And Then There Were None !!!
After Team India's poor batting performance against SA in Second ODI
Original Poem- "Ten Little Indians"
Ten little Indians eying Two Forty Nine
Pollock struck early and then there were nine.
Nine little Indian boys never got set;
One played all over and then there were eight.
Eight little Indian boys facing strong eleven;
A bouncer swallowed one and then there were seven.
Seven little Indian boys trying to break the jinx;
One was caught plumb in front and then there were six.
Six little Indian boys struggling to survive;
A tame poke got one and then there were five.
Five little Indian boys chasing a good score;
Incoming ball brushed the glove and Then there were four.
Four little Indian boys drowning in the sea;
A bad shot sent one back and then there were three.
Three little Indian boys had a little clue;
One played too early and then there were two.
Two little Indians trying to get a ton;
A swinging ball caught one and then there was one.
One little Indian boy left all alone;
He inside edged a one..
...and then there were none.
