Everybody Talkin’ Bout Gilly

Not yet. But they will. You can already hear the foxsports reporters sharpening their pencils and and getting ready to talk about the magical Adam Gilchrist and his innings of mass destruction in the IPL. There will be no talk of his dropped catch or missed byes. They are no downers when we reflect on the glory days. If Australia lose one game in the world twenty20 thingy there will be talk of how we should ask Gilly probably Hayden back into...

Cricket’s big balls

I have received links to this story from about 30 people. I get less when Sehwagology appears somewhere. So if you all want it, here it is. I am a cricket, and these are my giant balls. Can I just say that the main objection to my site’s logo is that I’ve made the balls too big, clearly that is not the case.

JROD DOES THE ASHES

Being that not enough of you have bought my book, I am forced to make my way into the real world of cricket writing. Shame on you all. For the ashes I wll be in the following places: Helping Patrick Kidd and the Times audience understand Nathan Hauritz. At TWC talking about the main match ups, the chin vs the chest. At crikey I will be here, and here. I might turn up here from time to time as well. There is probably another one I have forgotten....

Ijaz Butt – Unplugged

It is easy to be negative. And fun. But we should also continue to look for the positives in the latest accusations in world cricket. That positive is Ijaz Butt. Not happy with ruining everything in Pakistani cricket he has ever touched, he is now taking the most grown up stance in world cricket by saying, “we aren’t cheaters, you are cheaters, you’ve always hated us, your mum is fat”. This kind of complete crazy bullshit nonsense could...

Extracts from Herschelle Gibbs’ autobiography

At the moment, I have no access to Herschelle Gibbs’ book. But I assume it goes something like this. On women: “I’ve always respected women. When I’m in an orgy, I am constantly asking a woman if she is feeling ok, whether there is anything I can do to make her feel more comfortable. I’ve gone as far as paying for their taxi on the way home. You see, it doesn’t take much to treat a woman right after she’s let you cum in her ass and...

Spot fixing in print

The last edition of the cricket sadist’s quarterly had a piece on spot fixing written by me. It’s now tragically out of date, but I think it’s worth a read. About a year ago a cricketer contacted me to talk about fixing in cricket. He was positive it was happening again, at ICL, IPL and International level. He even specified games that he and others thought it had happened in. I checked into these games and came up with other reasons why...

Previously at the G

Australia Were 10 Peter Siddle’s short of a cricket team. England Batted like the word declaration had never been invented. Hopefully that word has been by tomorrow. Are the ashes won? Sure, why not. Play of the day Anything Ricky Ponting did. Everything Ricky Ponting did. He was just on fire, bowling Clarke and his dodgy back while Smith and Watson watched on, his chats with umpires and batsmen, his slow cool walk in for a run out that...

THE BCCI ICL AMNESTY CEREMONY

In order for any ex ICL player to be let back into proper cricket they have to go through a few ceremonial activities. They shall be flogged by ex test players who are currently finding it tough to make ends meet. Players must bathe themselves in the urine of the pure, the under 23 IPL players. All hairs must be plucked from their bodies, one by one, in a process that should take 5 days. They shall have cheese graters taken over their testicles...

Imagine if the ICC made a major error

We all know that in this perfect world the ICC never make an error. Imagine that this isn’t a perfect world and that they did make errors. Imagine that in this error riddled world the ICC had to release certain information via the internet. Imagine that they might redact certain bits of this information for legal purposes. Imagine that you could actually read behind these redactions if you knew how to work computers in a hot shot manner....
