"Slow Bangalore Passenger"

Stumbled across this somewhat whimsical tribute to Indian cricketers from days gone by - a fairly entertaining read. The author is clearly a very casual cricket fan, but his sense of humour is at times delectably biting, so well worth a read and a chuckle.

It's hard to be sure whether Venkatesh Prasad was overrated or underrated, but either which way, calling him "The Slow Bangalore Passenger that is currently broken down at Palakkad Station," by way of contrast to "The Rawalpindi Express" cannot fail to elicit a smile in even his most ardent fan.
