Watching cricket is always a pretty social event, even if you're not going there to get sauced, you still want to go there with people because there's so much downtime - talk dross and stuff in between.
Rest In Peace Craigos
Now since the MCC has already said that Gilly didn't break any law by using the squash ball inside his glove, and they feel its similar to wearing inners inside the gloves.
So that should put all the doubts to rest now within Sri lanka.
He still cheated in my mind...may as well have gone out there with spring-loaded shoes so he could run between the wickets faster iyam

I don't really know to what extent you can generalize, though. I think there seems to be an atmosphere of "competitive mudslinging", not necessarily limited to Asians.

There is so much being said here without anything to substantiate.
Who has anything to support the 'fact' that putting a squash ball inside the glove makes the ball go further or a mi**** go for four or six which it wouldnt otherwise.
If not then whats the point in comparing it to some hypothetical shoes that would make you run faster.
Get a squash ball from the bazaar tomorrow and try it and come back and report tomorrow on whether it made your shots go further.
I think we can rest assured that 1 or 2 other people might just be trying it sometime soon...
In any case, it doesn't seem to be a matter of improving the potency of "mi****s" ( nigh****chman clas****) but of inadvertantly improving the technique.

It's as apocryphal as "You guys are history" and "Hersch, you've just dropped the World Cup".
The latter of those and the Hendren story, however, have grown for a reason, and would be excellent character-references for the players (Waugh and Jardine) in question
