Intel-X Tech owner My Nobody welcomed the players on the 1st day and gave away 1.6 GHZ 32GB HDD/256MB RAM Desktop to everyone.
In the meantime, the technician was finally able to connect the projector with Intel-X computer. Mr Nobody was about to start-off his presentation but he made the mistake of his life. He “refreshed” the desktop, which took the computer into a 15 minutes limbo.
Finally the presentation was visible on the projector. It had a few numbers which were difficult to understand so everyone eagerly awaited what Mr Nobody had to say.
He starts- “Guys! Hope you are having fun. We have made the biggest investment of our company history this year. Which is YOU.”
He points towards the audience.
“My only ask from you is to do your best and don’t worry about the results.”
“We should follow the non-violent path which our state stands for. Hence we have decided that we should refrain from hitting sixes. NO SIXES!”
Everyone is taken aback.
As they are wondering, Mr Nobody continues- “But we should aim for 600 runs in every match.”
Short Ball Na-Daina stands up in protest- “Firstly, 600 runs in a T20 game is next to impossible. Secondly, it can’t be done without hitting sixes.”
Nobody- “Let’s not start the discussion with excuses. Anyways we should not get into the minor nitty-gritty of how to achieve the task right now. We have 5 full days to figure it out. Let’s first acknowledge the task and start working towards it. Nothing is impossible.”
Hotch Potch, the coach, joins Na-Daina- “But Mr Nobody, 600 runs mean a scoring rate of 5 runs per ball. It can’t be achieved without hitting sixes.”
Nobody- “Hotch, you are hired as a coach and not as an analyst. Let’s not get bogged down with the numbers. And don’t mind, 5 is anyways less than 6, so I don’t see why it can’t be done.”
Hotch Potch and Na-Daina look at each other in utter disdain but don’t extend the argument.
Nobody- “Also, we shouldn’t lose any wickets and also ensures everyone gets to bat. It’s our philosophy to provide equal opportunity to all.”
Bubble Gum spits out his gum and tries to clarify – “Mate! How will everyone get to bat if we aren’t allowed to lose wickets.”
Nobody- “Gentlemen, I don’t have all the answers. But then, that’s why we have bought you guys.”
All the players go mum as Mr Nobody closes the session.
