Sachin Tendulkar and Sourav Ganguly, now pretty old guys, 75 and 76
are sitting on a park bench feeding pigeons and talking about
do every day.
Sachin turns to Sourav and says, "Do you think there's cricket in
Ganguly thinks about it for a minute and replies, "I dunno. But let's
deal: if I die first, I'll come back and tell you if there's cricket in
and if you die first, you do the same." They shake on it and sadly, a
later, poor Sachin passes on.
One day soon afterward, Ganguly is sitting there feeding the pigeons by
himself when he hears a voice whisper, "Sourav... Sourav!"
Ganguly responds, "Sachin! Is that you?"
"Yes it is, Sourav," whispers Sachin's ghost.
Ganguly, still amazed, asks, "So, is there cricket in heaven?"
"Well," says Sachin, "I've got good news and bad news."
"Gimme the good news first," says Ganguly.
Sachin says, "Well... there is cricket in heaven."
Ganguly says, "That's great! What news could be bad enough to ruin
Sachin sighs and whispers, "You and me, we are going to open the
innings on next
