It would seem that Samit Patel is fully committed to maintaining his lardy physique.
As Andy Flower said:
“He was chosen on the condition that he would improve his physical state to be in consideration for this squad of 15. He hasn’t done that.”
Good work, Samit. That’s commitment. Don’t let a World Cup place deter you from your ultimate goal of ‘remaining pretty fat’.
It reminds us of when Mark Cosgrove was told he could get as fat as he liked until it got ‘ridiculous’. Only it’s better than that, because Samit is more of a maverick.
Samit doesn’t have express approval to do this to himself, but he’s doing it anyway. Hang the consequences. Living the dream.
