Cricketing Cliche 24

Feeling the heat.

With Yousuf Youhana and Younis Khan (cliche coming up) stringing together a fine partnership, India could be said to be "feeling the heat". Writers particularly enjoy using this phrase when it's not just a metaphor but also a pun. Yes, it is rather hot and humid in Kolkata, and it is hard for any fielding side, especially their captain, to stay focussed and energetic on a day like this. It's hard for me, too; my longish hair gets all messed up in this sweat and pollution, and I yearn for shampoo as much as the Indian bowlers must be wanting a wicket now. Pakistan doesn't stand between me and my Garnier, of course.
