The England Hedgehogs review!

I’m one of those freaky fellas, what bowls with the wrist!

Young Buck, Adil Rashid performed rather nicely again, out in India, for The Hedgehogs..

Scoring 40 runs, and then a very tight four over spell of leg-spin, for 6 runs.

During the recent Duleep Trophy, he averaged 56 with the bat (2 not outs), and 18 with the ball!

For the whole hedgehog tour, it’s 57 with the bat, and 25.22 with the ball.

That’s proper fucking mental all-rounder material..

I’m starting to have sexytime dreams about this fella.  I feel the urge to take him to Savile Row, and get him all suaved up!

Now this brings me to a bit of a quandary…

I catched it mummy..  I is happy.

The Sikh Of Tweak, is out there at the moment too, and has bowled excellently, averaging 23.2 with ball.

His batting average is 2.5

Rashid has a better strike rate, worse economy rate, and worse overall bowling average.

However, he averages a kazillion more with the bat, and he can field (a very good fielder).

I love Monty, but I’d be picking rashid against the Kiwis this summer, in his place.

Hedgehog Hotshot, hits highs..

Michael Carberry, is starting to look like a proper cricketer, after scoring a ton in his last game, and adding 67 (top-scoring) today.

Another top performer, with an average of 56.5, at the top of the order.

During the 2007 domestic season, he also averaged over 50 scoring more than a 1000 runs.

Graham Onions

hedgehog hotstuff #3

Onion’s bowled nicely today for his career best figures of 7/39.  He’s got a long way to go before he’s The England class, but he’s moving in the right direction.

I admire your restraint in not making an Onions joke.

Comment by Miriam

I thought long and hard about it.. And I came to the conclusion, that he’s just not worth it..

He’s in the England A team, yet averages over 30. Which is pants.

Look at the bling on Carberry.

Comment by Uncle J Rod

He does like his bling that boy..

But a boy can have all the bling he wants, if he’s performing well!

Bowled Onions, Caught Mustard jokes and such wonderful variants were the order of the day when they were together at Durham, perhaps we shall one day see a reprise of that for England.
