For all we know he may have shaved it off and restarted it.
There's Ian Bells. The original dodgy used car salesman.

The Pakistan coach Bob Woolmer has called for the rules on moving fielders while the ball is being bowled to be clarified before Pakistan and England begin their three-Test series on Saturday.
I remember during the Oz v Eng Twenty20 Trescothick made a signal to Lewis before he started his run. While Lewis was running in Tres walked sideways from slip to a wider position and Martyn guided the ball straight into his hands. I wondered how legal that was (only really noticed it on the replays). I know it's ok to walk in towards the pitch while the bowler is running up. Last spring Dwayne Bravo sometimes did a similar thing to Vaughan while a spinner was bowling, diving across while the ball was bowled, maybe against South Africa or Pakistan.

"Anyway, their quicks will skittle us"
In the last few days some England batters have developed a novel defensive technique in the nets - dive forward and headbutt the ball to prevent being bowled. Geraint is becoming an adept.

We are having torrential rains and freaky climate down in South India and parts of Chennai (Madras to you Poms) are still under knee deep water.
My comp has crashed and I am now posting from one of our internet cafes.
Give the Pakis hell. Harmison seems to have got that breakthrough.
Guess what the Indian team won for beating SL? Rs 5 million.

"Rs 5 million"
Some of it should be donated to a retirement fund for Ganguly so he can spend 5 years writing a racy 1400-page account of his side of the Chappell affair that ended in divorce.
