This Cricket Team Intentionally Letting Akhilesh Yadav Win Is So Goddamn Hilarious

What is going on here?

Posted on

On March 20, Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav played a T20 cricket match against some IAS officers.

CM11 vs IAS11. A tough cricket match, yesterday in Lucknow.

Yadav's team won the game by 1 run. He himself scored 65 runs, was declared the Man Of The Match and also given the Best Cricketer award.

While it sounds like an amazing game, what the headlines didn't mention was that the IAS officers were doing their best to let their boss score.

Some of their tactics included bowling deliberately awful deliveries and refusing to chase the ball.

If you don't believe it, this was a player's reaction when he (unintentionally) got Yadav out.

And while batting, the IAS officers needed just 4 runs to win off the last 2 overs, at which point they decided that this was a good time to channel their inner Rahul Dravid and defend everything coming their way.

They literally scored just 2 runs off the final 12 deliveries.

Even the NDTV India anchor introducing the report couldn't help but smirk at what had happened.
