Will KP bring down the Wall?
Bangalore: Rahul Dravid may not fit into the scheme of things in the Royal Challengers team, if hints by team’s owner liquor baron Vijay Mallya are anything to go by.
Having successfully acquired Kevin Pietersen for a whopping $1.55m at the IPL auction in Goa, Mallya strongly indicated that he would not mind a change at the helm. He told the media, “Rahul Dravid is our captain as of today. We have not discussed captaincy yet (for the forthcoming second season) and we will discuss it. Kevin Pietersen certainly could be a strong contender, but there are others as well, so we will take a call.”
MY QUESTION What does the phrase "take a call" mean in the above?
It appears they are saying "we will consider the matter". If so, then "take a call" in this sense is perhaps an Anglo-Indian idiom. In Canada, and almost certainly in the USA, the comment sounds strange.
