Draw

December 21, 2021

You know the old joke about how cricket is stupid because you can play for five days and not get a result, well the next time someone says that to you punch them in the face, kick them when they hit the ground, take their wallet, and then piss on them.

While they are recovering, go get some gasoline and a match, while they burn to death, look at their address and go after their family.

Because the Pom Windies draw was magnificent.

You can read through my thoughts on the twitter feed as it happened.

I did get excited at times, and occasionally i asked for play to be abonded due to rain.

I loved this fucking ending though, it had some salt in it.

 

Fading light.

Dud tailenders holding the fort.

Gutsy allrounder bowling in pain.

Favourite pushing for victory.

Underdog hanging on.

And a draw.

A glorious draw.

This was intense test cricket, and when the Windies held on, i screamed out at the moon.

Am still yet to get that excited about a 2020 game, even though they get results.
