    It doesn't. They were talking about how he must've had a good season though and put heaps of work in when it clearly wasn't the case at all. They were just making up rubbish because he was bowling well.

    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    That explains it; I thought it was twighlight until I worked out that it would be 3:30pm in South Africa. Wasn't sure if it was just ridiculously dark or there was something wrong with my TV.

    It looks as though it's the bounce that's causing the problems more than anything.

    I'd go so far as to say a syrup is never socially acceptable, tbh.

    Can still generate a bit of heat for a fat old man tho, tbf. That bouncer was through at 138kmh.

    It seemed a lot sunnier right at the start of the game; how did your TV look then?

    I seem to recall the multi-coloured undercut gaining some acceptance on Video Hits circa 1994, give or take. Agree with you though.

    Such a stance would surely cut your business in half though.

    Don't show us Morkel's 4-fer vs India ffs. Everyone knows they don't do rapid bounce well.

    So the only time you work on your cricket is during a game? Nice to know.
