Here is the safe bet for the week, Were English cricketers cheating? Daily Telegraph July 14 (Bastard day-sorry Bastille Day) Vote here. An evens bet would double your dosh, Of course a bunch of one eyed morons suffering from a bout of sour grapes would scream yes, then I was surprised to note the "No" vote also proved that not every cricket follower was as biased as the majority.
In my opinion the the most dramatic part of the first test at Cardiff where the pitch resembled a Cow paddock, was the final hour.
The look of utter confidence within the OZ team when the wickets tumbled and the final pair of Pommy no hopers in the batting sense were faced with the daunting task of saving the game.
With sixty six balls to be bowled, the final pair did the unthinkable and batted for fifty minutes and saved the game, both not out at the end, maybe the result was due to the piss poor pedestrian bowling by the gaily prancing-cuddling over confident arrogant attitude of the team administered by their ball scratching scruffy unshaven nose picking gum chewing leader from Tasmania, Who obviously had the wrong head removed in his early years.
The list of dirty tricks used in the game of cricket is well known by most cricketers.The best trick is not getting found out, The list extends much further than the list the Daily Telegraph supplied.
However, this noble game was invented by the Poms (English) going back a fair bit - in a paddock in Hambledon Hampshire(Where a Wasp nest resided near the Style last time I went there) The game is not an even playing field, the toss of a coin gives the winner an unfair advantage to start with, and the game ends after a heap of controversy bitching and nail biting.
I'll finish by saying Ricky Ponting you may be a good exponent in the art of the game, but your 'Nit picking' and anti social appearance leaves much to be desired, Have you tried using soap?
This will be my last post for a while, my time will be taken up by a writing project over the next two or three weeks,if time allows I shall call to comment.
Have a thoughtful day, Vest.
