Finally... IT'S TIME!!!


It's time for some cricket again!

But hold on...
If you thought it was about this...

...sorry to disappoint you.

Who cares for that T20 shit?
Well, maybe some do.

But I don't.

I was talking about this:

The Fab-Four looks out of sorts...

Yes, some real cricket!
Good old Test cricket.

The Border Gavaskar Series gets underway, tomorrow!

Call me old fashioned if you must, but I still love to see a good contest between bat and ball. Great cricketers working hard, exercising patience, elegant strokes - not 'shut my eyes and swing the bat' shit - and much more. A real fight. That's what Test cricket is all about. A true test of character, skill ant patience.

Not this "wham, bam, thank you ma'm" T20 rubbish.

And this series might mark the end of an era in cricket.
In two ways.

First, the Fabulous Four of India were mesmerized by Splendid Mendis (thanks Damith) and looked out of sorts in Sri Lanka.
Ganguly has already announced that this will be his last series, and it might well be the same for the other three Fabs. They are quite likely to Lose their Balls.
Hence, for us Test cricket fans it will be a sad day, but a one last opportunity to see those greats in action.

The Aussies are unsettled...

Then, Aussies are a totally new look team. And are with all sorts of problems.
Their spinners got hammered in the warm up game.
The batting is not settled.
In short, Ponting is shitting in his pants at the moment.
We will get to see how this new outfit will do under pressure...

All in all, I can't wait for it to get started.


Test cricket ROCKS!!!


  1. Indeed it does.
    Although I see a potentially drawn out series where both teams struggle for 20 wickets.

    But the wait is over! Couldnt have come soon enough.
