Damn that keeper!!

Michael Clarke came down the pitch, and attempted a shot. Missed it. Nonchalantly ambled back towards the crease. To his utter surprise, the Indians were celebrating, the stumps were broken, the umpire had raised his fingers, and....and....wait a minute...why was his friend Parthiv jumping around!!!??

Wait another minute!! This bloke isn't Parthiv!!! Who is this guy? Where is Parthiv? Why was Pup stumped out? Why didn't they tell him there was a new guy behind the stumps??

What has this world come to if you step out against the Indian spinners, miss it, and are stumped out, Clarke thought.
