The Aussie Best In Show

It was like watching a scene when the dog owner accepts winning breed in Best In Show, the brilliant Crufts-style mockumentary.

As the ICC Trophy is handed over to Ricky Ponting (read Nutley's earlier post here), a menial conversation takes place between two Indian television presenters as they fill time by describing the final moments on the presentation stage in Mumbai...

"OK... the president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India being pushed. Boy, he's not going to like that too much at all."
Read the Sydney Morning Herald's version of events and you can watch the descriptive You Tube clip as India's cricket chief Sharad Pawar wanders off stage to give Australia some limelight. From an Indian persective, the Daily News has its own editorial.
