What the fuck happened there?!
Destiny, my friends, that’s what.
After mastering total football in the 70’s under Johan Cruyff, de Nederlanders have now decided to do the same in 20/20 cricket.
Watch out boys and girls, they were unstoppable (except by Ze Germans) at football during that time, and are bound to do the same to all and sundry in this 20/20 World Cup (luckily Ze Germans are not here). Never before has there been such a sublime display of a cricket, from a side wearing oranje.
Dirty Dirk bowled well, without any real penetration.
It was left to a couple of old blacksmiths to cause the damage. Darron Reekers who started off in big bludgeoning style, followed up by Tom De Grooth, who smashed The England all over Lords. Jrod loved it so much he almost threw up!
My man Ryan Ten Doeschate even got in on the act, a cracking allround display, with a red inker and taking the wickets of Ravi Bopara & Luke Wright.
The England have two young stars at the top of their order, and the rest are a bunch of cunts. Even Rob Key, the fat knacker.
The bowling, beyond the opening pair was shithouse. Rashid looked good against the West Indies, but was goes for too many runs. He reminds me of Stuart MacGill, long hops, full tosses and the odd unplayable delivery. No fucking good at 20/20, I’m afraid (and surely the fact that he doesn’t get in Yorkshire’s side, should have given them some idea, no?).
Stuart Broad couldn’t hit six stumps, the useless Ricky Schroder lookalike fucktrog.
I’m happy to lose to the Dutch though, because it might make this bunch of fuckfaced De Engelsen players actually learn to play proper 20/20 cricket. Hardly any of them actually play it, they’re learning the game in T20i’s.
Here’s to getting spanked by Pakistan on Sunday, and being out of the competition within 3 days! Good times, my friends!
Filed under: Cricket | Tags: 20/20, 20/20 cup, 20/20 World cup 2009, Alastair Cook, England, Essex, Essex CCC, Essex Eagles, IPL, IPL Champions League, Kent, Kent Spitfires, The England
What the fuck is going on here?!
Alastair Cook took his recent smackdown show to Kent again. Last week he scored 80 from 56 balls against the spitfires, this week 77 off 55. So far in the 20/20 cup he’s scored 197 runs at an average of 49.25 and a strike rate of 139. Wow. Thems good figures eh…
I like this a lot. I always want to see an Essex boy do well, but he’s consistently annoyed the shit out of me, by being the most tedious fucktard the world has ever seen.
He rarely hits the ball in the air, scores his runs in test cricket at a snails pace, and is generally a grinder.
I think a season playing List A cricket, and 20/20 will improve the boy no end. He’s made it clear that he wants to be considered for The England in all types of cricket, which is an admirable statement, and one that he appears to be backing up.
I’m looking forward to the day, that I look at a The England pyjamas match, and don’t want to cut my face in to slithers because eyeliner is opening the batting. Let’s hope it’s not too far round the corner.

Opening day of the 20/20 championship, and The Essex were down at Canterbury to face the lowly Kent.
Alastair Cook opens the innings.
Then it all gets weird.
He scored lots, and quickly. What the fuck is going on? I fear the end is nigh children. Bunker up, and await the Apocalypse.
80 from 56 balls. QUE?!
Strangely enough, I know he can do that more regularly. I watched him smash a double century at a run a ball, against Australia (Lee, Gillespie, Tait, MacGill, Kasprowicz) in 2005.
Why does he not do it more? Because he’s an eyeliner wearing little shitbag.. I’m hoping this is changing, and his bollocks have actually dropped.

Please stop the wankfest over Hughes’ county stint please.
Most of the runs he scored were in the County Championship 2nd division. This is a division where the leading wicket takers are Jon Lewis & James Tredwell.
Those old fuckers weren’t even good enough to hold down a spot in The England’s ODI side, and they’re proper fucking pony.
So can we stop with the cock sucking please. He smashed around a load of has-beens and never will be’s.
I’m not saying that the fella hasn’t got talent. He has. He’s averaging 69 in both test and FC cricket. Not bad, I think you’ll agree..
What I will say, is that Jimmy Adams averaged 87 after 12 tests, and Mike Hussey averaged 80 at the start of 2008 and is now averaging 55 (to be fair that’s still higher than any current The England batsman).
If, after the ashes he’s still averaging high 60’s, then fairly do’s, lick the boy’s testicles all you like. Allow him to roger you roughly with bananas from his daddy’s farm, but let’s not get stupid, eh…
Now fuck off.
Being a Suave fellow, I’m horrified, I say horrified at what I’ve just seen on Sky Sports News.
I know Phil Hughes is young, but there’s never an excuse to be wearing an ill fitting suit, with a shirt that has seventies style collars opened wide, to expose the chest hair. That and the two diamond earrings, have sent my Suave sensibilities absolutely bandy..
Fucking hell, can’t someone teach the little bogan banana farmer to dress properly!

Play is abandoned for the day after heavy rain this morning..
That my friends is fucking wank.
Yorkshire CCCCCCC have spent £600,000 on a drainage system, that after 3hrs of sunshine didn’t work well enough to allow any play today.
I’ll tell you why this is shit.
Lords, 2007, The England v India.
I went to this match, I can’t recall which day mind, but I remember everything else vividly.
I alighted the tube at Regents Park and started walking across the park in the direction of the home of cricket.
Halfway across the park, it started raining. Luckily I had waterproofs and an umbrella with me. I quickly ducked under a tree for cover, and put my waterproofs on (these are mountainy-goretexy, top of the rangy shizzle), and carried on. By the time I’d got to the other side of Regents Park, my golfing umbrella had snapped through the sheer volume of rain that fell. No wind, just pure volume of water broke the spokes, and the umbrella was fucked.
I pulled my hat out of my bag, pulled the hood of my waterproofs off, and continued towards Lords.
It’s no more than a 1mile walk from Regents Park to Lords, and in that time, the rain was so torrential, that there were three foot deep puddles on St John’s Wood Road. Cars were struggling to get through, because of the depth of the puddles. The drainage system was overflowing, to such an extent that people were starting to fear for their houses.
It was fucking terrible, monsoon like. As I got to the gates, I was completely and utterly soaked. Not 1cm of my body was not completely drenched. And I was properly attired.
I went to the pub to wait for the rain to stop, as there was no chance of getting a taxi, and the pub was dry. It rained for just over an hour, and everyone in the pub agreed, that there would be no chance of play…
I ventured into the rain, and managed to get a cab driver to take me home, so I could change.
That whole process took no more than an hour and a half. By this time the sun was out, but I didn’t hold much hope for any play, so switched on the box to get the latest updates.
What happened next left me completely fucking flabbergasted. Just after lunch, play had started, and I’d only been gone an 1.5hrs….
The drainage was so good, that with just over 2hrs of sunshine, play was able to commence.
Fuck you Yorkshire CCC, and the horse you rode in on. That’s how drainage should work, not your £600,000 fuck up.
The moral of the story? Never trust northerners, the workshy bastards!!

If there’s one thing you constantly hear about Michael Vaughan, it’s that he’s hitting it well in the nets.
Now look at that photo above, and by jove, the fucker is!
There’s no green edges, it’s all middle.
If anyone knows what the green shit is from, or where the balls come from, I’d be intrigued. I see lots of green marks on international cricketers bats, but have never seen a green ball. When we use a bowling machine, they’re either yellow or red, and they don’t leave marks.
I’m guessing that Michael looks great for a pristine 20, then gets done by a straight one, but you never know.
If only he could do it in the middle more. That would be nice.
Well fuck my old boots. What do you know. He really is hitting it well in the middle. This time around though, he’s good at one day cricket, and shit over the longer term.
He’s averaging over 50 in pyjama’s this year. His career average is 29.
The world really is going wonky.
Ha! I’ve jinxed him. 46 is his season average now. Out LBW for 74. Still good mind, but he’s not hit a century in OD games for ages. He’s only scored 3 centuries in 360 odd List A and ODI matches. Michael Vaughan will be very disappointed not to cash in on a flat deck at the oval. In fact Michael Vaughan might get so angry he only communicates with himself in the third person.

If there’s one fella The England didn’t want to have to face this year, for The Ashes, it was Andrew Symonds.
We hate him, because he’s good. He loves to smash a Pom.
In the last ashes series, Symonds came good in test match cricket. The England had fuck all on the board, in the 4th test, and Australia started their 1st innings, trying to get an imposing lead. Suddenly Freddie fired up, and The England had Australia at 83/5. In came Symonds, and along with OrphanEatingBearLikeFuckhead, destroyed The England. They put on 279 at over 4rpo, and destroyed any hopes of gettting a consolation win.
So we salute you ‘Strayan administracats, for sending the ginger in his place.
