Money, retirement and a sad day for anyone who mourns lost brews

Nobody ever thinks of the hot beverages when there’s a natural disaster. But they can be casualties too – as you’ll discover if you read our Twitter round-up for Cricinfo.

Our favourite bit’s Lonwabo Tsotsobe’s blunt realism though, which basically boils down to: ‘Don’t imagine anything good will ever happen – you’ll only be disappointed.’

Surely a sentiment we can all get behind.


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. I most certainly do mourn lost beverages.

    Whenever I learn of a natural disaster, my first thought is always, “I bet some people caught up in that disaster had just made themselves a nice cup of tea and sat down with it for a relaxing break…”

    I’m astonished to learn that others don’t think this way.

    1. Apparently, earthquakes registering higher than a 5 on the Richter Scale can spill tea from a cup, even if it’s Earl Grey. That’s probaby why people in high risk earthquake zones mostly drink coffee.

  2. I’m always fascinated by who has and hasn’t had their twitter account verified with the blue tick. Lonwabo Tsotsobe (who he)? Yep. The legend that is Shaun Pollock? Nope. No logic. Could be the basis of a true or false quiz round.
