I'd like to imagine in cricketing heaven that Hughes has already found Archie Jackson and they're sitting, smiling and discussing what might've been, and also discussing how fickle both batting and life can be. Maybe Trumper sits close by, nodding.
Maybe it is the same risk as playing the cover drive, and I actually don't mind that. But when you're trying to bat for 2 days to see out a draw you shouldn't be playing the reverse sweep OR the cover drive, you ****wit.
The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.
playing the reverse sweep is fair if you can get it away as well as a straight drive i suppose
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

Keating couldn't give a **** about the Australian cricket team.
The article is a crock of ****. The 50s was the height of the Menzian torpor, in societal, economic and cricketing terms. Cricket nearly died in the 50s. It was horrible. I bet the ****wit who wrote that article laments 100 overs not being bowled in a day, despite the fact that when they were, teams would go to stumps at 4/170.
He's a ****.
But then, so is Maxwell.

#408. Sixty three not out forever.
Maxwell is probably right about a cover drive and a reverse sweep being equal risk for him, and that he was likely to get out quicker if he was defending instead of attacking.
The problem isn't how Maxwell batted, it's that he was picked to begin with.
I don't even care about that. The suggestion that it's less risky than a forward defense though. Sheesh. If that's the case you shouldn't be playing test cricket bud.
my favourite bit of that dumb article is:
Excuse me? That’s probably the most arrogant thing I’ve ever read – and I’ve read the Latham Diaries.
Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
