    Every time the duck writes about Warne, there's a gag about Shane's mum, Shane's Chemist, more often Shane's mum asking Shane to nip to the Chemists etc etc etc.

    I can't believe I just explained that.

    You are either
    a) an alien sent to earth to gather information about cricket before your people launch an invasion, probably using the deadly kookaburra cricket ball as a novel type of guided weapon
    or
    b) extremely witty and got the gag, and used the 'line' reference to describe an activity involving a razor blade, a mirror and a straw (as demonstrated by Robbie Fowler in a goal celebration a few years ago)

    No, I just dont read DD columns :P :P

    Stewie needs another 620 runs to become Englands leading run scorer in Tests.

    Why? He will still be the best Wicket-Keeper/Batsman in England even when he retires. As they say, if your still good enough then age is never a problem, and he's been in top form averaging 55 in his last 17 Test innings. Yes and that includes the Ashes tour in Australia.

    A great player and although I didn't get to see much of him before 1999, the last few years have made up for it!

    The 100 in his 100th Test
    The almost 3 consecutive ODI 100s (ended with a 99)

    They just go on and on.

    Thank you for giving your life to England Alec, keep enjoying it.

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    I can't see him doing that in this series, and his retirement means he won't get another chance. I think he will have to settle for 2nd best. But we can live in the knowledge that he would have made it if he had carried on, he's a fantastic player and he's going to retire whilst he's one of the world's top keeper/batsmen, even at age 40, his powers have not waned.

    620 runs in potentially 10 innings against a pretty ordinary attack (compared with what it used to be like) - I wouldn't necessarily bet against it.
    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!

    Some guys just carry on and on, Stewie what a legend, he would probably be the best keeper batsman this time next year too.. Cheers for the memories, hope he has a great final series...

    No problem with me. Everyone gets out of Cricket Web what they want - whether it's news, features, reports, the forum or comedy.

    <quack> What did the Australian say when he saw seven kangaroos crossing the road?

    <LE> I don't know.

    <quack> Look - there are seven Kangaroos.

    <LE> I don't get it.

    <quack> I haven't finished yet.

    <LE> Sorry.

    <quack> What did the Australian say when he saw seven black swans crossing the road?

    <LE> Tell me.

    <quack> Look - there are seven black swans. What did the Australian say when he saw seven ducks crossing the road?

    <LE> Look - there are seven ducks?

    <quack> No.

    <LE> What, then?

    <quack> Hello, Ajit. Are you back again?

    Be careful DD. Marc knows people with butcher knives...
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
