Cup camera: Indian players 'Stumped'
As a cricket fan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni could never get an autograph of a celebrated player and there's only one cricketer whose signature India's captain would like to treasure. You got it: his teammate, the legendary Sachin Tendulkar.
"It is not hard to guess; it is one and only Sachin Tendulkar," Dhoni replied, when asked, at a book launch function in Bangalore, whose autograph he would like to have.
Dhoni launched a book containing pictures, caricatures and autographs of his World Cup teammates.
The book, titled Stumped, is brought out by cricketcaricatures.com and would be up for sale, only through website purchase, in a week's time.
India off-spinner Harbhajan Singh received the first copy of the book from Dhoni in the presence of Virat Kohli and Piyush Chawla, who were present at the function at the team hotel.
The caricatures have been made by Shijo Varghese of Bangalore and Andy Zaltzman, an acclaimed stand-up comedian since 1999 and also Britain's most infantile satirists.
