    I can imagine what Muloghonto is like in real-life, then, if he isn't actually a 71.1cm tall piece of wood with a hole drilled across the top of his metaphorical skull:

    Mulo sits at his desk, feeling slightly constipated after he was forced to eat white bread like a mere plebeian, the office suffering a crippling shortage of wholemeal-multigrain sandwiches. As he tries to work the problem out with a pencil, he notices a smudge on his glasses.He removes them, and stares at the spot intently - despite his vision being the equivalent of the town drunk, whose methylated spirits intake somehow had yet to kill him.

    Slowly, meticulously he lowers his glasses towards his shirttail, before remembering his specialised cleaning cloth for exactly this purpose. He scrubs, furiously, at the smudge until it is completely eradicated from the lens. As he puts them back on, he notices that his vision is still slightly blurred. He does not attempt to remove the smudge again, for it is cannot possibly be there - the mighty Muloghonto never fails in a task!

    Mulo readjusts his fedora, and turns back to the paper. He's working on a statistical equation - crunching the numbers for the elderly Economics professor who hired him to the Fedora Studies team as a research underling. He completes his work, picks up the page of data, and takes them to the elderly man's office to report his results.

    The professor, somewhat senile and with a conservative streak that would make Tony Abbott blush, scans over the work.
    "You've made an error here, Mr. Muloghonto. You see, you've written here that two and two make five. That's thrown the whole dataset off, and the results are wrong. Your conclusion says that the fedora is a positive influence on society!"
    "I'll have you know," Mulo replies, "that my experience with mathematics has underpinned my career for the past epoch; far longer than you have been publishing papers on the effects of fedoras on society. I can assure you that there is no mistake in my work. As a fedora-wearer of the highest order, I can assure you that all of the data you have meticulously compiled, over the length of your career, is incorrect. Not all of us are like that, I'm a nice gent; don't blame all fedora wearers for the sins of the few."
    "Run the numbers again," the Professor sighs, obviously used to his underling's method of speech. "And by the way, you have a smudge on your glasses."

    As I told the mods, I still think Muloghonto is a tool they're using for our two minutes hate. To prevent infighting they're giving us a common enemy.

    Why aren't any of the other Indian posters pointing out that Muloghonto's username sounds like something an angry Bengali would say

    I don't understand the butt hurt. SL perform fine at home (remembering sides wouldn't go there in the 96 WC because of the terrorist threat, so they got a couple of what they normally are to other sides - walk overs) and ok on the SC, but they're **** elsewhere. I don't see why this comes as a revelation to anyone.

    A source of shame, certainly. But I don't get the surprise at their being called out on their inter generational mediocrity.

    I would have thought a Sri Lankan supporter of all people would understand the very real nature of the terrorist threat against cricketers.

    Well, this has turned into an absolute trainwreck over the past half-hour.

    If you haven't been justifying it leading up to and after the event, a 50-over WC win is like Wigan winning the FA Cup last year IMO. An achievement alright but it doesn't mean you were the best team in the world/country.

    I think there's a fair argument to be made that it definitely makes you the best at ODI cricket regardless of other results/rankings given how many teams are clearly and deliberately selected to not contain the best available players for bilateral series.

    I don't see how pointing out the current Australian team's ineptitude against spin somehow proves SL are suddenly of some relevance to international cricket, either.

    Everyone knows the current Aussie team is terrible against spin, especially in the subcontinent. It's very disappointing as we've had lots of good players of spin in the past, but this current lot (Clarke and TPC aside) struggle with it massively.

    I know it's very disappointing to followers of Australian cricket that they struggle playing the long sleeve 14.99999 degree brigade. But surely it's worse to have never produced a side in 30+ years that has ever been worth a squirt of piss outside your comfort zone?
