Mohali: As Kings XI Punjab’s descent down the points table continues, several fans have wondered where the South African batsman David Miller is this year. Despite the team suffering from a weak middle order, the team management has refused to pick the big hitter who has played only 2 games this year scoring 50 runs at an average of 50. Miller has been an integral part of the Kings XI team in the past but has struggled to break in to the playing XI this year as Aaron Finch has been preferred to him despite Finch’s string of low scores.
Now we finally have discovered the reason for this team selection thanks to our sources inside the Kings XI dugout. Reportedly, Miller failed to laugh, or even crack a smile, at one of the numerous PJs that Sehwag keeps telling and this has resulted in his removal from the playing XI.
At a team meeting earlier in the season, Sehwag said when you go to meet a girl, it is Mill+Her= Miller. While everyone else started chuckling at this fantastic wordplay by Sehwag, Miller didn’t even smile angering Sehwag who takes a lot of pride in his poor jokes. As per eyewitnesses, Aaron Finch started rolling on the floor laughing after hearing this joke.
Such has been Sehwag’s anger that Miller never played a game again even though the team continues to struggle and is on the brink of elimination from the tournament.
As per sources, Miller is now trying to construct some jokes to please Sehwag and is likely to tweet them before the next game.
