India, world Twenty20 champions, bat like pillocks

Brett Lee fills time after the game via interpretative danceWe’ve no problem branding professional cricketers as ‘pillocks’. That’s the kind of fearless reportage you get here at King Cricket. We’re not afraid to bandy strong words around. We’re not afraid to bandy anything, because we’re not totally sure what bandying entails.

Irfan Pathan was the sole Indian batsman to make it into double figures on a day when you could throw the ball to Adam Voges to mop up the tail and he’d actually manage it.

90,000 people watched this match. Bet they wished Australia had batted first at least. You’d be lucky to get half-cut in 28 overs. That’s no day at the cricket.


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. There is no finer sight, than that of a fast bowler performing interpretive dance, at the end of a hard fought cricket match.

    I will bring this up at North Middlesex CC’s AGM.

    I’m sure it will be a huge hit.

  2. It was a night at the cricket, actually – something to do with being on the other side of the world, you know – and 80,000 of us were perfecctly satisfied with seeing Australia bowl the nuts off the tourists.

  3. Fair enough. Bet you still wished Australia had batted first though.

    If there’s one thing better than thrashing your opponent, it’s REALLY thrashing your opponent.

  4. 20-20 is a joke…quit creating your reputations about teams on 20-20. Its like street cricket where either all tumble like pins or one guy stands up and hits every thing out of the park.

    Its too much on Luck…lets get serious now with the one day series coming up.

  5. It was without a doubt the most boring game of cricket I’ve ever been to. Batting side A stuffs it up within 4 overs and spends the rest of their innings hitting singles and trying to not get out. Batting side B responds by hitting singles slightly faster. Yawn. The winning run was a wide, which was a fitting end.
