Apparently, the news is that the Chennai Super Kings will be gobbling on expensive and exquisite delicacies during their stay in the TC Sheraton Park Hotels and Towers. The chief chef there is busy whipping his team of chefs to prepare ‘no butter or sugar rich diets’; only white meat, protein-rich preparations and lots of fruits and milk.
Not a bad idea, I like the menu, especially keeping in mind the players’ physique and health.
Rumours are rife that Badani and Balaji need to cut down on butter and sugar to retain the permanent position in AIIMS earned by showing their body. After all, people have hardly seen walking, talking and cricket-playing-skeletons. But it’s not Balaji’s mistake, the whole nutrition he intakes goes directly to his teeth.
But as is the diet, the team Chennai Super Kings is also balanced. To counter the lightweights already half of the team already are on the verges of being the next local bear-belly champions or the next Khali(s). Look at the mammoth Hyden. Hydos stands 6ft 2in tall and god knows how broad.
Ntini, Morkel and Gony aren’t very behind either. Dhoni doesn’t measure bad too, only if his height is ignored. By the way, does anyone remember the buzz created in the initial hype created after Dhoni became the captain – he normally drinks two litres of milk everyday? In 2008, he claimed that he had cut down on his milk intake. (Now since the hotel will quench his thirst, one happy female will be Dhoni’s COW. Poor cow was being harassed all these years by Dhoni everyday morning for his milk-fetish. May she rest in peace!)
Each of them is equivalent to two Pathiv Patels. Poor chap (Parthiv) had just got married, I just wonder if people who attended the marriage would have been previously informed that it wasn’t a child marriage; it’s how the groom looks like (even after growing up!). He must have as much milk as possible, but with Dhoni in the team the team is sure to suffer from milk deficiency.
