After being unceremoniously dumped by Australian selectors from the One-Day International squad, Ricky Ponting has been picked to play for Team India. According to sources, the deal materialised during a late-night conference call involving Ponting, Board of Control for Cricket in India President N Srinivasan, and chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth, after the Australian legend agreed to their only non-negotiable condition that he be available for all Chennai Super Kings matches in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

“BCCI rocks! I’m told they never drop legends from the squad, especially when they are on the verge of achieving milestones,” said an elated Ponting, who has also rekindled his hopes of scoring a century of hundreds in international cricket.

The Tasmanian, in keeping with his 100% commitment to the team’s cause, has now gone one step further by ‘indigenising’ his last name to “Pandian” and shifting base to Chennai.

“Chennai is a lot like Australia - warm and sunny throughout the year, friendly people, awesome beaches, and run by a fantastic lady called Amma. Loving it, mate. I mean… machan!” exclaimed Ricky Pandian. “What’s more, I am told Chennai dudes don’t even get skin cancer despite spending all the time under the sun. Can’t wait to get a tan on Marina Beach and ogle at hot Chennai chicks,” said the Aussie, who has been advised to refer to Michael Clarke as ‘Naikutti’ rather than ‘Pup’ by his Tamil tutor, ‘Petrol Bunk’ Sekar.
