Grow some balls Gary

I was really happy when I realized Durby wasn't in the third test. I thought someone had stood up to the injustice that is Harbhajan Singh and axed him. Maybe Gary Kirsten had the balls to go up to the selectors and threatened to quit if he was included again. But to be honest, it doesn't look like he does. Because the only reason the bastard is not in the team is because he is injured.

Then again, it looks like no one has the balls to drop Durby. Either that or he is the selection board's secret keeper and will open his mouth the minute they let him go. There is literally no other way of explaining this.

But I do think that there are plenty of ways to drop him and most of them has to start with Gary Kirsten. He is the fucking coach! Why doesn't he get to drop those who harm the effort the rest of the team puts in? If Durby doesn't perform, he probably needs to spend extra time with him, when he could very well have used that extra time on someone who isn't a lost cause. And yes, Durby is a lost cause. Otherwise, don't you think he would have at least been ashamed of his pie chucking by now and attempted to be a little bit more effective?

So c'mon Gary! Walk into that selection meeting room and break some chairs. Light Durby's Hummer on fire if he doesn't quit himself. Kidnap the rest of the team and negotiate for a Indian cricket team without Durby. Tie Durby to a chair and force him to watch his own bowling till he realizes it's shit.

Or better yet INJURE HIM FOR LIFE!

Well, well, well. If only you were the Indian coach....sigh!

I think Durby dropped himself so that Mishra can score that bowling century instead of him - and when the selectors stack up the numbers, there is someon below him in bowling averages. So that he will be selected for next series.

See, thats how clever our Durby is.

Leave that Durby as his bowling is always a shit but what about your Elliott as his batting is becoming shit? I see he scored 10 today in Lanka.

I work with the Barmy Army and saw your post. Can really feel your passion coming through! You should be the next coach.
Also for all those who are heading out to Australia for the Ashes make sure you get your tickets for The Barmy Army Xmas and New Years Eve Parties – Get your tickets quick as they are selling out fast http://tiny.cc/vxb7j

Well raj, Mishra isn't helping his case either! How does a spinner bowl this many no balls!!

Grey, Which Elliott?? I'm confused. And grey are you going to the Ashes. You could buy tickets from Hayley.

Barry said...

I thought you liked Grant Elliott? Ashes? to see another defeat at the hands of Australia lol.

Purna said...

I do, but why is he in Sri Lanka? Dude, I am horribly out of touch with cricket...it sucks!

I'm not too sure you will lose. I was before, now..I don't know! The Aussies are being quite crappy at cricket these days.

Barry said...

NZ are in Lanka to play a tri-series and they are playing warm up games. The third team is again India lol.

As soon as the plane lands in Australia players would get injured. Every-time England play in Australia players get injured lol.

Realistically this time there is a good chance of winning in OZ but who knows players may again get injured.
