THE ULTIMATE CRICKET WEB ARCADE EGGS CHAMPION
RIP Fardin Qayyumi (AKA "cricket player"; "Bob"), 1990-2006
RIP Craig Walsh (AKA "Craig"), 1985-2012
Read this today in the Times whilst on me lunch break. Hilarious stuff. Wonder what Dunc thought?
Complete shocker. He seems to be implying that winning an ODI tournament, even the WC, is not as important as a proper test series.
Who'd have thunk? Good for him, I was beginning to think I was the only one.
Most unlike Simon Barnes IMO. He's usually excellent in his sympathetic, measured writing.
Disappointed in him. And especially disappointed that he'd blame the coach for the scheduling.
His Panesar>>>>>>>>>>>>Gilesism and Harmison's-rubbishness-isn't-his-faultism is at least not unique, so I can forgive him for that.

Sarcasm the easiest form of humour
You know it makes sense.
Don't know about you, but I was so over the CB series that I didn't care who won. What a dash for cash by Cricket Australia. I thought England came to defend the Ashes, and they went home 1 wallet less and with the ugliest trophy in the cricket world. Wonder if it got its own seat home just like the Ashes urn?
Top stuff from Barnes, as per.
Hey, sarcasms always cool in my book.
Anywhoo, I thought it was "the lowest form of wit".

"Even when England lost 5-0 in 2006-07 I don't remember them folding like this. This is as bad as I have seen from an England side."

He always writes a good article does Simon Barnes, although that isn't his best by a long way IMO.
COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"One day lad, all this will be yours"
"What, the curtains?"
You really shouldn't be allowed to get paid for writing that. Not that its necessarily incorrect, but just useless.
