Oore kai kotti sirichudham

Takes the oft-repeated cliched caption of this post to a whole new level doesn't it?

From Left-to-Right:
Vaanga boss! Ivanga epovume ipdi than
- Strauss
Iniku madhyanam meals oda mysore pak poduvangala - Ponting
Hayyo Hayyo - Flintoff
Kai pulla kanakka etti paakra - Anderson

Omitted characters have too innocuous an expression to feature in the list above.

The Aussie camaraderie has always been the stuff of legends. I'm sure some of you have heard about the Tu Tu Main Main sturggle in the Johnson household.


This picture shows the entire team consoling Mitchell Johnson right after he got an SMS while on field, stating that his mother had knocked his kick-boxing girl friend out cold.

Imaginary dialogues might include :

Johnson : Pch... Oru quarter sarayathukaga oru saaraya kadaye vaanga koodadhu.
Clarke : Panesar wicket kooda edukka mudiyaliye unaku tensionave illaya. Nenju pada padanu achikala
Ponting mumbling to himself: budhan, vyazhan, velli... iniku sure'a vadagari dhan idliku. sabbba.

Acknowledgments:
1. The worst ever australian team put together for the ashes.
2. My new room mates for pointing out the first pic to me.

P.S:
FYI the first potaa was taken during this Ashes when the players were waiting for the third umpires ruling which as you can very clearly see gave Ponting out. In one of the greatest captures of ephemeral emotions, this one was taken right after the english players knew about the decision and 'just' before Ponting has realised this. Like I said, gr8 piece of photography!
