It’s Shiv and he’s scoring a hundred

A rare straight-limbed momentWe haven’t seen it, but we bet it was beautiful.

We could watch him play those lithe, supple shots all day. He doesn’t look at all like the chimney sweeps in Mary Poppins when he’s at the crease. He doesn’t rock from side-to-side like a dancing cockney when he ambles down the pitch. And he doesn’t jab his bat out in front of him like it’s an unwieldy, sooty, overlong brush.

He’s all poetry, is Shiv.

    We’ll be doing a couple of updates this week. We’re probably not going to do a review of the year this year, but we do have a new, major, annual award that will be announced before New Year’s Day.

  3. He’s passed fifty in each of the last seven innings now!

    That is impressive…

  4. and on the plus side, the saffers are 102-5!!

    HA HA HA!

  5. I wonder what that Graeme “as long as you don’t bowl on leg i’m f**ked” Smith excuse is this time?

    Maybe along the lines of “We saw a phantom image of Kevin pietersen in the sky and couldn’t concentrate on batting”

  6. An Award? that is new, major AND annual? You are spoiling us!
