    A CW award first - pick the Greigy

    OK guys, there's 2 outstanding candidates for this week's Greigy, so this week I'm going to let you the members vote for who gets this prestigious award.

    The first candidate is Turbinator for this little gem:

    Bangladesh won't beat India, face it!!!

    Can't wait to honestly shut you all up after Saturday.
    The second candidate is Richard, who summed up Ireland's chances of beating Pakistan as:

    I'm sure we're all resting assured today after being shut up!

    Get your votes in quickly as it will close in about 24 hours or so.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Well given that Pakistan losing to an amateur side who aren't even as good as a single First-Class county ranks as a far bigger upside-down-turn, I shall see it as a great injustice if I'm denied the Greigy.

    Mind, I should seal it after saying that India could hit Bangladesh for 450. Let's just hope Sri Lanka might manage that.

    Rest assured, though, anyone voting for me automatically rules themselves out of the Sir Geoffrey for life.

    Even the eternal optimist of eternal optimists (that's me, btw) was nervous about this match. As sad as it was to see India go down, watching Turbs get bitchslapped was amusing.

    Richard of course, not only did he go both matches, it hits at one of his more annoying credos

    A Greigy would be an honour, TBH - I'm no longer eligable for the two awards I'd be most keen on were I not handing them out.

    Rich, both of them.

    Turb did make an absolute fool out of himself though, and I bloody warned him too.
