    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    I was interested to see Robbie Williams taking time out from his busy schedule of clinging onto Gary Barlow's coattails and pie consumption to summer with Middlesex.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."

    Apparently there's a septic Olympian called Bob Willis. Obviously a water sports guy called Bob, is already hilarious, but I am also amused at how many times in blighty he would have been regaled by tales of Headingley '81, presumably to his bemusement.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    If you combine my first name with my girlfriend's surname, you end up with the name of an underperforming NZ middle order batsman-turned-opener.

    Share my surname with one of the better keeper-batsmen of recent times. My cousin shares first and surname with him (more or less).

    Good to see the former NZ skipper Stephen Fleming keeping himself busy by playing guitar for Scottish indie stalwarts Cosmic Rough Riders.

    I hate the fact that there is some idiot Indian actor and an idiot Pakistani singer, who are both called Imran Khan. They always pop up on Google whenever you type the name.

    An absolute dickwad turns up whenever I google my name and he happens to go by quite a number of other names as well. Teja or Cribb to confirm.
