I'm going to the one dayer on Friday. Yay! Just need to figure out how to skive off from work. Hmm. But I shall contain my anticipation and bask in the events of today.
New Zealand's defeat of England has been covered far more eloquently than I could ever be.
"England: useless like a dead monkey"
"spectacularly... pathetically... feeble"
However I feel it was cricinfo who summed it up best with this headline...
Ryder and McCullum trounce England.
Yep, that's right. A two-man squad could defeat England, and even without the backyard cricket rules.
Sri Lanka beat India and this made me ever so happy, especially after they suggested we are scared of them. Fools! It was a good day in Canberra today.
Also it looks like the Australian tour of Pakistan won't go ahead. I'm pleased with this. Cricket is not an island, nor do I believe it should be (unless it was just up from Antigua, I'd go there in the winter).
The actions of cricketers and cricket boards reverberate, and I think touring countries that are governed by suspicious regimes is seen to endorse said suspicious regimes, whether they mean to or not is irrespective. Plus it's just so unstable with opposition forces as well in Pakistan. If it's not safe it is just not worth the risk.
I'd die if something terrible happened to my Andrew. Or any of them.
Anyway. I've decided to quit my job and play bass guitar in a Wolfmother cover band. Have fun, ya'll.
