How to bat your way to a World Cup final

This World Cup really hasn’t turned out as batsman-centric as people imagined. Batting-centric, maybe, but not batsman-centric.

Stop, stop. Wait a minute.

  1. Wise and witty piece, KC. The Mumbai Mirror is worth its cover price for that article alone.

    I particularly like your description of Glenn Maxwell’s batting. The only phrase I would add to the description is “Afridi 2.0”.

  2. Is this the Through The Night thread?

  3. Ever since that post about unarsedness a while back I’ve been trying to figure out which cricketer fits the term best. I think I might have settled on Grant Elliott.

  4. Arse arse arse. We’re in real trouble and I really bloody hate cocky aussies.

  5. I’m poised to win a bottle of wine from a pre-tournament bet. But it feels like a hollow victory. I just can’t bring myself to be happy for Australia.
