Owais Shah Relief

After yesterday’s bitter words, Owais Shah showed us that he can bat after all and won England a game. As you can see from the above photograph image of above mentioned individual, this performance was rewarded with a "man of the match" copy of the bible. This is so he can never be alone in England hotel room in the future. He'll always have a lovely stor- book to read. I think that's the pop-up version, too.

I missed the actual game, so I can’t pass much in the way of comment.

I can, however, note that there were only seven leg byes conceded in the entire match and only one run out. Interesting, that.

In another match that I missed, India beat South Africa. Why? Mainly because they’re better, but also because they wore a marginally more attractive kit. The best looking side in the field always wins.

It’s raining where I live. Matthew Hoggard is still not captain, so it’s raining in my soul too.

Liked your previous post, the theory on how WI cricket is naturally suited to 20-20 is quite intersting,and deserves further thought.

And challenging the 'dominant paradigms in current cricket thinking' is exactly what we do...we are bunch of cricket followers who have put together this website called, where we philosophize on the game. Would be really great if you could join us and write whenever you have the time to....if you are interested, email me at
