    1) We always wear protection.

    2) Because with perfect timing we can penetrate a tight ring

    3) Once we get in you'll be hit for six

    4) We look for gaps and play into them.

    5) We are capable of pulling anything.

    6) We're not afraid to introduce a third man if required

    7) We appreciate legs whether they be fine, short, long or even square.

    8) If it starts to get wet we are always sure to have spare sheets and covers.

    9) We try to avoid "spraying it"

    10) We can go on and on and on for many days!!!

    11) We like to play straight

    12) We can bat on both grassy and grassless wickets

    13) We build long partnerships.

    14) We know how to vary the pace to good effect

    15) We believe in good helmet protection

    16) We're not afraid to spit on our fingers to get the shiny side gleaming

    17) We have remarkable stamina with all-round performance.

    18) Because our weapons are often wrapped with at least one if not TWO rubber sleeves

    19) We score many times.

    20) We understand the need for covers and extra covers

    21) We definitely know how to 'bang it in'

    22) We appreciate a good tail-end

    23) Cricketers know for sure that 69 for 2 is a great position to be in.

    24) We know how to get a good use of the pitch we play on.

    25) We know how to use our bats skillfully while on the crease.

    26) We can bowl a maiden over.

    27) We know how to arch our backs and give it just that little bit more

    28) We're a big fan of video replays

    29) We always try to hit the right spot

    30) We know how to add that extra bit of pressure

    31) We're not afraid of a couple of decent bouncers

    32) We never underestimate the value of an overnight stand

    33) We usually get through 3 sessions a day

    34) We British cricketers relish the chance to go 'down under'

    35) We know that chasing a wide one can lead to regret

    36) We're not afraid to bring technology into the game

    37) We also love to put it in 'The Corridor of Uncertainty'

    Just accept it, a gentlemans sport can only be played by gentlemen...

    and of course 'a full toss in the face is always an accident and will be apologised for straight away...'


    Happy, Corrin?

    This is ripped shamelessly from a Facebook group, incidentally. Doesn't make it not funny though.

    Thought it would be the other way around actually. Aroused and a little disgusted. You must be mellowing in your old age.
