“The entire Pakistani nation thanks South Africa.”

“Don’t be sarcastic, I mean it’s not as if the South Africans made the Covid19 variant in a lab, granted that Trump accused the Chinese of…..”

“Right that reminds me boring is back – Biden doesn’t make good copy while Trump, even while he is brooding in Mar-a-Lago with the Trump clan….”

“Agreed and don’t forget in spite of record wins the popularity of other non-boring leaders is way down – take Boris Johnson and Macron….”

“One question: do you reckon The Khan is boring?”

“For your information we may still lose the test match….”

“The laws of hospitality demand….”

“No sir it is the laws of playing bad cricket!”

“Or the other team simply being better!”

“Are you implying Maryam Aurengzeb is far more believable than The Khan’s special assistants put together, all 15 plus of them?”

“Stay on the same page my friend, I was talking cricket.”
