James Anderson wants to be Mashrafe Mortaza

Poor Jimmy. He can't believe that he has been passed over for the vice-captain position. He really felt that he deserved it and is upset at the ECB for shattering his dreams to be captain of England one day. You see, when Jimmy grows up, he wants to be just like Mashrafe Mortaza.

Mashrafe Mortaza is everything Jimmy claims or aspires to be.

1) He is the spearhead of Bangladesh's pace attack.
2) He is quick, aggressive and a match-winner at his peak.
3) He is also a handy nightwatchman.
4) He cost KKR $600,000.
5) He is the captain of Bangladesh.

If another fast bowler can lead his team, asks Jimmy, why can't he? He puts it down as 'regionalism' i.e. something to do with the fact that he is from the Northern part of England. I would like to say this is the funniest shit I've heard in a while, but my mouth is currently wide open in laughter.

The Poms are like the joke that keeps on giving.

Hi there. Please comment on my Pakistani cricket blog and I should do the same on yours.

He certainly does have character but the ability? I doubt it? and is Mortaza the skipper of Bangldesh? I thought it was Sakhib Ul Hassan..?

God, that is funny.

Only James Anderson thinks he should captain England.

He could have been from Surrey, gone to Eton and played for Middlesex and no-one in their right minds would have considered him for a leadership role.

Boomboom, Done.

Chris, Shakib is the vice-captain. Mortaza is injured at the moment. But he is the real captain.

Lula, has he EVER captained a side? However, does England like the prospects of Cook being their captain? Even he is a joke!
