Closing Out Outside Cricket Day

Thought I’d stick up some more of my snaps to finish the day. There’s no match report today as both TLG and I saw none of the game….

Cricket at Tunbridge Wells
Hundred Up for Alviro Petersen
Jacques Kallis – 2012
Graham Napier in his six-hitting masterclass at Whitgift
Trent Bridge – England v New Zealand – 2008

You have to love the game. You really do.

    I was unable to open There is a Point. Page not found.
    I’m sad now.

    I absolutely love that picture of Ramps and would gladly have that framed on my (tiny) office wall.
    The timing of your photo is superb. Love it.

    Being the obsessive oddball that I obviously am, I just went and took a look at the recent Telegraph poll on KP. Out of 5824 people who voted on whether KP should play in the coming T20 World Cup, 5067 or 87% said that he should.
    Now my questions are, what sort of people are these 5067? Do they represent normal cricket followers? Have they been following England for decades, like me? What do they think of the antk-KP commentators and journalists? It’s highly unlikely that the majority of these will now change their minds on KP. After all, we’ve won the Ashes and beaten SA away and still they (we) want KP back. Is this a representative sample in any way, or self selecting? Even if the latter, we are still talking about a sizable chunk of cricket followers who don’t like the ECB, many journalists and commentators, Cook, Strauss, Anderson and others. They know a massive stichup and injustice has been done and they (we) are not ever going away. Quite stunning and extraordinary!

      It’s not just the DT neither. Other papers have done polls, one was definitely the Mirror and the ones I have seen have all been 80+% in favour of the South African Born Batsman’s inclusion. Must be a handful of oddballl obsessives doing multiple entries.

      No match report on TFT neither, sounds like James has the flu. Will have to slum it and go to MSM for a report

      These polls just confirm that the ECB and their media fluffers are lying through their teeth. According to them no one wants him back. I don’t belive anything the ECB tells me. When I hear Strauss or Nasser I just think “why are you lying to me?”

      Nasser and the Mails interview was a Hollywood production of shite. Morgan looks a pratt as well claiming it’s his choice. Probably had to say what he did. Do you have to swear a loyalty oath to the the ECB overlords now if you want to be in the team? It’s more like a banana Republic than a governing body.

      What these polls show is that even a two year non stop campaign of lies and bullshit by their Pravda media, and you still can’t fool a goood section of the people.

      I will Always and forever be outside English cricket now. Too many liars on the inside.

        “Probably had to say what he did”.

        Why? They’re a cricket board, not the Tonton Macoute. Morgan’s in quite a strong position at the moment with good personal form and leading a side with some good results. If you have some capital in the bank, the savvy thing is to spend some of it at the right time. Again, it’s not mainly his fault and he’s in a tricky position, but he has not played this well.

        It may be wishful thinking but he didn’t have a good game yesterday (batting or captaincy) and I’d like to think there was a bit of a guilty conscience in there somewhere playing a small part.

        I know what you mean Simon but all the players are under 24 hour monitoring by the Stasi media for anything that is not blind obedience to the official line.

        I really don’t think Morgan can say what he really wants. He already had that scum bag Newman calling for his head before.
