    It's surely a delicious irony that the sponsored link I'm seeing at the bottom of the page is for a sunglasses company!

    Unfortunatley not, the pages get sponsored links that match key-words on the page.

    There's not advantage to it, let them do it.

    The bigger question is should batsmen be allowed to wear sunglasses....Saqlain Mushtaq certainly thinks so.

    That's not him preparing to bat though, that's him preparing to take on the Death Star.

    Aha! Just noticed why Swann is so good...

    He probably has some sort of vision technology in those glasses which assists him to locate the cracks, rough patches and then pin points the area for him to pitch the ball. This yields extravagant break off the pitch even though he doesn't put that many rotations on the ball...

    Verdict: Take the award back and have him remove his glasses and lets see how good he does then...
    BE AFRIDI!
    Be VERY AFRIDI!!
