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.

I was born exactly 4500 days after Sachin Ramesh Tendulkar was... And unlike Sachin, I was gifted a cricket bat even before my 4th b'day - it's just that he learnt to make better use of it... But if you split me into two, you will find cricket (no exaggeration here - my blood is of the same colour as a cricket ball).. You can catch me blogging <a href="">here</a> and tweeting <a href="">here</a>.
