Farzi Times: After Yo-Yo test, BCCI makes Michael Holding's criticism mandatory to get picked in World Cup 2019 squad

Holding has magic in his criticism that even Indian trains would run on time.

Michael Holding | GETTY

Michael Holding criticized Virat Kohli for his poor record in England, and the Indian skipper scored a hundred in the first Test he played. Then, Holding was after Hardik Pandya for his inability to perform as an all-rounder and Pandya ended up taking his maiden five-wicket haul in Test. That was literally a 'mic-drop' moment for the former West Indies cricketer in the commentary box.

BCCI has now decided to add only those players -- who get criticized by Holding -- directly into the World Cup 2019 squad. This gave Yuvraj Singh a chance to revive his career. But the only problem is, will Yograj Singh let Holding speak against his son?

Reports say Lalit Modi was removed as IPL commissioner because he didn't give Holding his share of money for making the tournament successful. Everyone knows the legendary pacer was one of the biggest critics of IPL.

The craze to get thrashed by Holding is such that soon the corporate world would demand 'Criticized by Michael Holding' on resume enough to give a job.

64-year-old Windies legend Holding would've turned into a 'baba' if he was an Indian. People who aren't getting blessed with kids must have asked him to call them impotent in a raspy voice and *tada* everything sorted.

Some people say Holding rarely criticized Inzamam-Ul-Haq for his running because he feared the Pakistani batsman would go on to beat his countryman Usain Bolt in Olympics. That would have cost Jamaica some prestigious medals in Olympics. Bravo (Not Darren or Dwayne) Holding, Bravo!

But people would lose faith in Holding's 'magic' if he criticizes Rahul Gandhi. Nah! Even him taking a dig at Rahul will not make him the next Prime Minister of India. Well, that is Rahul's talent and here even the ex-cricketer has to bow down to the Prince of Indian Youth, who himself is 48 years old.

Note: The article is a joke like the future of people who took it seriously.
