    The worst cricket article ever

    Just been reading this cricket page and I don't know if it's because I'm drunk but it's the funniest thing I've seen for ages.

    Amongst the gems it calls Colin Croft Craft, on one occasion spells Bradman as Bradkman, it says the Bodyline Series was in 1922 and it says of Garry Sobers "He was knighted for her services to cricket in 1975."

    Not very well written, but he could have least checked his facts

    Obviously does not have Voltman as a proof reader
    You know it makes sense.

    If scathings were potatoes, then that was an Irish pot roast.

    It didn't get many replies (half of those it did were Sean-Voltman trades) and I thought it might be amusing for some of the members who've joined in the last 2 years to read.

    If not, please un-dig it.

    One cannot talk of Indian cricket team and not talk of Sachin Tendulkar, the 18-year-old prodigy who made his debut in the Pakistan series at Karachi.
    Tendulkar was 16.

    Rahul Dravid was the toast of the Indian cricket team when he led India to its first victory against Australia in 22 years in Adelaide in December 2003.
    In Australia, against Australia India won in 2001.

    Rebecca Wilson's article in yesterdays Advertiser runs close. A nice mix of blaming injuries and retirements for Australia's last test match defeat, coupled with a customary dig at Ponting, and a nice summary that while it is the end of the world, Australia can still win this test series
