Suave's Republique Cricket


Six word review: Pakistan and Bangladesh

So children, it’s time for the last edition of six word reviews (unless Zimbabwer become a test nation again, which doesn’t look as though it’s going to happen any time soon!)

We now rejoin the old Pakistan & East Pakistan, in an old “I met my former flame on facebook after thirty years”, kind of way.

Sweet!

Pakistan

Salman Butt: Funny name, averages thirty, that’s shit.

Nasir Jamshed: Mum makes plum conserves there. Nice!

Younis Khan: One day brilliant, next day shit.

Yousuf Youhana (Mohammad Yousuf): Brilliant, boring, Mama call him Youhana.

Shoaib Malik: Skipper, no-one else wanted it. Alright.

Misbah-ul-Haq: Misbah Cricket: LIke Inzy, but slim.

Shahid Afridi: Mentalist, shall I defend? No, SMASH!

Kamran Akmal: Ugly; used to be good, now rotten

Sohail Tanvir: Bored with seam, how about spin?

Umar Gul: Bad back, moves ball both ways.

Iftikhar Anjum: 27, fuck off, he’s nearly forty!

East Pakistan

Tamim Iqbal: His dad was fatter than Inzy!

Shahriar Nafees:Scared the shit out of Aussies.

Aftab Ahmed: Scored 82no in Durham. Now pony.

Mohammad Ashraful: Big lips. Who’s he looking at?

Raqibul Hasan: Not Saqibul Hasan, which confuses me.

Shakib Al Hasan: Is Saqibul Hasan! Shovel Shot Specialist

Mohammad Mahmudullah: All-rounder: All round shit, basically.

Farhad Reza: Batsman, opens bowling too. How queer.

Dhiman Ghosh: looks like convict carlos the jackal.

(have a look at his profile on Cricinfo!

Mashrafe Mortaza: Vice Captain, fiery fella, still shit.

Abdur Razzak: left arm spinner, one of millions.
That was hard work, thankfully the few beers at lunch and the full bladder allowed me to pile through!

Good to see you and both talked about the pakistani cricketers and in true western style bagged the names of Butt and Jamshed.

How could you not, big man! They’re just begging to be ridiculed, and I, as I’m sure you are, are always here for that!

There are hover captions over the LINKS now? This is mindblowing!

Also, East Pakistan – ouch. I have a major soft spot for Bangladesh and I hurt when they hurt.

It turns out that this link hover text has been going on for ages! All throughout the front page… it seems a little silly to go back through the archives just for hover text though.

I have a new idea for a quiz. Hide each of the six words in hover text somewhere on the page.

They have always been there Mims, you’ve just not noticed.. I shall make an effort to make them better. I usually don’t bother too much with them.

Mims, that is a good idea, I might do that. Not sure how it would work, but I’ll think about it!
