    The Debate Settled: Atul Sharma vs Morne Morkel

    After a lengthy investigation and interviews with some of CW's favourite residents (and Jono), it can be revealed that neither Atul Sharma nor Morne Morkel are actually that good.

    Sharma, who it is claimed has bowled at 172km/h - about 6 times the size of his vocabulary - has been well and truly debunked as a fast bowling prodigy. Even his own coach, Ian Pont, suggested he had been overhyped:

    Morkel, similarly, has been the butt of jokes and criticism on numerous occasions for his inaccuracy, inconsistency and general inability.

    Finally, the spearhead of Fizzing at the Bung CC, Heath Davis, has been subjected to critical acclaim for his obvious fast bowling prowess.

    DB Wayne, who has wicketkept to all three bowlers, had this to say:
    "Wicketkeeping to Heath has been fine - he's extremely quick, probably on par with Sharma and Morkel, however he has the accuracy neither of the others have. In those trial Twenty20 matches, it was a struggle not to concede 4 byes every second ball; Sharma couldn't get it on the cut strip, and we've all seen that video of Morkel. I'm convinced he was on something and hallucinated that the stumps were walking around towards square leg. Even I couldn't bowl that wide if I tried, and I'm a wicketkeeper!"

    Morkel and Sharma were unreachable when requested for interview; team officials stated they were recovering from 'minor training injuries', despite news of their arrest already becoming public.
