Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."
CW Blue would love to have Smith back. Sex appeal at the club has been given a large boost recently with Thamba leaving, but we're always on the look out for more.
Captain for the Blues.

Camps: It's been a good run
Allrounder announces international retirement
Veteran allrounder Liam Camps Jr. today announced his retirement from international cricket at the completion of the coming home season. There has long been speculation that Camps would call time on his international career, starting when he withdrew from the Cricket Web XI's last ODI series, against India.
"I've been so blessed in my career. Not just to get the opportunity to play international cricket, but having had a decent career there," said Camps, "Every day I thank God. I've been blessed. I know I've had my problems and rifts with others at times, but I'd like to mend those bridges and leave on a high note."
Camps has played 29 Tests and 122 one-day internationals. His major success came in the shorter form of the game, where he presently averages 30.43 with the bat and 24.02 with the ball. He has taken 177 ODI wickets and is the second highest wickettaker in the shorter form for CW XI. Speaking of the prospect of 200 wickets, Camps was realistic: "It'd be good, but very ambitious. I'll certainly be going for it though."
"I won't be giving up on Development League cricket just yet, and I still think I have a few more good seasons at that level for Cricket Web Blue," he said, "Right now I'm just focussed on preparing for the new season, and in time to come I hope to devote all my efforts to helping Blue achieve greater success. It's been a good run."

Good knock, that.
Kyle is no longer the Wright stuff.
Rumours are circulating CW Land tonight that Colts captain Kyle Wright isn't secure in his position amidst a set of internal riffs at the club, the latest being the departure of highly respected spinner Jack McNamara. A definite split has occured between the loyal Wrightites and the dissident faction of Gegarians, who claim they do most the work anyway. What will be the outcome of this infighting? This reporter reckons
for Colts this season.
Dire first Halsey and now Camps. There goes our bowling attack. Smith better learn how to bat again this season, or Wilson learn how to bowl.

The offseason in Australia showed I can actually bat in OD.
The one, the only CW Black
Code:47.3 W Coppinger to Heads Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!
Just had a close look at the off season stuff. Liking the all round OD performances of Richards, Wilson and Fuller.
Re Smith: Don't you always score runs in the off season and then never get bat during the development league?
I've never made an OD ton outside of CW until this off-season iirc.
It's true that I generally only get a bat at 6 during Devvers when we're under shocking pressure. I usually choke
Camps' decision provoked by his shocking 20/20 form for mine. (face)

Is the CWBCC sacrificing cricket for money?
By BS Bullock
It would appear in an attempt to draw the crowds in and make more money, the CWBCC are making the pitches of CWLand more batsmen friendly.
Liam Camps Snr's smallest summer holiday house in this hemisphere.
In the last three seasons there has been a noticeable increase in bowling averages which begs the question, is the CWBCC trying to attract spectators, television viewers and sponsors by encouraging more runs being scored?
A CWLand cricket pitch, earlier today.
As the theory goes, the general public would rather see more boundaries hit than wickets taken. As batsmen are starting to get more recognition and fame in CWLand, the bowlers are nameless characters in a show all about that's all about the batsmen.
"Even players with mediocre batting abilities like Corrin can score double centuries these days" said disgruntled grade cricketer AJ Ditchburn, "it's a complete and utter joke".
Up and coming batsman Nick Scott pops out to get a diamond bucket filled with caviar.
This could also be the reason for the increasing number of all-rounders, as bowlers attempt to get in on the gravy train. The latter, out of the public spotlight, have to find other ways to make a living.
Heath Davis late yesterday afternoon.
Sources inside the CWBCC have indicated that they are in fact telling ground staff to prepare flatter pitches, all the while trying to fool us into believing it's a bowler dominated competition, with such propaganda as this.
A look at the records reveal a more truthful statistic: the bowling averages are increasing as each season passes.
For example, in season 11, 19 bowlers averaged under 30 (min. 100 overs).
In season 12, just 7 averaged sub-30, while in 13 there was a slight increase with 8 averaging under 30.
So, are the CWBCC flattening out the pitches, or is it a mere coincidence, and is the actual performance and quality of CW bowlers declining?
For the sake of making something out of nothing on a boring day, this reporter thinks it's the former.
haha wouldnt mind batting on that
