    Jamaican athletes and Cricket

    Blake wants to change track to IPL!


    Blake wants to change track to IPL! - Yahoo! Cricket India

    We all know the bolt's story, but you get the impression these guys just happen to love sports (they probably played all in high school) and i'm sure if WI cricket was doing better more young men would chose crikcet instead of track or football.

    Andre Russel is said to be a good runner and lucky for WI he chose cricket.

    Damn, imagine an opening bowling combo of Blake and Bolt, what could've been?

    I think most of this story is just Blake having some fun with the Indian journalists though

    These guys are discipline and fit, and there's no question of their ability to learn the game as being the best ever runners in track requires alot of training and learning minor adjustment and then doing them to perfection!.

    People always ask where are the fast bowlers ? they are running track.

    I love the fact they are not afraid to express their love for the game and Blake listed a long list of players and even remembered gayle's team instantly

    For the record, Blake plays cricket regularly with Kingston Cricket Club.
    This suggest other wise.. but he can also be having fun and expressing his honest views instead of just BSing to make India reporters happy..

    and remember Bolt actually played a 20/20 game

    yeah, i think he was into athletics before shifting to cricket. The reverse usain bolt

    Yeah. And a big fan of the Pak cricket team too. LOL

    Usain Bolt - Cricket Hero: Waqar Younis & favourite team: Pakistan - YouTube
    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

    The story was that Holding and another guy played cricket and did athletics together - Holding was the better 400m runner, and the other bloke a superior fast bowler.

    The other guy broke the 400m World Record, Holding became one of the greatest quicks in history.

    Not sure about the accuracy, but that's ridiculously impressive.

    haha but you get the feeling Bolt has a sense of humour too, unlike the other two.

    Ishant should only be allowed to laugh near kids on Halloween.
