    I don't know what to be more ashamed of; that I got that reference or that I'm quite chuffed about it.

    I thought the capital 'C' would give it away, to be honest. But full marks to the man from the Fens.

    I'm not sure whether Mark Nicholas would be able to keep the semen in his pants were he to witness the pure sexual thrill of the ball's logo making the sweet, sweet impact on the pitch logo.
    I m guessing u think the Delhi wicket was ok, then?

    I see that the ICC are further limiting the options available to the poor bowler by no balling them for accidentally hitting the non-striker's stumps.

    For shame. Batsmen are overhyped, over protected, over paid and over here.

    It's time to revisit my opening gambit to this thread. Each bowler to have their own set of balls.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
