A conversation between Sourav Ganguly and Adam Gilchrist after the last day`s play in the 2nd Test (in Chennai) was washed out. I have to warn you that it is not at all imaginative…and is really stupid.
Index: SG: Sourav Ganguly; AG: Adam Gilchrist.
SG: We missed a golden chance to equal the series.
AG: Yeah, we too missed a golden chance to go up 2-0 in the series.
SG: No, you did not.
AG: Yes, we did.
SG: On second thoughts, maybe you did. Our batsmen were tired, Warne was hitting the bull and it was a crumbling pitch.
AG: Actually, I would say, you had a better chance. I mean …with 10 wickets in hand and only 210 runs to get. If that`s not easy, then what is?
SG: Am confused.
SG: Was it good that it rained? Or was it bad?
AG: I don`t care as long as I get an extra day`s break. They did not cut 20 % from our salaries. What about you?
SG: No idea yet. In India, we go to the ATM only between the 30th to the 5th of next month and withdraw all the money.
AG: What is an ATM?
SG: Don`t you have them in Australia? In India we have these steel boxes on street corners, inside which one guy sits and gives you the amount you want…that is after we prove our identity with your ATM card.
AG: Wow mate. We don`t have anything like this. We have something that we call Bank Cash Machines.
SG: We don`t have them here.
AG: Maybe coz, you don`t have the technology yet.
