The gentleman's game does not take scandal well. Every time someone is caught fixing, the entire world of cricket stops, stares, cries silently, and leaves. Sreesanth and company are the latest to be implicated in a spot fixing scandal, bringing an end to the dominance of the Pakistanis in this area. And the entire country is baying for Sreesanth's blood; he is not the most popular cricketer in the world right now, not by a long chalk.
Which is why we want to come out in public support of this stalwart of Indian cricket. After all, what proof do we have that he is guilty? Just a lot of police evidence, is all. Here is conclusive proof that the man is, in fact, completely innocent.
1. 13 runs per over isn't bad for Sreesanth: The entire case against him is founded on the fact that he gave 13 runs - willingly - in the second over of an IPL match. But everyone who knows Sreesanth knows that an over where he gives only 13 runs is the equivalent of a maiden over for him. He was last a good bowler when Australia was still winning World Cups.
2. Tucking in a towel isn't the worst fashion mistake he made: Sreesanth brought to the world of cricket such good-looking innovations as the double headband, the slapped child, and the popped collar. If we're saying that a tucked-in towel signifies that he was spot-fixing, we should first punish him for his other fashion crimes.
3. Harbhajan hasn't slapped him in 2013: Years ago, Bhajji slapped Sreesanth for the comparatively minor crime of laughing at a match result. Today, Sreesanth is allegedly fixing matches, and Bhajji hasn't even touched him. Isn't that because he's actually innocent?
4. RR is playing really well: So Sreesanth's alleged fixing has clearly had no effect. If he was in DD or PWI, now...we'd have said, hang him!
5. His behaviour never changed: A man who was betraying his team, state and country would naturally be a little jumpy. But Sreesanth was the same slightly irritating bowler throughout IPL 6 that he's always been.
6. Having links with bookies is no evidence of crime: It's a very good argument in favour of a crime having been committed, yes, but not proof positive, not at all. Maybe all his friends just happen to have links with Dawood, right?
7. His father supports him: And says that his son would not do anything in a wrong manner. And we're all sure that parents would never be biased in favour of their children, would they?

R...Rajkumar is bad. We don’t wish to spend too much time on using words to explain how bad it is because it is movies like this which prove that every second of your life is precious. Spending it on R...Rajkumar is a huge mistake. Right from the inexplicable use of fullstops in the title to the insanity that went into writing the dialogues, R...Rajkumar had us thinking about all the bad things that happened in our lives, and how they actually become good when compared to whatever it was that Prabhu Dheva was attempting.
As the economy keeps inflating, so do Bollywood collections. In no time, they’ll each be making the equivalent of the cost of one onion! We predict that the upcoming Dhoom 3 will make 300 crore. Here’s why:
Following elections in Delhi yesterday, exit polls point to the fact that the Congress is going to lose, and pretty badly. What a surprise. Not. Considering the Congress’ performance over the past few months, we’re sure pretty much ANYONE could have beaten them. Here are a few examples:
It's December, and that means we are in the holy month when Rajinikanth was born. On December 12, the man will turn 63, and his trillions of fans are
This week, we are gearing up to watch Prabhu Dheva’s next outing on the silver screen, ‘R…Rajkumar’ (RR). Starring Shahid Kapoor, who hasn’t exactly had the best career run in the past few years, and Sonakshi Sinha, the film looks promising. Here are a few tips for you to make sure you’re well-prepared for the film:
Yesterday was the season premiere of the fourth edition of Koffee with Karan, and it sure didn’t disappoint. Salman Khan, who was a guest on the first episode, claimed to be a virgin (he may as well have told us that pigs fly – there’s a higher probability of that actually being true)
Bullett Raja is authentic, fun, sometimes funny, violent. Yes, it has its flaws, but which movie doesn't? We found it to be a good addition to its genre, and well worth a light weekend watch. So now, we commemorate those instances when it was unintentionally funny with our LOL-scar awards:
