Universal Ass. Against Short Pitch Bowling has issued a press statement that they will be on non-strike for the entire Intolerant People’s League season. This came after month long talks between UAASPB and ISeeSee concluded without any decision. UAASPB leader Short-Ball Na-Daina informed the press that they had raised certain demands to ISeeSee including

  • Short-Ball = No-Ball: All balls pitched shorter than good length to be called No-Ball
  • Shortening fast bowlers run-up: Run-up for fat bowlers to be restricted to 5 steps
  • Life imprisonment for bowling bouncers

ISeeSee refused to agree on these terms as per their announcement yesterday. Nagraj, InSane Watt are some of the other noted members from UAASPB, who will join Na-Daina in the season long strike by remaining on non-strike against all potential abusers of short pitch bowling.

A gamer was seriously “injured” after “being in a fix” for close to three & a half hours yesterday. It was reported that he was watching an IPL match when this happened. He was playing fantasy IPL game and he had chosen a perfect XI with 6 players from one team and 5 from the other. However, as the match started he got into the fix of indecision as “what to expect” from the next ball. Since most of the time it was his fantasy team’s batsman facing against his fantasy team bowler. There were numerous occasions where this pain peaked like-

  • Fantasy batsman at 49 trying a six against fantasy bowler with figures of 3.5-0-39-0, which is controversially caught at boundary by fantasy fielder and decision goes to third umpire
  • Power player faces fantasy bowler on a Hat-trick

Doctors have issued an advisory to fantasy league gamers to avoid choosing the perfect XI and instead make random selections to keep their anxiety under control.
