His average was only in the 30's (granted it was good for the time, but not world beating), and when he got out he used to convince the umpires to let him keep batting because 'the crowd only came to see me bat'.

Pffft

Furthermore, what the fuck is PIEterson doing in there??!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

I was astounded he wasn't a part of the nominations on cricinfo, that's what I went from. I'd have him as a manager or something.


Dan, I don't fucking understand why Pietersen's there either. Fair enough the public picked him, but the 'esteemed' panel too??

Can't wait for your opinion on Bradman.

hey dan something funny happened to me the other day. i was chillin at uni with some mates and one of em was talking about some motocross rider or something, saying how good he is blah blah. then he said "he's like the greatest sportsman of all time". and me being me, i never really get into heated debates or anything, even if someone's not really right. but i just said, no. and he's like what? i said this is one argument you will never, ever win with me. well who do you reckon? bradman, i said. "bullshit". five minutes later i won the argument.

some idiot then chimed in with "his average was 99.94 yeah? how fucking shattered would you be? see i'd rather average 50, at least then you're right on it, not just short". moron.

according to someone, i can't remember where i read it, but apparently coldplay's chris is a handy fast bowler and a reasonable bat.

the 'learn to bat like chris martin' videos on youtube are hilarious and he's in them, good humour.

Maybe Chris Martin is good enough to be in the English test side?
