That is distinctly bad luck. Proof of the unpredictablility of Cricket perhaps. Better luck next time. :)

Hope so, mate. But Akmal proved his mettle. Got to give him that.

He won this bat for his team.:D

It's not a patch on the record. :)

Do you think the Colossus had a Cricket bat to hand? :confused:

When a record is held by a fellow countryman it becomes common.

This 21-footer is symbolic as a bat of peace.

It would be nice if someone tried to re-erect the Colossus.

They are bringing the Bamiyan Buddha back to life, aren't they?

As it stands he will open the batting with Andrew Strauss when the Rest of the World takes on the Australians.



The method in Sehwag's madness.

Let's hope that both can stay in good form till the rest of the world match.

As for the Colossus, should it be right handed or left handed? And should it be playing any particular stroke? Cover drive paerhaps. And obviously it shouldn't be on Rhode Island. Outside Lord or the SCG perhaps. Even Calcutta as a monument to the 2001 test there. :eek: ;) :eek:

Warney defects! 15 years too late of course but no matter. I can only pray that he becomes a specialist spin coach with the ECA. :)

"I like it over there, my family enjoy going to Spain," Warne, 35, said.



What next? A Spanish cricket team?:D

The Colossus with a cricket bat would be nice next to the Statue of Liberty.;)

Spanish Cricket seems to be fairly dead. Estonian cricket on the other hand in blossoming into something very strange. :confused:

On second thoughts, could the Colossus be bowling a Brett, I mean a Beamer at the SoL. :eek:

All Gods need statues so that you can focus on them while you pray that you get your backfoot cover drive right.:D

Eh? Warney doing a Mike Gatting? Blimey. :D

But, on a sader note, Kevin Pieterson is losing his mind. :(

And his passion for living in England is equally enthusiastic: "I love the country, I love the people, I love all the players, I love the management," he says. The man is clearly suffering from delusions. :(:eek:;)

"People who have played for England have always been born all over the place. I guess the only issue now is the timing. The England team is just getting good and people probably want the team to be Anglo-Saxon to its boots," says Greig, interviewed in the same issue of the magazine.



He is still caught up in that "We will make 'em grovel" mindset.

Where was Tony Greig when England was captained by Nasser Hussain? What is wrong with Solanki or any of the other Asians who play for England?

Pieterson must be nuts.

I hope Ian Botham talks some sense into him. If Beefy cant do it nobody can.

Grieg needs to be informed that England have only come good because of those who were born all over the place. Nass. Stroussy. Pieterson. Fletcher and so on. It's a good thing for sure.

344/6. Good going. :)
