Suave's Republique Cricket

Why is wicky a wanky old foreign fella?

I’m a wanky wicky, with a rapidly receding hairline.

So we now have another new wicketkeeper..

Tim Ambrose (who wasn’t considered to be better than Matt Prior at Sussex).

What is it with foreign born wicketkeepers?

Geraint Jones was born in Papua New Guinea but grew up in Australia.

Matt Prior is a dirty saffer, who must have had elocution lessons, because he’s lost that stupid accent.

Tim Ambrose is an aussie with an English mother.

Also at every opportunity Warne puts Nic Pothas’ name forward, and he’s half greek, half saffer. So he’s a philosophising, homosexual, arrogant twat.

Whatever happened to eccentric English madmen behind the stumps, think Alan Knott or Jack Russell.

The two best wicketkeepers (with the gloves, not that stupid Australian thing where there keepers also average high 40’s and can catch) we’ve had over the last five or so years are James Foster and Chris Read.

We don’t want Read going to New Zealand though, as they’ll all laugh at him for ducking under a slower ball from Chris Cairn.

So that leaves James Foster, at home it would appear!

Fuck, I’m good at the limbo!

Why stop at wicket-keepers?

Funny story in NZ papers today. Andrew Strauss, who has a short-term contract with Northern Districts (that’s a NZ provincial side people) is unable to make his debut due to being held up by a malfunction in the plane that he was catching from his home.

The plane was coming from Johannesburg…

I did read that! He’s a bloody saffer too, but we let him off, because he’s really posh.

I saw that he’s going to make his debut on Saturday instead of tomorrow now.
I’ll have to keep my eye out on him, as he’s been picked for the test squad. Let’s hope that a long rest, has turned him into the batsman that set the world alight (in a sort of Mike Hussey way), three years ago!

[…] Tim Ambrose gets a chance behind the stumps after a remarkable season in county cricket last year. Although it’s worth remembering, that two years ago, he wasn’t good enough to lick Matt Priors boots! […]
