Bhagwat Chandrasekhar on God and equality

Sunaad Raghuram writes about a charming encounter with Bhagwat Chandrasekhar, in which Chandra tells him:
[I]f God existed there should have been equality in this world. Every bowler should have been as good as me or Warne or Kumble or anyone else. Why are some people more endowed than others? Why are some people more fortunate than others? I just don’t know…
Well, I'm no believer in God, and I'm wary of the kind of equality Chandra speaks about. If God did exist, though, I'd say that he's pretty bored with us, and has left us alone and gone off to do something better.

Now, what could that be?
