    Couldn't stay away forever when I'm so close to hitting four figures!

    BTW, is anyone talking about the West Indies anywhere (Mr M, for example) or has their Super 8 campaign been so appallingly spineless that everyone's decided not to bother? Wouldn't blame them.

    Well, Xavier did create a West Indies thread, and yeah, Liam's still as-per-usual.

    Can't find it, but then I've never really mastered the search function.

    (See how shamelessly I'm padding out the posts to reach the milestone?!)

    All the more reason to dig it, then, TBH.

    Disappointed you didn't ask me what "Igiyuan" means, too, TBH.

    If I have to get up at 2am to watch this stuff, I want it to feel like it's actually coming from the West Indies, not some sanitised, globalised Disneyland that the ICC may as well build indoors in Dubai.
    Awesome rant.

    It's a quote from one of my fave Nina Bawden books, A Handful Of Thieves, which I loved at 9 and still do now.

    It's basically "I'll give you a hand" spoken in a very poor voice.

    It's been said by so many about so many cricket events of the not-too-distant-past.
