Surely every Cricket fan gets bored at some point of time watching his sport with the same sort of commentary like “What a Shot” “It goes for a boundary  “Well taken catch” “Deceived the batsman really well” and so on. It’s about time we might need to make some additions to the commentary cliche vocabulary and possibly changing the account to what a fan desires.

We already have a No-Ball called Steven Finn no-ball i.e if a bowler rattles the stumps at non-striker end in his run up. That ball will be counted as a no-ball. Similarly here we have some suggestions by renaming things in Cricket, the sports & it’s commentary becomes more interesting.

Straight Drive: “That was a perfectly driven Sachin Drive”.

Cover Drive: “That was driven through Lara region”.

Square Cut: “That cut had Dravid’s perfection”.

Starting the Team’s innings with Boundary: “He began the innings in Sehwag style”.

Upper Cut: “He guided the ball over keeper playing the Baap-Beta Shot”.

Spinner looks like Chucking: “The way he is bowling, he looks like a Sri Lankan spinner”.

Hook shot: “He is an expert in playing the Ponting shot”.

Diving like a bird to catch: “He did a Jonty to catch it”.

Helicopter Shot: “He clears the long on comfortably with an MSD shot”.

Dismissing a batsman with Yorker: “He released a Malinga on his legs to clean him up”.

Been Run-out: “He has been sent back like Inzamam-Ul-Haq”.

Troubling batsman with a Doosra: “He deceived him with his Saqlain Mushtaq”.

Getting out to Short ball: “He got out like Suresh Raina”.

Running like Cheetah to take a catch: “He ran like Gary Sobers to catch the impossible”.

Reverse Sweeping for boundaries: “He is sweeping it like AB de Villiers”.

If bowler conceding too many runs: “The bowler is doing a Dinda”.

Getting out for stupid shot: “He gets out after playing a Rohit Sharma shot”.

Random appealing which aren’t out: “He is having a Sangakkara sort of Day in the field”.

Getting out on Duck: “He grabs a Chris Martin (Tests)”.

                                  “He grabs a Shahid Afridi (Limited overs)”.

Smashing the bowler down the track: “The shot he played was as aggressive as Ganguly”.

Sixer crossing 100 M barrier: “The ball has been launched into Henry Gayle’s orbit”.

Catch been dropped: “The catch has been put down like Akmal”.

Disclaimer: These suggestions are based on Fan views. Though, some of those can actually be useful and this is just to be taken in a light hearted way.
