"How shit you must be if I got you out twice!"

Today on Ctalk we managed to track down Graeme Swann who is just heading out to celebrate England's thumping victory.

" Hi Graeme, how are things?"
"Good mate"
"How are you feeling after today's victory?"
"Just okay?"
"How come?"
"Well you see, there is this blog called Cricket Minded. She doesn't like me. I have tried very, very hard to impress her over the last couple of months. I've worked hard on my bowling, I have variations now and I've bagged two MOM awards. Plus I'm so funny. But she still won't say anything good about me."
"Umm, you do know she is a Saffa supporter. Doing so well against them won't help."
"But I thought all I had to do was play good cricket?"
"Not against her favourite team darling. Surely, your ingenious brains would have figured that out."
"Don't cry! I'm sure she will admit it next time. Who do you play next?"
"Oh damn! Okay, have fun celebrating! G'night!"

Back in the office we dug up Cricket Minded's official statement regarding the game so we could send dear Graeme a gift for his achievements. It read...oh dear. Maybe we will just send him a card.

Hey Purna,
Don't you think Ntini should be dropped from the side...? He is just going through the motions at the moment and the SA bowling is really handicapped due to him and also considering the fact that Steyn is just getting back to the groove after the injury lay off. Fridel De Wet was looking good in the first test.

For sure Baiju!! I said it even before the Durban test and I had wondered whether it would cost them the win. And it did!! Except, Friedel can't do this by himself. Morne needs to step it up and of course stupid Dale. It would also be nice if Paul was able to hide his real bowling skills and take some wickets!
