Sickeningly wrong-handed purveyor of off-cutters, Nathan Bracken, has once again ended a one-day international with disgustingly flattering figures. Bracken took 5-46 as Sri Lanka were bowled out for just 125, chasing Australia’s 253.
We’ve long since accepted that Nathan Bracken is a more-than-useful one-day bowler, but we don’t have to bloody well like it. It’s not even his hair, it’s how well-disguised his wiliness is. He may well be a smart bowler, but it’s masked by a veneer of innocuosity and gorm.
