Outlook

When the bat whacks the ball with perfect timing
And footwork it is a sixer!
Rukmini, you are Chris Gayle of literature.
Taslima is at best a Sehwag-
Tried to touch a ball
Outside the off stump,
And was out caught behind.

That legend of a bowler was past his prime,
Lost his guile and the googly;
Many a stump had been uprooted in his heydays
Even before the batswoman could retract her foot.

But, sixer is a sixer!
The bowler has been dropped from the team.
