As Goes Cricket, So Goes the Indian Economy?

  • Well, it sounds like the Premier League has been trapped LBW (Leg Before Wicket). The LBW rule is designed to prevent the kind of ‘corruption’ that would occur if the batsman could endlessly use only his pads (not the bat), the way and ice hockey goalie does, to block any ball that would otherwise go on take out his wicket. The tricky bit is that umpire has to mentally construct if the blocked ball would have gone on to hit the wicket which is as open to endless controversial as any corruption trial. Think John Edwards.

    If with this much corruption and mismanagement on the part of government Indian economy can still grow at such rates, one cannot help but wonder what could have been possible if the leaders were a little more competent.
