    Inzy, at the takeaway? Surely some mistake...

    The question does have to be asked, though - why's Richie at Wellington airport? Wonder what he was up to...

    Easy, importing New Zealand slaves into Australia. Sheesh.
    I once met SAJ Craig watching a Victorian District match. You wont know him but he played brilliantly! And, at the Australian open, my mate and I were walking along the middle of the path, and we were looking down, and we went RIGHT IN BETWEEN Serena and Venus Williams. I mean, bloody hell, they are BIG. They're big on the tele but in real life...

    Just rejected Hameed and left him hanging? The two best blokes I've met were Tareq Aziz and Khaled Mahmud. Both really top, friendly guys

    Only international cricketer I've met is Aminul Islam (Bangladesh's first captain), while my parents were posted in Bangladesh and I was visiting. One week earlier, though, the entire Australian cricket team was in Dhaka, and of course spent some time in the Australian Club adjoining the diplomatic compound, where our house was. So I missed out by one week on meeting the Australian cricket team in my own backyard.

    How cool would it have been to have a game of backyard Cricket with them?!
