Brad Hogg bowling to Sachin Tendulkar

Sachin Tendulkar batting the ball away in a special run-scoring move“He hit my best ball for six,” Hogg said. Yes – and you get the impression that Sachin Tendulkar could quite easily hit any delivery he chooses for a boundary. He’s only holding back so that Hogg doesn’t get taken off.

He and VVS Laxman got a bit carried away at one point though and carted Hogg for 18 off an over. Too greedy. They forced Ponting to bring, er, Michael Clarke back into the attack.

We’re full of admiration for Sachin Tendulkar. If we were in his position we’d go foetal and weep. That would be at the point of exiting the bed first thing as well. If we made it to the crease in a Test match, we’d adopt the same position only we’d try to dig a huge hole to hide in using only our face.

Cricketers are often at risk of dehydration, but not normally as a direct result of copious tears of surrender.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. The tongue…

    My god the tongue… It haunts me..

    I dreamt that he was running after me, trying to lick my ears last night. It was horrible!

    Hopefully tonight, Sachin will protect me, by smashing him all over Adelaide (the dullest city in the world).

    Either that, or he’ll bite through it in frustration.

  2. 1) We are lucky, aren’t we, to have Sachin in the world.

    2) I think the words “meat” “hogg” “hayden” and “sandwich” together should be banned, like those banned lists of olympic words.

  3. Oh dear WG Grace,

    Uncle J, there really is no need to further corrupt my tiny mind.

    That’s going to haunt my every living thought. I need to bleach my mind, with tubgirl or goatse, or something equally as disturbing as your image!

  4. Leaving aside the unpleasant imagery of a hogg/hayden sandwich, ‘Sach’ does appear to be back on top of his form. Imagine what he’d be doing to England’s Test bowlers at the moment – most of them would be ‘going foetal’ (the new ‘going postal’?) in no time.
