Gautam Gambhir, playing only in his second test was notout on 85 when play ended yesterday. When asked about the approaching milestone of a 100, he told the media that he will dedicate it to his nani – grand mother.
I thought, isn’t he talking too soon? He is playing only his third inning. His first two were completely forgettable. Talking big boosts your confidence, but I thought this was being over confident. (Learned from roommate Sehwag, perhaps?) I didnt pray to God to teach him a lesson, but he got one alright – he got out at 96. Hope it teaches him to be humble.
Be humble, guys – Think high. But talk low, so that the fall is tolerable.
‘Fly low, so that the fall is tolerable’ is a quote from Richard Bach’s Jonathan Livingston Seagull
