Cricket fever is running high these days. And every one here believed that our national team stood a good chance of winning the World Cup. In fact, the new Big Boss and the second –in- command informed the cricket authorities here of their desire to convey their well wishes to our lads in action.
The Cricket Chair in office and the Executive boss duly arranged for the top duo to skype their greetings to the team. Skyping over, the new Big Boss invited the Chair, the secretarial one and the executive boss for a confab. During the conversation that ensued, the cricket bigwigs invited the new Big Boss to the Cup Finals in case the national team entered the finals. The new Big Boss said: “Sorry. I think I have to miss the pleasure, because by that time, I might be on my planned official visit to China.” On second thoughts, he inquired from the bigwigs the date and the time fixed for the Cup Finals. Pat came the answer to the query from the secretarial one. “It will be a day match to be played on….”
Meanwhile, the cricket Chair who consulted the Cup series schedule said: “Sir, this will be a day and night match.” However, the secretarial one who did not want to be outdone, insisted that it would be a day and night one. However, the Chair stood his ground.
Later, the new Big Boss got his aides to make discreet inquiries as to the scheduled time of the Cup Finals. And he was informed that it would be a day and night match. The cricket secretarial one lost face once again by trying to show off to the new Big Boss, they say.
