Brett Lee then. Yeah, sure, the bloke has some heat, and he's bowled some fine stuff in recent ODIs. But! Last night with the pressure on he bowled yet another beamer to McCullum. Then if that wasn't bad enough, he followed up with a bizarre, brainless, look-at-me-I'm-a-fuckwit bouncer. "What a pudding-head! What a peanut! What a cock!" I bawled at the television.
Lewis & Clark. No, not the explorers, the Aussie bowlers. They went alright, didn't they. Especially Lewis, who reminded me of Swaugh at the 1987 World Cup.
Rasta Symonds or Kevin Pietersen? Discuss.
Speaking of bunnies - Donny Darko was on SBS last night. Here's how Clark Forbes reviewed it:
Dawson's Creek meets The Twilight Zone when a sleep-walking high school student is saved from a plummeting aircraft engine by a rabbit called Frank. Not surprisingly, the kid becomes convinced that world is about to end. If it ever worked out what it wanted to be when it grew up, perhaps we could take it seriously. One Star.
If the film makes as much sense as the review (Well, the last sentence, anyway - what's "it"?) then I'd better avoid it. Not just that, but a blogger who knows his or her onions told me it was "Pretentious rubbish! What's more So-And-So likes it." So-And-So liking it is enough for me to run a mile. Not that DD has much to do with cricket.
Lee out - Mitchell Johnson in. A good pick, says me.
Uncapped Queensland left-armer Mitchell Johnson will fly into Christchurch to join the Australian squad for the third and final match of the series, to be played at Jade Stadium on Saturday.
