How bloody good are we at saying other people are ace at cricket? We’re really bloody good at it – that’s how bloody good at it we are.
Perhaps it’s because we’ve spent our entire life honing our sense of how much everyone else is better than us. Show us someone and we’ll instantly tell you how they’re better than us.
Yuvraj Singh is better than us because he’s the finest one-day international batsman in the world. He’s better than us because he’s got rare talent, a great eye, unbelievable timing and astonishing power. He’s better than us because he managed to hit six sixes in an over.
The six sixes off poor, hapless Stuart Broad – who became visibly younger with each inevitable blow – formed the unusually brief bulk of his innings of 58 off (count ’em) 16 balls.
Absolutely stunning and if the Indian public don’t go for Twenty20 now, they never will.
