i want to see centruries from all of our top 6 this weekend
Off to a good start.
wtf. I'm seriously tempted to wander along myself...
It's not gonna happen today though. Maybe Monday...
I'd love to spend my day in the sunshine there. You should go
(He didn't really almost say that)
When I first heard about it, I was ready for a subtle-yet-cutting-edge debate on free speech vs acting professionally etc. Then I saw what he actually said. No way it's offensive, and no way at all it should have been fined. Unless KP works for Sky or something.
Chanderpaul's not gonna be going anywhere fast in these conditions.
driving like a champ
That's why I said "last wicket for a while", rather than "Powell to go and leave Shiv there".
he doesn't seem to like it up him currently
Things I want to see in this test:
-The Windies doing well for a session and commentators falling over themselves not to patronise them
-Broad taking a wicket, doing the 'air guns' celebration thing and being told to 'stop that god-awful posing' by Strauss.
-Chanderpaul going nuts and trying to smack a six off every ball. Heading to the pavillion after his dismissal and going "why not? WHY NOT?? It doesn't make any difference when I bat for days does it!"
-Otis Gibson balling out the openers. "LADS! YOU'VE GOT TO BAT MORE!"
-In the second innings Barath coming out to bat for the WI on his own. General confusion until a helicopter is spotted from which Chris Gayle parachutes out to an accompaniment of fireworks and dancing girls from the IPL. He lands, saunters to the crease and then says "Hell yeah, I'm back baby."
That is what I want.
yeah, I'd be happy with any of those, but getting Gayle in to teach our boys a thing or two would be premium
A) he's just been smacked in the box.
B) he's the only man in england currently wearing a jumper.
GIVEN! HE'S GONE!
so i'm going to have to read these two posts a minute appart to re-live the tension
but if you really want to re-live the tension then you actually need to leave a minute between reading the subject line and final line of the first post. The second post is just a coda.
that will work
His run a ball 30 will save the day!
(I'm going to post this quickly before he gets out and renders this comment redundant).
cmon the windies
Henry Blofeld singing Jonathan Agnew's name. Beautiful.
Marlon Samuels is brilliant. According to the commentators on Sky, he was being gently sledged by the England cordon, at which point he turned round and told them to shut up because he's going to get another hundred.
If ever there was a case for giving MOTM to a player (probably) on the losing side it's this one.
remembered him being much better than this
