    Haha, so cruelly apt.

    Actually, I think it'd be more apt for the same event to say...

    I'll be sympathetic to Sinclair

    Sinclair-Boulevard Of Broken Dreams-Greenday

    Jesse Ryder-Bad Habit-The Offspring

    Might take a band and see which of their songs apply to cricketers, way easier.

    Rahul Dravid, Mark Richardson-Defy You-The Offspring
    Marcus Trescothick-Self Esteem
    Symonds vs India-Come Out and Play (Gotta Keep 'em Seperated)

    As you can see mine don't stack up to most in this thread. Awesome thread.
    Proudly supporting Central Districts
    RIP Craig Walsh

    I was actually thinking of the whole of the recent part of his career - one of the key lyrics from that tune is weeping for the memory of a life gone by. Sinclair is still playing (so still "dancing") but with hindsight I think we can now say that the double-centuries and one-fifty were a life gone by as Sinclair almost seems a different player after them.

    If I can procure some footage of those three famous innings, I shall be making an alternative video to the "Don't Worry Skippy", as also previously mentioned.

    I'll also be offering you a large sum of money for them. I can't find them anywhere. I've emailed stacks of people too.
