Part 1: Flowers just don't smell nice
Gutsy Stuff from Andy Flower and Henry Olongo regarding the death of democracy in Zimbabwe. Hope they don't run into any problems after the World Cup. Wonder what Nelson Mandela, who believes morals don't matter ANY MORE, thinks about that?
On the more important issue of the Fantasy World Cup, my boy Sanath vindicated his selection in the AGB Gentlemen's XI. Well played lad!
Part 2: Would you trust a doctor who can't spell Trevor?
Just getting in with a cheap shot before we hear the real
spin story facts dammit! FACTS!
Can Warney be replaced in the selected squad?
Is he guilty before the "B Test" comes in?
Considering his shoulder, is his absence going to matter?
He recovered VERY quickly after his shoulder injury. Nudge. Nudge. He HAD lost a lot of weight. Wink. Wink. I once saw him in a chemist.
How long before the Sri Lankans accuse the Aussies of going easy on Warne, then linking it to our stance on Chinese swimmers, Muralitharan or genetically modified chicken McNuggets?
Part 3: Kenya's nice this time of year.
Should New Zealand have sent in a spin-laden Sri Lanka?
Did the dodgy pitches in NZ last month mean they over-rated their own firepower?
Will the Kiwi's, now needing the points in Nairobe, imitate Nelson Mandela's movable morals, and visit Kenya after all? Incoming Spin Alert!
And what's this?
"The Sri Lankan off-spinner throws rather than bowls the ball," he wrote.
"I've heard all about how he's had a deformity since birth and is therefore unable to straighten his right arm."
"If that's the case, then that's bad luck for Murali. He's still breaking the laws of cricket and therefore should not be allowed to bowl."
"The reason I'm a little sceptical of the birth deformity story anyway is that I have seen him bowling leg-spinners (when trying to complete an over after being no-balled) and he's bowled them very well."
"It is virtually impossible to bowl leg-spin with a bent arm."
Sense from Ian Smith?!? Truly a big day in cricket!
