Almost did it.
how slightly anti-climatic.
after David Nugent scoring, it would've been a perfect evening of sporting nonsense for Sri Lanka to have got out of that.
Top of the group!
Take that France and Italy!
Malinga got 4 wickets in 4 balls. Amazing. So nearly won the match.
will have to watch the highlights of that.
wheres that prick who was slagging the game off earlier. I'll burn him.
so close to picking Malinga for my fantasy team this week. SO CLOSE :(
i didn't even select him!
so not a complete disaster.
I'm 654th for the phase in the Sky Sports league. Woo!
I can't help but feel that's as good as it's going to get, though.
and I have also got Gibbs. So one of my players hit six sixes in an over, and one got four wickets in four balls. I should win this just for that
I should be banned.
too - I don't care if he's a selfish bastard as he's got me a hatful of points.
is my favourite cricketer bar none. I love his action, even though it's really odd to see the point of release on the tele. Unfortunately he's in my sky team and not my cricketweb one.
So, you love cheating ;-p
it's proven, thus you're now allowed a few degrees of flexibility in the arm.
malinga is ace. so is murali.
SL might be my pet team when england go out in a blaze of indifference.
Northern Ireland of cricket.
is no more of a cheat than Murali, or any other pesky Sri Lankan bowler :)
but the things he can do with a bowl make me go wow. And he plays in the right spirit so I'll let him off.
The worst chuckers in cricket are definately Akhtar and Flintoff
they're fucking scary. I'd hate to have him stare me out. He's a legend though, top cricketer despite the dubious action.
Wasn't half the Pakistan test side banned for chucking a couple of years back?
Pakistan love a cheat they do
understand this thread.
SA were huge favourites going into the final stages of play until malinga took two wickets in as many balls and then took another two in two after taking a short break. in the end it was a close match and SA only had, what, 3 balls to play with.
malinga became the first player to take 4 in 4 and the match will be made into a film later this year with vince vaughn as malinga the swinga and feature Team USA beating the dastardly english in the final..
