    2130 First Class runs @ 36.72, probably.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Not hard to figure out really. He's got ginger hair, he's a rich man, so obviously bribed Hilditch and probably bought his family a house somewhere on Sydney's northern beaches. Especially considering the current economic climate that bribe was worth more than it usually is. Hence all rounder status and extended run in the team.
    Inappropriate signature.

    Haha, nuff said, really!

    Nah, he's a nurdler, hangs around long enough, is difficult to get out, inevitably picks up some runs. Nice strokes when set, though, especially through the legside. The number of overs he bowls probably impacts on his batting a fair bit.

    You forgot the bit about poisoning Marcus North. Otherwise, thanks for the explanation

    Finally a wicket for Ntini, he really deserved that. Thanks Andrew for adhering to my proposed shot sequence above.

    Amazing how closely this Aussie side resembles the side of the mid/late 80's in style/mannerisms/composition and even which state some of them are from!

    Andy McDonald = Tony Dodemaide
    Peter Siddle = Merv
    Brad Haddin = Healy (fumbles and all)
    Bryce McGain = Bob Holland
    Mitchell Johnson = Bruce Reid (injury-wise, I certainly hope not)
    Kat = Kepler Wessels ( a little)

    That the selection squad is made of cricketers from that era making a difference? haha

    Two drop catches and a good impression of deer caught-in-headlights. I can't see Imraan being at the crease come tomorrow.
