The site won’t be much fun for Aussies for almost the whole of next week, but we thought we’d break up the gloating with a couple of other pieces.
Our first Paul Collingwood retirement post is over at The Wisden Cricketer website and the second will appear here at King Cricket next week. We hope some of you read both these posts, because it would seem that Paul Collingwood embodied something we feel quite strongly about, judging by how bad-tempered we got. Plus, everyone else who has written about him is MASSIVELY WRONG.
Also, if you can find a copy of this month’s issue of The Wisden Cricketer (it’s proving strangely popular for some reason) then we’ve done a review of 2010 that appears in it. We haven’t seen the finished version yet, but we’re pretty sure we remember the piece being fully amazing. If it fails to deliver on that promise, then, er, something was lost in the editing process.
Anyway, Collingwood first.
