One and all, go here and donate all of your pennies immediately.  On pain of a Suave smash to those that don’t.

Basically, The Village Cricketer has challenged Jrod to a bloggers Ashes.  Aussie bloggers Vs The English.  It’ll be played at Monday 29th June 2009, 3pm start, Barnes Cricket Club, Lonsdale Road, London SW13 9QL

I’m trying to get myself into this side (who wouldn’t want me to be honest?!  A middle order slogger, lazy fielder, rubbish tweaker, I’m like a The English David Hussey!), so I’ve donated, and I’m know trying to raise awareness too.

It’s all in aid of The Everyman cancer charity, which will help to protect your balls in later life.

Get donating children.

Happy ‘Straya Day!

You're shit and you know you are etc...

You're shit and you know you are etc...

This hasn’t been the best start to a summer for ‘Straya, has it boys and girls?

Beaten in India, beaten in the test series by South Africa, and now beaten in a home ODI series by the Saffers again (they haven’t won the major home ODI series for three years now!) .

This my friends is fucking fantastic.  The rest of the world are pointing at you, and laughing like Nelson.

This is how us mere mortals feel most of the time.

So where did it all go wrong?

To be honest every where.  The commentators on Channel 9, were discussing the Allan Border Medal, which is coming up soon, and were trying to think who could win the medal.

Michael Clarke and Mitchell Johnson were the only two names they could come up.  How often does that happen, when the most biased commentary team in world cricket, struggles to think of more than two players to win the awards.

They’ve got no spinner.  They’ve only got one quality quick, with a couple of emerging ones.  The top order has been terrible in both forms of the game.

If I was a selector, I’d have Ricky Ponting back to the ranks and pick someone who can actually captain a side, without having to have a management conference every three balls.

Not sure where I’m going with this, but it’s Monday morning and I’ve been up since 4.30am.


Albie Morkel in “I’m not too smart, me” shocker!

Albie Morkel, whilst picking up the MOM award against South Africa, had this to say about booze addled bad boy Herschelle Gibbs..

“I’ll be buying him a drink tonight.”

That’s the ticket.  Just what  a guy who’s been sent on an alcohol rehabilitation course needs to hear.

So if you catch Hersch on the pop tonight, you know who to blame.

Now that is a proper tour!

Thanks to a recent agreement between the ICC, South Africa and The England, tours between the two countries will now be played over five tests.

The schedule for The England’s winter tour to South Africa, is now 2 T20i’s, 4 ODI’s and five tests.   That my friends is a proper cricket tour.  If you’re listening STUPID INDIAN ADMINISTRACATS, no-one wants to play two tests and eleventy ODI’s.

Hugh Morris, England Cricket Managing Director, said: “We are grateful to colleagues and friends in South Africa who have worked with us to provide what we believe is an exciting and well balanced tour. It makes good sense to start with the ODIs given the schedule of cricket that we have in September, October and November 2009.

“The four Test matches are scheduled for iconic grounds of South Africa and I am sure that thousands of England supporters will be looking forward to spending their Christmas and New Year holidays following the team.”

We will have a lovely boxing day test too!  Top bombing.  Suave is now going to do all he can to be at that test.

If any South Africans out there would like to put up the Suavest Cricket Blogger in the world, then leave a comment.


Seems myself and an Indian cricket website can’t fucking read.

It’s four tests, five ODI’s, as Patrick Kidd rightly points out here..

Well that’s pissed on my parade, hasn’t it..

Cunts, the lot of em.

Best ODI All-rounder? Really?!
Fuck off, he's not that good.

Fuck off, he's not that good.

Shakib Al Hasan is now top of the ICC’s ODI All-rounders list, ahead of Jacques Kallis, Andrew Flintoff and Jacob Oram.

Now, don’t get me wrong, the boy’s got talent, but top?  fuck right off.

If you had to pick a guy to rescue an innings against top quality opposition, who would you pick?

If you had to choose a bowler to go for next to no runs on all wickets?

Someone to scare the bejeesus out of middle order batsman?

It ain’t fucking Shakib, I can tell you that much.

Come on now, we all know the ICC rankings are shit, but this takes the piss.

Albie there for you, when the rain starts to fall.

Ring a ding ding…

Albie Morkel, is a batting behemoth. He reminds me of Lance Klusener in his pomp. Bowls fast medium, and can absolutely belt the covers off the ball.

His 40 off 22 today, was the difference between the sides. South Africa cleverly waited until he got his eye in, then took the batting powerplay, and he went batshit. Admittedly he was helped by poor fielding from Australia (they are looking average in the field at the moment, dropping two catches in the first over of South Africa’s reply). This boy can really strike a ball, and the fact that he has a supervillain as a brother, probably helps. I imagine it would give you that extra confidence one requires, to beat all and sundry.

South Africa now take a 2-1 lead in the series, and it’s turning out to be a cracker.

In other news, The England arrived safely in the West Indies, after pissing off a plane load of tourists, by diverting the flight. They did hand out The England cufflinks to those that were upset by the delay, which is nice.

I’m expecting the england to draw the series. We will not be able to bowl out Grand Lord Megachief of Gold, so it’ll be another year of averaging over 100 for Shiv.

For the sehwagology members amongst us (that should be all of you, by the way, if I find out any of you are non-believers, it’lll be the Suavish Inquisition), our Lord hath spoken..

More to come shortly..

It’s OK to do drugs, as long as you’re not playing in a competiton, lots of love Pakistan Cricket Board.. KTHXBAI.

Look at me, I’m spangled man! Lies lies from tiny eyes.

Drug addled fucknut, Mo Asif, busily scouring the streets for his next hit.

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) will have no jurisdiction over Mohammad Asif’s detention case in Dubai, when the fast bowler was detained at Dubai Aiport after being caught in possession of opium, in June last year.

The PCB has received a letter from WADA about the case, and though opium is on the list of banned substances – because it contains morphine – the board feels an internal inquiry is the way ahead.

“It [opium] is a drug because it contains morphine,” said Salim Altaf, the chief operating officer of the PCB. “From that perspective it is a banned substance. However, if this drug in the possession of an individual and it’s out of competition, we have to look at that perspective as well. All angles will have to be looked at. I don’t think WADA has any jurisdiction in it.”
