The Indian men’s cricket team have taken the drastic step to stand in a ‘straight line’ before the commencement of the one day series in Australia in support of the BLM movement. Speaking to reporters the captain Virat Kohli said that the entire team decided to stand in a straight line with the players of ‘darker’ complexion at the front of the line. “ We are all for these ‘darker’ players to be in the forefront. That means our Tamil Nadu player, T. Natarajan, (who else?) would be in the front of the line.” Our team had a discussion after looking at press reports that the Australians will be ‘standing in a barefoot circle’ to support the BLM movement. So, we spent 5 minutes discussing this issue and came to this conclusion.

On asked if he agreed with the captain’s decision, Indian men’s cricket team coach said, “ Absolutely, I back him 100%. The captain has made the correct decision.”

(Note: This is a work of satire, all of the above is ‘absolutely true’ if we are living in the matrix)
