QUOTE OF THE WEEK
Since we are taliking about the Lenasians one cannot forget the famous words of one of the most respected Coaches. He groomed Krisna Pather to be the Triathlete and decathlete of the modern Era and enabling Lenz High to dominate the Inter Highs.
Now the lads from Lenz Jigh will probably relate to this one.
Back in the day,with apartheid not enabling us and many talented Indian Sportsman to make quick strides in SCHOOL CRICKET I will reflect on a moment of sharp words by Mr Blikkies Bismilah himself
Lenz seleceted a district team to play one of the other towns.Lenz boasted many cricketing talents and that particular day we went to watch at the Varachia Stadium in Lenz.
Perishaans.Lenz were 10 for three or something like that. Lets call this oke PARESH. Anyway Mr Bismillah in his tone said “PARESH, YOU KNOW BOY,JUST GO IN AND CONSOLODATE THE INNINGS.DONT DO ANYTHING FANCY.JUST STICK AROUND FOR ANOTHER TEN OVERS”
Now our man Peresh goes in and ist ball he hits big and gets caught at midwicket. He duely returns with a sombre look dragging his bat and looking down
Now Mr Bismillah is mad and says the following words in his tone again.He points to a big Oak Tree (Not there any more the Tornado took it away). He says “
“PARESH !COME HERE BOY.WHAT IS THAT?”
Paresh says “A tree Sir”
Mr Bismillah replies” Now Boy !Go to that tree…(Paresh is bemused)
“AND GO BLOODY HANG YOURSELF”
He never spoke to paresh thereafter
*This is a true event.This story was enhanced by a player in that squad that day.Whether he thrilled me about the exact stas I dont know. But its the quote thats important Lol
