    Devil Duckys World Cup Essentials

    <quack>

    9 February, South Africa v West Indies
    Wavell Hinds (West Indies)

    Wavell Hinds scratches around for 16 deliveries, waiting for the ball to come within arms reach. Taken by surprise as Shaun Pollock finally switches on his radar , there is the awful snick of willow on pad and umpire Daryl Harper raises the dreaded finger. The first duck of the tournament has been achieved, and it took just 20 minutes.
    DD rating - 3 lilypads

    Makhaya Ntini (South Africa)

    Much credit for this dismissal should go to Lance Klusener. When Klusener lofted Vasbert Drakes (my hero) to Carl Hooper at deep midwicket in the final over with eight to win, the batsman moved nary a muscle in an attempt to cross, thus ensuring that the Protean tail ender should be given his chance of glory. With Nicky Boje haring down the track in a vain attempt to wrest the strike, Klusener set off for the pavilion. Sure enough, Ntini duly obliged, valiantly slamming a full toss to Ramnaresh Sarwan on the boundary for a mere two-ball duck.
    DD rating - 4 lilypads

    Breadcrumb moment - Pedro Collins.

    With Lance Klusener roaring along like the Zulu of old, Chris Gayle was swatted right down the throat of the unfortunate Pedro Tyrone Collins. Gleefully pouching the catch, he decided to take more steps backwards than in the title of the average John Buchan novel, straight on to the boundary rope, thus donating a six to the batsman and an exciting finish to the rest of us. Nice one, Pedro.

    That was quick eddie!

    I doubt if BojÚ was on strike for the last three balls, he would have been able to muster 9 runs. For me, the game was up the moment Zulu got out....

    What about Venkat's reluctance to stretch arms in the first four overs ?

    There would've been more of a chance than with Ntini on strike. In cricket, anything could happen...
    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."

    <quack> ducks and breadcrumbs only, please.

    Hush now, Devil Ducky. I agree, Gotchya. However, Venkat was consistent - there were a couple at the death which he didn't call either.

    <quack> what a name - Vasbert Drakes. Gets in DDs first XI every time.

    I thought you'd like him.

    <quack> luckyeddie asked me if I'd write some articles for the world cup

    I never did.

    <quack> you did

    You pestered me and I said that you were on a 3 day trial

    <quack> look at the hits on this thread already.

    Meaning?

    <quack> the world loves ducks. everyone writes books about the great batsmen, great keepers, great fielders, great bowlers, great matches, great pies....

    Great pies?

    <quack> delia smith is a director of norwich city

    Norwich City don't play cricket

    <quack> Don't play football either

    Your point being....

    <quack> no-one's ever written articles about something i like

    Being.....
