The English Cricket Board has announced the sale of the movie rights to the present series in India to Whirled’s End Entertainments Limited for an undisclosed sum believed to be in the region of 1 billion green backs.
Gaming and merchandizing
rites rights should see this figure swell to the 1.5 billion mark.
Said producer Third Man, “The idea came when Sachin Tendulka was captured on the cameras watching Virat Kohli in the Champion’s League.”
The slow car crash that has been England’s ODI series in India blocked in the plot for him.
“You see, there’s this old coach Andy Flower trying hard to ‘fit-in’ in his young team’s badass world. He’s trying hard to ‘dude-up’ from ‘aiiiyyyo’ to‘yo!’” Third Man trevealed to the assembled press pack.
“While Flower tries every trick in the book to get through to his side, get ‘dude-ified’ and ‘up his coolness quotient’. His squad had given up on him .. just when the coach-team duo hit a deadlock; Flower strikes gold when he designs one hell of a game.. Yo Kriket England.”
“Finally it all starts falling in place … they beat Australian Down Under, Sri Lanka and then India at home as the team scales the top of the world …only to find themselves a couple of months later in the middle of a crash… not just a hard drive crash but a slow motion car crash of a crash that would drive them to a disaster and make their lives go – kaboom!!!”
“All hell breaks loose when the team that was meant to be played with … starts playing them… when they encounter the super heroes Kohl.1, Dhon.1 and … Ra.One NA. … and the fur begins to fly.
Don’t miss it when it comes to a cinema near you.
Commenting on the cash injection that the Board will receive, a beleaguered spokesperson for the ECB said, “Every cloud has a silver lining.”
Or as Third Man explained, “It’s all in the game.”
