Gary Ballance bares his teeth

A lot. It seems to be his default facial expression while batting. It’s a little disconcerting.

But on the plus side, we’ve already started thinking to ourself: “At least Ballance is still in,” as if he’s the most reliable of the England batsmen. Like Jonathan Trott, you don’t really feel the need to watch him. You just check in on his score every once in a while.

A Test hundred mere days after drinking a bit too much. You wouldn’t think it possible, would you?

  1. You majesty, I am not a native English speaker but in my opinion, all mammals and reptiles unless punched by David Warner, BEAR teeth. Even bears, which are mammals, BEAR teeth. In the case of mammals, the female of the species also BEAR young ones. However, only a few species, like bears and cats, BARE their teeth in order to frighten.

    I thought Gary Ballance always bore teeth. Did he recently start to BARE them at the crease?

      Gah, that’s a bad one. Although almost worth it to get that comment.

    • Superb, Shalabh. The perfect combination of wit and pedantry that this site is based on. Please comment often.

  2. Hands up who else kept Kohli in their fantasy team?

  3. Not gonna lie – this test match has given me multiple orgasms thus far.

  4. Looks like Rahane dropped a mote of dust onto India’s floor. I wish them the best of luck clearing it up.
