I started laughing aloud in my cubicle as I read this from Rediff. This man Sidhu has some sense of humour
Former India batsman Navjot Singh Sidhu says former Pakistan wicketkeeper Moin Khan should be sent to a mental asylum in Amritsar so that he can go and meet him there.
Speaking to rediff.com on Monday after Sachin Tendulkar hit his 39th one-day hundred as India posted 328 in the first One-Day International against Pakistan in Peshawar, the cricketer-turned-Member of Parliament from Amritsar said, “Mad dogs keep barking at the elephant, but the king elephant does not bother about them at all.”
Sidhu was obviously hitting out at Moin, who criticized Tendulkar, after India lost the three-Test series to Pakistan 0-1, saying the decline of the little master has begun.
“Sachin has scored a big hundred and this would be enough to silence his critics in the media as well as those like Moin Khan, who had started writing off the master batsman.
“The man who has scored over 70 hundreds in both forms of the game does not need to be reminded about his class and stature.
“Sachin did the right thing by not responding to such mindless criticism. Instead, he let his bat do the talking. Such comments are made by foolish people only,” Sidhu added.
