A fantastic article of how people try to claim the credit for Sachin's 100th 100..Indeed a funny one :mdr1: :mdr1: Congress General Secretary, Digvijaya Singh, who has been keeping a low profile since the Congress rout in the UP Assembly elections, today attempted a strong comeback by crediting Rahul Gandhi for Sachin Tendulkar scoring his 100th 100. â€œShri Rahul ji today made India proud by being the grand-son of the great Indira ji who created Bangladesh, which in turn allowed Shri Tendulkar ji to finally score that 100th 100,â€ said Diggy, flashing the V sign to reporters. Diggy has now been summoned by 10, Janpath to clarify his statement. The veteran Congress leader is keeping his fingers crossed about getting back into the good books of Congressâ€™s first family. â€œLetâ€™s see. 50-50 chance banta hai but I wouldnâ€™t bet on it after getting egg on my face for my UP poll predictions,â€ said a nervous Diggy. Diggyâ€™s statement has left Salman Khurshid devastated. â€œDamn, why didnâ€™t I think of that statement and issue it before he did. Now heâ€™s gonna rise above me in the pecking order,â€ confided Mr Khurshid, whoâ€™s been cogitating hard ever since to come up with a better one. Diggyâ€™s controversial statement however has opened a Pandora â€™s Box of geo-political claims. Namibian President Hifikepunye Pohamba said his family also needs to be feted since Sachin had scored his 34th ODI against a Namibian international cricket team in a WC match. â€œMy great-grandpa, Jingi Mombasa, worked his ass off to secure Namibiaâ€™s independence, man, and more importantly, we occasionally qualify for the World Cup. I hope IPL franchisees take a few Namibian players as a token of appreciation,â€ said Mr Pohamba. Nita Ambani, owner of Mumbai Indians, has promised to look into it. â€œAnything for Sachin, yaa. I have told Mukesh to buy out the entire country if any visa issues arise,â€ cooed Nita. UK Prime Minister, David Cameroon, also jumped into the queue to take credit. â€œHey, donâ€™t forget our little contribution to Sachinâ€™s magnificent record by carving cricket playing countries like Kenya and Zimbabwe out of the British empire,â€ said Mr Cameroon, who however apologized for his country not doing enough to popularize cricket in Burma, another erstwhile British colony. In related news, a diehard Sachin fan, Atul Kasbekar, has filed a case of blasphemy against his IT co-worker, Sujit Nair, for callously remarking that Sachinâ€™s ton cost India the match. â€œWhat a sick statement, yaar. It has hurt my religious sentiments,â€ said Atul, eyes welling up with tears. Justice Shergaonkar of the Mumbai High Court has taken cognizance of the FIR and will commence hearings into the case shortly. â€œPrima facie, it seems to be a hate statement. How can you indirectly blame Sachin for Indiaâ€™s loss, yaar? Freedom of speech does not mean freedom to offend, ok. WTF,â€ caustically observed the Judge, whose BP reportedly shot up after reading Nairâ€™s controversial statement. Pakistan captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, is also despondent that Sachin did not score his 100th 100 against Pakistan. â€œI was soo looking forward to Sachin scoring it against us, and not Bangladesh. Our statistician, Haqeeqat Ahmed Abbasi, tells us that a Sachin century reduces Indiaâ€™s chances of victory by 20%,â€ sniffed Misbah, a tear streaming down his cheeks. â€œDonâ€™t cry, Misbah bhai. According to my daughter, Bangladesh was once called East Pakistan if that is of any consolation to you,â€ noted Shahid Afridi. Misbah now began sobbing uncontrollably.
