A Crushed Big Toe

There’s a Neo Sports ad out just now that might interest you.

Big hoarding, dominated by an image of a foot with a crushed big toe, and blood leaking out.

The tag line reads: Last year, Brett Lee’s Yorkers didn’t always hit the wicket. Our turn to return the favour.

That’s the best they can do to promote what could be an intriguing Test series?

Well, I suppose juvenile bluster is an improvement on ‘Pakraman’-style warfare metaphors. But does anyone really need to promote this series?

Also, how will our fast bowlers bear the weight of such expectation? The most famous attempted yorker in India’s history turned out to be quite a disaster
