Sania Mirza to replace Rahul Dravid for Mohali test

Sania MirzaChennai. The consistent poor performance by Indian batsman Rahul Dravid has finally got the better of him. BCCI selectors have announced that Dravid will not be playing the second test match against England in Mohali. He would be replaced by hitherto tennis player Sania Mirza, who would be making her international test debut on Friday without having played a single first class cricket match.

“The wall has developed serious cracks and needs to be amended. We have decided to rest Dravid and allow him to gather all his bricks to rebuild himself for the New Zealand tour. We decided to try out a new face at Mohali and Sania was a unanimous choice.” BCCI chief selector Kris Srikkanth informed in a press conference organized after India’s historic victory in the Chennai test match.

But reliable sources confirm that selectors had to take this decision under compulsion as Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni had threatened to commit suicide if Sania Mirza was not selected. Dhoni is reported to believe that presence of Sania will help realize large attendance of crowd in Mohali, which otherwise might be very low as compared to that in Chennai. Dhoni believed that crowd support played a very vital role in India’s magnificent victory in the first test in Chennai.

Dhoni is also reported to have argued that during IPL, Mohali was happier to see Preity Zinta than Yuvraj Singh, and hence Sania would be a better choice over Dravid for the venue. He further argued that nowhere in the rulebook it was written that a BCCI team can comprise only of male members.

When Faking News tried to contact Dhoni for his reaction, he termed the whole affair as ‘disgusting’ and refused to comment. He also slammed those elements of selection committee who leaked the news to organizations like Faking News. Indian captain told that he’d let his captaincy and performance do the talking and hoped that Sania will help India seal the series against England.

“Sania had once told that if she was a boy, she would have been playing cricket, it’s her chance to live that moment. I’m sure she will shine in India’s win in Mohali.” Dhoni expressed confidence.

Sania Mirza too expressed happiness over her inclusion in the team and told that she was eagerly waiting to get on field and hit Flintoff over the boundary. She hoped that India won and Flintoff didn’t get to take his shirt off as it might not be liked by clerics. She otherwise thought her cricket career would be less controversial than the tennis one. She has been out of tennis ground due to injuries and poor performance, apparently an outcome of such controversies, recently.

“The best part of the game is that I’d be sporting full trousers and shirt for the game and most parts of my body would be covered up unlike in Tennis. Furthermore there would be ten other players to share blame if something goes wrong unintentionally.” Sania told Faking News on phone from Hyderabad.

Faking News forgot to take the reaction of Rahul Dravid on the whole issue.
