How do you spell JP's last name?

Cricinfo says it's Duminy.

Wikipedia says it's Duminy.

Even Sky Sports is saying it's Duminy.

But he is on twitter (it's definitely him...and while we are at it AB's one is real as well) and his name on it is JPDumminy21.

Does the man not know how to spell his name or have we been seriously mislead all these years? Or maybe JP is simply a man of many dimensions.

The man with one 'm' is a cricketer.
The man with two is on twitter.
The man with one 'm' is the soft spoken, patient one we see in tests.
The man with two is the rabid beast we see in T20's.
The man with one 'm' silently asphyxiates the opposition.
The man with two slashes, cuts and violates them.

Or maybe I am entertaining myself because it is 2am and the game is STILL an hour away. But why must JP fuck with my mind like this?

My sense of truth feels violated.

Yep, sounds like you are bored waiting for the cricket to start. Never mind, you are now well on the way to winning this one.

Lions, lions, lions ... can sleep in peace this time.

P.S. I've been sending nasty tweets to Graham Swann for you, just to put him off for today.

What has happened to the Saffer attack? Is Steyn missed this much?

Mind you, what happened to the Oz attack? We don't have an international class one anymore and I'm starting to worry about the Saffers as well.

Same problem with many pakistani players....

Is it Yunus or Younis Khan?


I wrote an article about your blog. Do take a look at Best of 2009 - (My favorite articles by my fellow bloggers)

Poshin :D

Godammit - how did they hold on for a draw? Nightmares of Cardiff filtering back ...

Still love Colly - of course he did it.

Purna please! Bring on the match post... or I'll implode right here right now. Where is your shoulder... :(

BTW how are the chances that Friedel wants to marry me? If you say he won't, what about Morne? While you are calculating, I'll keep whistling Black Sabbath's "Friedel the beedle" .

Concerning your Parnell explanation from the other post, I've read it carefully with a lightbulb over the head. There is a discussion going on whether he should have got called up. To be honest, in the matches I saw him he impressed me more than Steyn. Much more... But he didn't get the call for the next tests... pity. I hope his time will come.

And... are they seriously going to replace
Friedel the Wet by Dale Steyn? No. They can't do that. They just can't :(

Funny, when I wrote the D word today, I had second thots too.

I think due to IPL, Duminy spent a lot of time in India and with people related to Bollywood where it is normal to spell your own name wrong by adding another alphabet or repeating an alphabet to bring you good luck. Something to do with numerology and alphabets corresponding to some number. Yep thats why Duminy is spelling his name wrong, he is trying to impress the IPL guys.

Duminys' twitter account isn't real. Carly Weinberg(who is rumoured to be ABs' girlfriend) said so on twitter today.

Sid, I actually thought that I had slept myself back to the Ashes.

Vim, Steyn wouldn't have been missed that much if Morne and Makhaya had done their part...which they didnt.

Chris, I know! I think it's Younis...and thanks for the mention :).

Wes, sorryy! I don't see any flesh remains on my blog so I am guessing you didn't implode? Thanks! And Friedel might still stay...Morne might get dropped. Or Dale might not be back. Parnell wont have the patience to bowl consistently for a day I feel. But I guess we won't know till his time comes.

NC, I read your post about the last session. No comments :P. Haha.

Ray, you might be onto something there.

Mia, I think Carly reads my blog. Haha.

But I don't want Morne to get dropped...
... he has potential *lol*
