So let me get this straight.

India is chasing 160 they bat like shit and fall in a hole.

Make em chase 317 and all of a sudden there a huge chance.

Go figure.

My mate last night was talking about how bowlers should be great batsman. I called him a dickhead, and then when Sharma got bowled, I just smiled.

That game on Friday night was one of the best games. We should have smashed them, apart from the fact that our batsmen chose now as the perfect time to all bat like shit.

An interesting note, for Canadian cricket fans, Sri Lanka is going to adopt the Canada cricket team. This is going to be a real boost to up the level of the team.


Sri Lanka Cricket chief Arjuna Ranatunga who made an official visit to Canada last week held talks with Canadian Cricket Association on the ways to offer Sri Lanka’s help for the development of the sport in Canada

During the discussions, Ranatunga has agreed to “adopt” the Canada’s national cricket team in an interesting move which would see Sri Lanka assuming the responsibility of nurturing the Canadian side to the highest international level.

The agreement between the two Cricket Boards will be signed very soon, according to sources in Canada.

Once the move is finalised, Sri Lanka will be the first South Asian Country to adopt a western Cricket playing country and it will be done on the same lines how Australia had helped Bangladesh before test status.

Better than a stick in the eye I'd say. They have nothing to lose.

True that.

Looks like this RSA v India wicket is a batting wicket.

can't believe the thrashing RSA is giving India at the moment
only a miracle will keep them from beating India (at home) with more than an innings

didn't see that one coming to be honest

Dunno, players don't take it seriously, matches can be decided very quickly.

Ironically, and it's a testament to the sport of cricket, the more fast-paced a cricket match is, the more dull it can be. Test cricket will always be the only format that matters...

The players not taking it seriously is what makes it so appealing to me. I would hate for Twenty20 to become a commodity where it's as serious as test cricket... players mucking around, having fun, the music, it's what we want.

Don't know if I can agree with that sentiment either... Test cricket is mroe dull, though you're right, test cricket is the absolute pinnacle.

Shit, I missed the start of it. I see New Zealand's Brendon McCullum blasted 158 not out off 73.

It's kinda hard to figure out who the hell to support though, especially with the comical team names ...

Cricinfo says it's the highest individual score in Twenty20 thus far. Fucking impressive.

And get this. On the Chennai Super Kings (who're playing now) is a player called ... wait for it ...

NAPOLEON EINSTEIN

BEST. NAME. EVER.
