Inzys too good for us. Pakistan will probably be 6 down by stumps. Razzaq is doing a Chris Tavere impression. 6 off 44. :crazy:

Mr Big does it again. A 50 or better in 9 consecutive innings against England. I know Madonna is an Anglophilic sort of person, but this lard mountain takes it to new levels. :Obmar:

He and Yousuf are the Bearded Wounders, they just love the English bowling. The ODIs are going to be great fun. Bringing Goughie back isn't a long-term solution, but we could hardly get worse with him around again.

The Israelis treat our Tennis players as they do the United Nations. :cry:

As for the Godly Game, well, we might as well just send the A-team or the under-19s to Australia. :anger:

Afridi being allowed to bat at Lord's is like a free jazz improviser coming on in the middle of the Proms at the Albert Hall. You can just imagine the MCC members grumbling "Oh I say, chaps, this really isn't on." :lol: The attrition rate of fast bowlers means that everyone will have to play like him if we're going to get a result in any of the Tests.:goodbad:

What next, a hitsquad with AKs to take out the English openers?

"Afridi was struck on the upper part of his right elbow by a member of the Lancashire groundstaff".

Violence follows England wash-out

Fans are led away by police after violence erupts
Serious crowd trouble followed the abandonment of the fifth one-day match between India and England in Guwahati.
The 20,000 sell-out crowd had waited for several hours without seeing a single ball bowled when the decision to call the game off was taken.

Some battled with the police and threw bricks onto the outfield, prompting police to fire tear gas into the crowd and at least 12 were injured.

The teams had been whisked away by an armed escort before the trouble began.

Nikul Gogoi, senior superintendent at the ground, said the police had tried to restrain themselves in controlling the situation.

"When the tear gas was fired, that was the minimum force (necessary) to disperse the mob because people had become very unruly," he told the BBC Asian Network.

WTF? Stale news.:D

No sooner have the Indian team reassembled after an off-season that lasted less than three weeks and they're off again, to an undisclosed location for three days of team-bonding away from the scrutiny of the media and fans. The venue, most likely a defence establishment or a spa in the countryside outside Bangalore, has been kept secret even from the players, most of whom were expected to reach the team hotel in Bangalore by 6 pm on Tuesday.



Top Secret :angel:

Recently I had a dream where I was asking Si Jones if Yasir Arafat can play in the 2nd Test. Jones has deep links with the cricket illuminati and will do what he can I'm sure.

The secret Indian team retreat is especially sinsiter.:wonder:

It's all go. Sri Lanka put on highest thirst wicket partnership in history. Cookie gets another hundred. And the Demi-God celebrates his 70th. :cool:

Batting for over 100 overs is thirsty work for anyone for sure. Understating the Proteas' problems just a bit, Cricinfo states: "Facing Muralitharan in the second innings is going to be a tough ask."

So, what if you tended to doze off during geography class at school later that day? After all, you knew better than most people where Barbados was and the exact location of the greatest cricketer's house on that little island. It was simple. Sobers was god. But, what a god!



Happy Birthday, Sir Gary Sobers :kowt:

Nice to see Harmy back.

We saw two of the bravest sights in cricket at Old Trafford on Thursday; Steve Harmison making the ball leap round the batsman's armpits and Monty Panesar gambolling down the pitch in a frenzy of celebration.



Pak on the backfoot

:Party:

PS. Sobers Magic
