Holding Willey

Since I am now nearly graduated and basking in the glories of unemployment, I am writing for Holding Willey. So far, it's just for the upcoming T20 World Cup and I am representing Bangladesh and South Africa.

The articles are serious and by serious I mean they are my genuine attempts to sound like a 'real' cricket writer, with nice words like 'winning combination' and 'match-winner'. I don't know how to make intelligent jokes either, so they are not funny. They are just words, sitting side by side...hoping to make sense!

Thankfully I am allowed to swear, but I have promised them that I will tone it down. So expect lots of regular words disguised as swear words.

Anyway, here is my first article. It's an analysis of the Bangladeshi T20 squad. It has some new things and some things you have already heard here before. But go read it just to find out what I sound like serious.

Just don't sue me for ruining your day afterwards.

Ha ha. You be yourself. That's enough. :) And I'm sure you are not ruining anyone's day.

Except that of a passing Stuart Broad fan, I suppose. Do they exist?

Oh man! I can't wait for them to play so I can bitch and moan. It's difficult being serious you know!

Thanks SP!
