Suave's Republique Cricket

Steve Kirby. First class nutter.

I'm a gonna git ya suckah!

Steve Kirby is a first class nutjob. He would cause a fight in an empty room, and he’s on a similar level to Andre Nel. I like the fella, he’s got spunk, he’s got gusto, and he would run in all day for you as a skipper..

He’s played a fair bit of cricket this winter, going to India with The England Lions, where he average 24.10 and took 10 wickets. He then had a run out for the MCC against Sussex, and bowled superbly (in bowler friendly conditions), which should leave him in good stead (although Luke Wright knocking him out, might hurt a bit).

I mention the fiery ginger quick, because of something he said recently.

“It is such a lovely tonic to see Ryan Sidebottom doing so well. He has proved over three or four seasons in county cricket that if you do take wickets, you are noticed,” said Gloucestershire seamer Kirby. “From a personal point of view, he has shown the way which has given players like myself and others in domestic cricket a lot of encouragement.”

I like his attitude, and I like that he looks like he’d eat your mother for tea, if you don’t get the fuck out sharpish. Which is what fast bowling really should be about!

Fast, mean and ugly – a proper bowler, then. He takes wickets, too and once got banned for hitting a tail-ender with a beamer. I think fast bowlers should send down the odd beamer, just to keep batsmen on their toes. They’ve got helmets and three pounds of willow in their hands – what they so scared of? Jessies.

“I’ve seen better batsmen in my fridge” – Kirby to Atherton after dismissing him in one of the latter’s final matches.

Best cricket quote everrrrr.
