    That's mostly M Johnson. He's the guy who f.cked us up the most, after promising so much during the SA tour. I dunno what happened to him. My money is on "Englsih women". Everyone knows about English women.

    T-20 world cup finals here we come.

    I thought we'd lose against Pakistan. They have a better team but luckily their batsmen are out of form.

    Shocking news.

    Is this the first time a sports team has been specifically targeted by terrorists since the Munich olympics?
    So much controversy still surrounds it. It didn't have anything to do with the Sri Lankan civil war. What is sad is, SL is the only team that agreed to travel to Pakistan (thanks to the friendship between the two countries) due to all the security issues they were/are having.

    The security lapse that occurred only made it worse for the Pakistanis. Since the attacks no team has traveled to Pakistan. In the end it was the Pakistani bus driver who saved the lives of all the Sri Lankans and not their stupid defense ministry.

    I hope that no team would go to Pakistan atleast for another 100 years. It was the duty of those clowns to protect the visiting team and add to it it the Sri Lankan team was the only team that dared to go there and that they promised to protect them. Forget about promises, it is their duty.

    I've noticed that Australian commentators and their fans are exceptionally harsh on their players. It is ridiculous, especially considering the fact that the Aussies win so many matches and does it so consistently.

    It's like Canadians and hockey. Ice hockey, that is. Canada has won more world hockey championships, more olympic gold medals, more women's world championships, more women's olympic gold medals, more world junior championships, etc., than any other country (in the women's competitions more than EVERY other country COMBINED): anything less than 1st place is considered a failure.

    I think I could like cricket. It seems more quickly paced and straight forward than baseball, looks fun to watch.

    I like baseball too, and it's cool to watch the complicated strategic plays of baseball due to the base runners being in play trying to score, but cricket seems more immediately exciting because they either score right away or don't since there's just the two wickets, and they may get multiple points.

    Edit: baseball does get a little ridiculous at times though since runners can go and wander away from the bases pretty much any time the ball is in play, including when the pitcher has it in hand, which some times results in silly duels where a runner is trying to steal and the pitcher keeps trying to throw him out.

    Likewise kiwis are the strongest critics of the All Blacks (the NZ rugby team), even though they've been the dominant team in the sport virtually from its inception. They don't even restrict their criticism to losses. Even rampant victories are not immune. This is probably why they're so good. The players and the team itself are held to nigh-impossible standards, rather than just expected to win.

    I remember playing street cricket outside Croydon College with my friend from secondary school and his friends/family, that was cool - They was all from Sri Lanka, I think, I knew my friend and his family were, although, I think one of them was Sri Lankan born and German raised... I was just there, getting high, hanging out as usual, and then my friend from my old school shows up with his friends playing cricket. That was fun.

    I miss that place.

    Not turning the TV on to watch the news because it'll probably be a bunch of pussies whining and whining about this shit.
