    In keeping with the cricketing theme, we'll miss the last 20 minutes of it to watch A Current Affair
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    If Billy Birmingham isn't doing the voice for Greigy it's a massive jib, IMHO.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Couldn't help but laugh at Brendon Julian showing up when he should be about 7.

    It was about getting Lillee. He was cricket here back then.

    Ian Chappell tells the story of Cornell or Robertson visitng the Australians on tour in the lead up and discussing whether cricketer understood the language of money. To illustrate a point they said to Lillee they would give him $50 a run over 20. Australia had suffered a bit of a collapse and Lillee immediately did the team thing and went and got a promotion in the order, nearly ran out to bat, belted the first ball for six and turned around with a big **** eating grin on his face at the dressing room. Max Walker risked a close friendship by ending the innings and leaving Lillee 29 or so not out.

    At the innings break they again approached Lillee and offered him $100 a wicket. There was about half an hour of play left in the day. Lillee took four in the time available, and seemed to prove the point that cricketers understand how money works.

    No bleep required, I guess.
