries. Inspired by an old email forward, I thought I would list down the versions of some of the members of the cricketing fraternity.
VVS Laxman version:
There was a 2nd innings crisis on the other side.
Sachin Tendulkar version:
It wanted to set a record for crossing the road the highest number of times.
Sunil Gavaskar version:
Any young chickens out there watching, just look at Sachin’s chicken. This is the way one should cross the road.
Saurav Ganguly version:
The other side had less grass. (PS – the chicken later made a comeback to this side again)
Harbhajan Singh version:
To find out if it had made it large.
MS Dhoni version:
Well of course. It wanted to do something different.
Geoffrey Boycott version:
This is just roobish. Even my mum could have crossed the road.
Shane Warne version:
To join other ‘chicks’ across the road.
Murali Vijay version:
The chicken had to show some footwork, somewhere.
Rahul Dravid version:
While the entire world was watching other chickens, it silently crossed the road, unnoticed.
Kapil Dev version:
Kyunki murgi ne maa ka doodh piya tha, bakri ka nahi. Koi agar uske saamne aayega toh kaan ke neeche marunga keench ke.
Inzamam ul Haq version:
Bismillah-e-Rehman-e-Rahim! All credit goes to the boys. Insha Allah, hope the chicken can continue to cross the road like this.
South African team version:
The chicken was choking on this side.
Zulqarnain Haider version:
The chicken feared for its life. It had already updated its facebook status before crossing.
Mohammed Aamir version:
Salman Butt lured it into crossing the road. The chicken is innocent and should be spared.
Lalit Modi version:
It is a BCCI conspiracy to frame the innocent chicken. I will upload all relevant proof to my website soon.
Virender Sehwag version:
I am very happy that the chicken crossed the road. People say the chicken crosses bad roads also, but I think it crosses only the good ones.
Daryl Harper version:
It will be unfair to say that the chicken crossed the road. The chicken stays on this side of the road 96% of the times.
Krishnamachari Srikkanth version:
The chicken crossed the road. Its son also crossed the road on his own merit and for no other reasons.
Chris Gayle version:
The chicken had not signed any contract forbidding it from crossing the road.
Danny Morrison version:
It was a ‘charming chicken’ and I will refer to it as Double Cs. The chicken crossing the road was a Citi Moment of Success.
Haroon Lorgat version:
The chicken injured a leg while crossing the road. But we cannot provide a runner for it.
Glenn McGrath version:
The chicken will win the Ashes 5-0.
Navjot Singh Sidhu version:
Guru, the road was like the answer sheet of a student asked to write a 1000-word essay on Ravindra Jadeja’s achievements in cricket; and the chicken simply crossed it without even looking.
Arun Lal version:
The chicken crossed the road.
Tony Greig version:
The chicken is going, going. It’s gone.
Shahid Afridi version:
The chicken crossed the road. Retired. Came back again to this side younger. Repeat.
David Gower version:
The BCCI is wrong in opposing DRS. With Hawk-eye, we can trace the trajectory of the chicken even before it crosses the road.
N Srinivasan version:
<no statements given>
And last but definitely not the least, Ravi Shastri version:
The chicken crossed the road because that was exactly what the doctor ordered.
