COMMENTARY BOX – Blissfully unaware that it still had over a tenth of its mass to gain, the then 105-word painfully long Ramiz Raja sentence, while still in the process of completion, had another 12 words to go.
Visibly upset, after being duly informed at the sidelines of the cricket coverage that it was still being forced to grow for no intelligible or logical reason, the Ramiz Raja sentence appeared to have lost all hope by the time it had reached 111 words.
“Oh yay triple one, a Nelson. I hope Nelson puts an end to this, if Ramiz does not,” the Ramiz Raja sentence expressed while talking to itself, still searching for the elusive full-stop.
Speaking to the media after its much awaited culmination, the Ramiz Raja sentence said there were multiple moments during its formation that it felt on the verge of completion.
“I kept telling myself, ‘now there’s a perfectly good time for a full-stop’, ‘no, no, no need for a big word,’ or ‘yes, the pause was long, but it doesn’t need anything fancy,’ but he just wouldn’t shut up,” the sentence told the media.
