King Googlyan is back in the mid-day office to predict the final ODI between India and West Indies in Thiruvananthapuram, will the royal lemur's prediction be accurate or will he fail? Read to know more
After missing his prediction mark in the 2nd ODI between India and West Indies (King predicted India win and the match was a tie), King Googlyan once again did the disappearing act and was untraceable for the 3rd and 4th ODI. This did not go down well with mid-day.com and the online media portal as punishment deducted Googlyan's monthly allowance. Now the King has to buy his breakfast and also pay for his transportation to commute for covering the matches.
King Googlyan's version: While he did not have answers for why he could not do predictions for the 3rd and 4th ODI, King Googlyan pleaded his case saying that he had gone to watch the 4th ODI in Mumbai in a bid to predict the ODI series' outcome, but he got conned.
According to 'your highness,' he was contacted by two locals, who he had befriended during his drinking night out at a shady bar in Grant Road, Read Here The duo promised the king that they had the costliest VIP tickets of Wankhede Stadium at a throwaway price only for him so that he could enjoy the action between India vs West Indies match from the exclusive seating area, which they said was away from the crowd.
Though, King Googlyan did not have enough money to buy the ticket, the offer was too good to let go and the royal lemur's ego was too big to sit with regular humans in the regular stands, so he went to a gold shop and mortgaged his 12-carat gold necklace and bought the VIP ticket from the duo and reached Wankhede stadium an hour prior to the start of the match.
An hour passed and the King was still seated all alone in Wankhede with no sign of players or spectators when he realised something was amiss. A nervous King finally located the watchman and asked him why there was no one at the ground yet, the guard, who was busy watching squirrels fight on the pitch, looked at the royal lemur in an irritated manner and replied that everyone knew that the match had been shifted to the Brabourne Stadium, which was a couple of blocks away.
The King realised that there was still 5 minutes remaining for the first ball to be bowled at the Brabourne, so a determined King Googlyan decided to brave the heat and dashed towards the Brabourne stadium to watch the match. King Googlyan reached the VIP entrance security gate of the Brabourne stadium a minute before the scheduled start and was excited that he made it.
But to his dismay, the security at the entrance saw that the ticket and shooed the King away saying that the ticket was of Wankhede and not Brabourne, and thus the royal lemur was out of the ground before the match started.
Feeling cheated, dejected and hungry after running a 800-metre marathon (King's version) from Wankhede to Brabourne, the King looked around for options. An interesting food stall at the corner of the road called Agarkar's Bombay Ducks attracted his attention. The royal lemur, who has a liking for tasty ducks was surprised to see Ajit Agarkar behind the stall serving hot Bombay ducks. Thus King Googlyan spent the evening at Agarkar's food stall, listening to Agarkar's story of how and why he started the food stall business after retirement.
Private message for King Googlyan
While your highness was busy relishing Bombay ducks with Ajit Agarkar at the latter's food stall, Rohit Sharma (162) and Ambati Rayadu (100) helped India register a mammoth 224-run win in the fourth ODI in Mumbai.
After presenting his case, the King asked the mid-day.com team to reconsider the punishment for his absence and atleast give back his breakfast allowance facility, which the mid-day team refused. A dejected King packed his bags and headed to Kerala for the final ODI at Thiruvanathapuram.
