    Summary of last two weeks in World cricket in 100 words or less

    I have been in the wilderness for the last two weeks on holiday without any electronic devices. I know, scary, right? I have a bazillion emails from work so I don't have time to troll through pages of sports stuff and forums. If anyone can summarise the last two weeks I will be internally grateful and enlightened at the same time.

    Dermo has been good. Ajd00d not so much. Benchmark has been a bad boi. PEWS won plenty of dosh. Burgey made 96. Nothing of importance happened in the Shield matches. No other cricket is noteworthy.

    Well you'll be pleased to know wiff you picked a good couple of weeks to be away as there really hasn't been too much going on of excitement in the cricket world. Quick snapshot as follows.........

    - India and Australia have been engaged in some form of contest involving a bat and a ball. Some have said the games do resemble cricket in parts but tbh.......I've got nfi what they were playing.

    - SA/Pakistan just drew a test series 1-1.........again I'm at a loss to credit the "series" with too much significance on account of the fact it was over before it begun.

    - Bangladesh/NZ - battle of the minnows (sorry Kiwis ) Drew a 2 test series 0-0.......yeah I know, only in cricket. Then the Tigers won the ODI's 3 zip. Sorry, like you I didn't watch any of this so best not to comment off cricinfo

    I think this more accurately summarises the past two weeks in cricket than Adders' attempt - steeped in factual accuracy though it may be.

    Indeed. And the ladies in the crowd duly fainted as they watched young men being whipped around the outfield in only their undercrackers.
