Australia survive West Indies scare

That's the headline that Crapinfo used to sum up the game that none of us watched today. Except for maybe the first ball. Here's what happened in a nutshell:

1) Michael Clarke did not play the game because of a sore back. In the pre-match interview, Ricky put it as 'Yeah, Clarke has a sore back from the flight or whatever'. With a name like Pup, I guess we are not surprised that sitting for a long time would be enough to fuck up his twig like body.

2) Hussey scored less than 10. Again. What does he have to do to let Merv know that he can't play cricket anymore?

3) Witchy Mitchy did some hocus pocus on the Windies bowlers, so they allowed him to reach his half-century. He is re-launching his campaign as an all-rounder. You will need some pretty dark magic to make us believe, Mitchy. Voldemort's hotline is 1-800-You-are-a-bad-boy-for-abandoning-your-mother.

4) Brett Lee did not bowl a single no ball. But he got only 8 overs. I am confident that two more and we would have seen at least 5.

5) Even without Chris Gayle and Dwayne Bravo, WI managed to get past 200. What does Australia have to do to prove to the world that they are not good at cricket anymore?

You're supposedly a person who loves cricket because you have "knowledge" of the game, yet we, as readers are constantly subjected to the bullshit you keep writing about. You must be really proud of the little you actually do know. Another thing, funnily enough, you don't follow the game to watch "lusty men" sweat it out, but judging from which players the majority of your posts are centred around, it seems that's your main motivation.

Aah, a critic. More interestingly an Anonymous critic. Don't value your opinions enough to put a name on it eh?
If I write bullshit don't read it :).
Do you have a blog that can teach me how to write knowledgeable things on cricket? Pray do share. I am always up for learning.

Stani Army said...

Anonymous is right about the lusty men part. She just cant stop talking about me.

Purna said...

Stani, please don't try to sell yourself as a cricketer again. It just won't work :P. I write only abt lusty 'cricketers' :P.

Gaby said...

don't listen to someone who hasn't enough courage to even tell his/her name! you're doing a great job Purna, keep it up!

Stani Army said...

Thanks for calling me lusty Purn! Wooooooooo!

Purna said...

Thanks Gaby. Much appreciated.

Stani, first time in your life eh? :P

Stani Army said...

Yeh Purn, makes a change from the usual stuff you call me: honey bun, sugar dumpling, sweetie pie, cuppie cake, buttercup, schnookums, gummy bear, fluffykins...shall I go on?

Esra Star said...

When you have to put up a fight against a second string Windies you know as an Australian that our cricket team in fucked. Hussey needs to retire, we have to stop relying on Mitch to bat & Pup needs to get Lara off his god damned back!

Btw Stani, stop flirting your lusty cricketing good looks around! :oP

Ah a troll... Good you are getting noticed. Must be your favourite buffalo G.Smith. Has to be him.

Purna said...

Stani, lies will get you a free ticket to cricket hell and a medical checkup with Shoaib Akhtar.

Es, every god damn team seems to be playing horribly in this tournament. SA's struggling against England at the moment. I can't take this!

SP, you watched the game? HAHA. Thanks for the support.

Esra Star, you and Purna are dead right - Hussey needs to give it up and the selectors need to stop selecting him. I always have a soft spot for my fellow West Aussies, but when the game is up, Mikey, you need to accept it.

Notice that Hussey is playing again today, while Clarke isn't. Why? Why? Why?

If we can only just beat West Indies B, how are we going to beat India? Heaven help us.
