Typical Fidel Edwards

Fidel Edwards - mercurialBurns in, takes 3-18, tricks you into thinking he’s finally arrived as a fast bowler, then takes 0-32 in his next spell and finally ends up with those same three wickets for about 120.

Stupid, round-armed short-arse.

Tillakaratne Dilshan’s saving Sri Lanka with 58 not out off 57 balls. We can’t quite believe that he’s 31 and we can’t quite believe that he’s averaging 37 in Tests. We thought both figures were lower. Another mindless, autopilot article about young players finally coming good goes begging.

Once upon a time, we weren’t bound by ‘facts’ and wrote what we felt like.


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. That’s the joy of WI cricket – they are even more unreliable and inconsistent than England – although that’s scarcely credible – just when you think Hurrah! they’ve got it together – they haven’t…

  2. I despair of their bowling attack, I really do..

    Three bowlers capable of 90mph, and on a swinging, seaming, green top, they only took five wickets in the day.


  3. They did drop catches – and Vandort was sooooo out early on. Billy ‘Bent-finger and mind’ Bowden had a shocker.

    And Billy doesn’t have arthritis in his fingers – i’ve seen them straighten.

  4. To be fair, Suave, rain did kill off half the day. They only got 46.3 overs in. They’ve taken 9 wickets in 60 overs now, albeit conceding 267 runs, what a bizarre beast modern Test cricket is….
