Everyone knows about Dennis Lillee’s aluminium bat, but Sachin Tendulkar’s experiment with a helium-filled bat is less well known.

  3. “away”, or dodging the difficult subject?

    I know what I believe.

    They’ve gone round to Morrison’s, bought a load of cheap pork pies and and are now, as I type, gorging themselves whilst watching GMTV hoping to advoind the sports news.

    I know the truth. I know….

  4. This is why I hide in here. free from the mockery of the rest of the intertubes’ grammar and spelling fundamentalists.

    I actually know very little about cricket. It’s like baseball right?
