    Yep and all the ostensibly seam-up slow-meds magically turn up at exactly that time to bend their back.

    The extended 50 minute warm up concluding just as the sun ducks behind the stands is just coincidence, probably.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Got whacked on the helmet by a bloke from second grade who decided to rip in when it was almost dark. Didn't believe he'd let it go at full pace until it was halfway down the wicket and I realised it was short and going at my head. Let him know straight away I thought he was a ****ing idiot who needed to do a little more thinking about things.

    Resisted the temptation to return the favour the next week cause the prick was about 6 foot 4 and I would've done my back trying to get a short one high enough.

    Have said it a few times, have been in the nets against two seriously rapido ****s; Troy Corbett and Shane George. George was definitely 90+ for most of his career, was actually clocked 150+, I believe. Corbett even quicker. George was tough, especially with a skinful prior to training (most of the time....) but Corbett was nasty. Lovely, lovely bloke but he was a lefty with the physique of a ruckman whose default ball was the away swinger. The times I faced him, either he zipped the ball away from my bat (resident in the next postcode...) or brought the ball back in from just back of a length outside leg-stump. With his bounce and extreme pace it meant you had no prayer of getting out of the way and my ribs were rattled every couple of balls. Was spitting blood for days and couldn't take a deep breath for weeks after that.

    Honourable mention, Dennis Hickey. I didn't face him because he rarely turned out for club training but once he did and delivered some peppery stuff at our state reps when he was trying to get back in the side. Was half-rat I'm certain but Jesus Christ it was lethal.
    Nice post. All quick yet all had fc averages of 40+. Incredible to think the of the skill to make bowlers of that class to pay that much for their wickets. One of the blokes I think about as an if only was Wayne Prior. Just checked his cricinfo profile and he kind of drifted out of the game after WSC. Apparently real quick.

    I hope they do a follow up piece on Piers tomorrow and show his bruises, if only for the pleasure we will get out of it.

    Feel like I've said this before somewhere....(apologies if I have).

    But yeah, George did have a decent run for SA and had a few good seasons where he won state player of the year but I don't think he had a season where he paid < 30 for his wickets. Not enough movement in general. Corbett and Hickey were hugely affected by injuries, though. Corbett especially had the trajectory to be a gun but he moved here from Victoria and his spine basically collapsed one day. Sad.

    On raw speed, Corbett was up there with Tait reputedly. Never saw him clocked, though.

    He loves getting that new face of his on TV, does Shane, and so he's not going to be burning the best bridge for him to get on TV in America any time soon.

    Brett Lee seems to be somewhat of a hero on the twittersphere!! No love at all for poor all battered Piers.

    Did Moron actually say on TMS that Trott and Swann should "man-up"? he really is an utter waste of skin.

    Made more gags in an interview after the net session about how he wouldn't be running off home, and would stick it out in Australia. What a flog.

    My favorite part of that video (aside from Morgan being hit repeatedly obviously) is Warne trying to get the round of applause going and a tumbleweed rolling past. Everybody hates Piers.
