    That judgement is a tad unfair as of yet...

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."

    And since they're still ranked at number 2, a series win for England could move them very high up the ratings.

    My rant for today! I waited 25 overs with the pads on only to not get a bat as numbers 1 and 4 got unbeaten tons...I was number 5...

    When I fielded I couldn't quite cling onto a catch I shouldn't even have got near to.

    When I bowled, there were tons over overthrows and about 10 chances, none taken, as well as numerous plays and misses. Add to that everyone else took wickets with ****e balls and got them out for 35 (about half of the runs came off my bowling)...I'm not happy.

    I'm going to have to practise for a gig all next week as well as recording, I'm not sure if the girl I like's going to that gig, she has no credit and she's not having a great time at the moment...and THERE'S NOTHING GOOD ON TV!!!

    Oh and I got sunburnt to boot :!(

    Are you sure you're not exaggerating a little bit? Or are you just the unluckiest cricketer on the face of the earth?

    thats real unlucky mate. we're in the off season at the moment, but i remember an occasion where i had no luck either.
    i was opening the bowling to the oppositions best batman. (he hit us everywhere last time) anyway i got my first four on spot for a few swing and misses and i had him going. on the fifth, i tempted him into a pull shot that was just a bit full to pull, the ball went straight up, really high, sailing,the landed direct between fine leg and the keeper, both of whom had been sprinting and ended up a meter away form the ball. after that, this batsman hit a couple of cross-bat slogs off me for four, but that was a bit of a fluke. he scored alot off the other bowler, and i had a couple of chances dropped. in the last ball of one over in particular, some1 dropped a sitter.

    but i had the last laugh a had him caught and bowled fist ball next over
    incidentally, the next ball i bowled was a beaut, went over off and missed the stump by a centimeter

    I know, it's totally crap :!( The majority of the bowlers are injured, their medium-paced captain is opening the bowling and the batsmen can't bat when they need to

    How great.

    COME ON YOU BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    And to top it all off you have to face a Lashings Rest of the World X1 tommorow!

    Don't worry though the team will be weaker than the one that beat us today, only Stuart Williams, Sherwin Campbell, Craig McMillan, Mark Waugh, Richie Richardson, Chris Harris, Viv Richards, Jimmy Adams, Lance Klusener, Franklyn Rose, Curtly Ambrose, Mohammad Akram turning up for the game :saint:

    Actually that team does look stronger mind you any team with Viv Richards is going to be :rolleyes:

    Its good to see from an NZ POV that McMillan & Harris are scoring consistently..however I don't really know what the opposition is like.
