Ripley's Opposites and How!

Two incidents took place this last week in the world of cricket that couldn't be more far apart.

In the first instance, English Village Cricket saw something amazing in its Dishforth VS Goldsborough match in the Nidderdale Amateur League at North Yorkshire.

The Goldsborough village cricket team has earned the dubious distinction of having all its batsman getting out before scoring a single run. Goldsborough’s princely five runs came from four byes and one leg-bye. Goldsborough captain Peter Horseman somehow tried to hide his embarrassment saying they almost got a run but couldn’t take it because the batsman was hurt. “It was surreal and embarrassing. We almost got a run, but the batsman turned it down because he’d just been hit on the foot,” he said.

On the flip side, have a look at this.

Sri Lanka VS South Africa.

Sri Lanka 1st innings
WU Tharanga c Boucher b Steyn 7
ST Jayasuriya lbw b Steyn 4
KC Sangakkara c Boucher b Hall 287
DPMD Jayawardene b Nel 374
TM Dilshan lbw b Steyn 45
CK Kapugedera not out 1
Extras (b 17,lb 5,w 8,nb 8) 38

Total (5 wickets dec; 185.1 overs) 756

Fall of wickets: 1-6 (Jayasuriya, 1.3 ov), 2-14 (Tharanga, 3.3 ov), 3-638 (Sangakkara, 160.3 ov), 4-751 (Dilshan, 182.1 ov), 5-756 (DPMD Jayawardene, 185.1 ov)

How the heck does someone, in a Test Match go from 2-14 to 3-638 ???


The Bania Strikes Back!

Remember the Garden of Eden?

Nice story, that. Had 4 characters.

Adam. Eve. The Serpent. God.

As the story goes, God made Adam, realised Adam was lonely then made Eve and gave them paradise to live in forever without paying any rent just as long as they stayed away from the apple, who, demanding to be eaten, hired The Serpent as a marketing consultant to convince Adam and Eve to do so and leave Eden. Which is more or less what happened.

I don't know what happened to The Serpent but I think HE stayed BACK and enjoyed the Garden of Eden.

Which is what our present day story is like. In 2006.

Our garden of Eden has 4 Characters Too. Our Garden of Eden houses the Cricket Association of Bengal

God, starring the very dashing Buddadeb B.

Adam the courageous, played by our fine Police Commissioner Prasun Mukherjee.

Eve the shrew, embodied our nail chewing Maharaj


The Serpent, played to perfection by his Fiefdomness, Shri Jagmohan Dalmia.

God wanted it all. He wanted Eden BACK. He asked The Serpent not to contest in the elections. The Serpent, obvious to say wanted to no such thing and spurned God's offer. God, fielded his best for this battle of battles. The strong and courageous Adam fought hard and long. Before The Serpent realised, Eve, his one time protege, turned the tables and ran off to Adam and released ANOTHER email. Eve had a history of a slippery mail box and opportune press conferences. God thought he had this one in the bag.

On D-Day, Adam called out his forces. The Garden of Eden was turned into a veritable fortress. Not a mouse got through. Mobile phones were banned. People voted. Counting began. Outside, various news channels told us that Adam and Co were terribly confident. Smug even. The Serpent is done, they said.

Counting finished. News channels and Prannoy Roy held their breath.


Banter flowed.

God said 'Good has lost to Evil'. Amazing.

The Serpent said 'Sourav is a bachcha. We do not talk about bachchas'.

Leaky faucets and Commentators

Was watching highlights of the 2nd Ashes Test in 2006 on Star Sports. Discovered this complete howler.


Australia needs 54 to win, with it's last pair at the crease.Flintoff steams in, lets fly one that swings. Michael Kasprowics walks right across his stumps and is struck on his pad. Flintoff and all of England appeal. NOT OUT says Billy Bowden.

Hawkeye confirms Kasper should have been on his way.

Its Naz (Nasser Hussain) and Mikey (Michel Holding) in the Box.

Naz : So Mikey, what do you think?

Mikey : Even if Kasper fixed taps and pipes, he could'nt have been Plumber.

Had me in splits, that did.

Of sledging and Sir Geoffrey

Was having a chat about all of this with a pal the other night. Made him crack up and reminded me of the time I first read these little beauties. AM sure some of you might have read these, for those who haven't, you're in for a treat, is all I can say. The post is long, but worth every minute!


The Funnies
The batsman was out first ball. On the long walk back to the pavilion he had to pass the incoming batsman, a supercilious rival. 'Hard luck, old man,' smirked the newcomer. 'Yes. It's a shame I had to be right in the middle of a hat trick

The cricket enthusiast would travel any distance to watch a match-nothing could keep him from the game he loved. One day, a friend met him and said, 'You're looking a bit down.'
'The wife said she's going to divorce me.'
'What grounds?'
'Oh, Headingly, Edgbaston, Lord s . . .

Back in the pavilion, the batsman was talking to a team mate. 'I can't understand it,' he said 'The ball hit my head and the wicket-keeper caught it, but the umpire gave me out. His friend looked sympathetic. 'Sometimes they go by sound.'

The captain of a team says to the Umpire, "My players want to know if there is a penalty for thinking." The Umpire says, "No." The captain says, "Well we think you're an asshole, then."

In the 1970s, two dedicated Yorkshiremen were at the match. One discovered that he'd left his wallet at home and friend offered to go back for it. He returned pale and shaken. 'I've got bad news for thee, Bob. Your wife s run off and left thee, and your house 'as burned to the ground!' Said Bob...'I've got worse news for thee, lad. Boycott's out.'

A Yorkshireman had emigrated to America, but still used to receive news from home by mail. One day, he got the following telegram: 'Regret father died this morning STOP early hours. Funeral Wednesday STOP Yorkshire two hundred and one for six STOP Boycott not out ninety six.'

Sledging :-

McGrath to Ramnaresh Sarwan:
"So what does Brian Lara's d*ck taste like?"
Sarwan: "I don't know. Ask your wife."
McGrath (losing it): "If you ever fCUKing mention my wife again, I'll
fCUking rip your fCUking throat out."

Daryll Cullinan & Shane Warne:As Cullinan was on his way to the wicket, Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him. "Looks like you spent it all eating," Cullinan retorted.

New Zealand vs South Africa: Daryll Cullinan was batting, attempting a comeback from a complete bamboozling from Warne in earlier games. Cullinan played the first ball from Chris Harris very carefully back down the pitch, and keeper Parore yelled out "Well bowled Warnie!"

Merv Hughes & Viv Richards: During a test match in the West Indies, hughes didn't say a word to Viv, but continued to stare at him after deliveries. "This is my island, my culture. Don't you be staring at me. In my culture we just bowl." Merv didn't reply, but after he dismissed him he announced to the batsman: "In my culture we just say fCUk off.".

And of course you can't forget Ian Healy's legendary comment which was picked up by the Channel 9 microphones when Arjuna Ranatunga called for a runner on a particularly hot night during a one dayer in Sydney... "You don't get a runner for being an overweight, unfit, fat c**t!!!"

Mark Waugh standing at second slip, Adam Parore, new to the crease playing & missing the first ball. Mark - "Ohh, I remember you from a couple years ago in Australia. You were shit then, you're fcuking useless now". Parore(Turningaround) "Yeah, that's me & when I was there you were going out with that old, ugly slut & now I hear you've married her. You dumb fCUk".

Glenn McGrath & Eddo Brandes
McGrath was bowling to the Zimbabwe number 11 - who was unable to get his bat anywhere near the ball. McGrath, frustrated that Brandes was still at the crease, wandered up during one particular over and inquired: "Why are you so fat?" Quick as a flash, Brandes replied: "Because every time I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit." Even the Aussie slip fielders were in hysterics.

Merv Hughes & Robin Smith
Smith played and missed while facing Hughes in the 1989 Lord's Test between England and Australia. Hughes, never short of a word or two, told the Hampshire star: "You can't fCUking bat, mate." Smith then smashed the next ball to the boundary and replied: "Hey Merv, we make a fine pair. "I can't fCUking bat and you can't fCUking bowl."

Merv Hughes again!!
Merv Hughes & Javed Miandad in the 1991 Adelaide Test against Pakistan. Hughes was less than impressed when Javed called him a "fat bus conductor" as the pair squared up to one another. A few balls later, Hughes got his man and as Javed walked past, could not resist shouting "Tickets, please!"

This involves Steve Waugh and Parthiv Patel. Steve Waugh was playing in his last test and when he comes up to bat :- Parthiv-"so this is your last us some of that famous sledging of yours." Steve-"Respect Me...For when I made my test debut You were still in your nappies"

Jeff Thomson was bowling to Viv Richards in a county game. Viv missed a superb out swinger, and Thomas said "It's red, round and weighs about 5 1/2 ounces." Next ball Viv hits Jeff Thommo out of the ground for 6 and replies,"Thommo, you know what it looks like. Go ahead and find it!"

Fred Trueman bowling. The batsman edges and the ball goes to first slip, and right between Raman Subba Row's legs. Fred doesn't say a word. At the end of the over, Row ambles past Trueman and apologises sheepishly. "I should've kept my legs together, Fred". The reply is classic Trueman, "Not you, son. Your mother should've!"

A classic from the master of sledging, Ian Healy: Ben Hollioake had
just made his debut, hitting Glenn McGrath in the process. On his way back after finally being dismissed, Shane Warne cried: 'Hey, Ben' Hollioake turned round expecting a pat on the back. Instead Healy came in from behind and said: 'Get back to the nets, you fCUking idiot.'

Rvi Shastri v/s Mike Whitney , the Aussie 12th Man. Shastri hits it to Whitney and looks for a single. Whitney gets ready to throw the ball in and says "If you leave the crease i'll break your fUCking head off " Shastri: "if you could bowl as well as you can talk you wouldn't be the fUCking 12th man"

Australian wicket-keeper Rod Marsh, to English batsman Ian Botham: "So how's your wife and my kids?" The reply "The wife's fine, the kids are retarded"

Australian Merv Hughes to Englishman Robin Smith: "Does your husband play cricket as well?"

Malcolm Marshall was bowling to David Boon who had played and missed a couple of times. Marshall : “Now David, Are you going to get out now or am I going to have to bowl around the wicket and kill you?”

Shane Warne when bowling against Arjuna Ranatunga wondered aloud what would draw him out of his crease. Wicketkeeper Ian Healy piped up,"Put a Mars Bar on a good length. That should do it."

Mark Waugh to Jimmy Ormond coming out to bat in an Ashes match: “Mate, what are you doing out here, there’s no way you’re good enough to play for England.” Ormond: “Maybe not, but at least I'm the best player in my family.

"Bomber" Wells, a spin bowler and great character, played for Gloucestershire and Nottinghamshire. He used to bat at No.11 since one couldn't bat any lower. Of him, they used to paraphrase Compton's famous words describing an equally inept runner, "When he shouts 'YES' for a run, it is merely the basis for further negotiations!" Incidentally, Compton was no better. John Warr said, of Compton "He was the only person who would call you for a run and wish you luck at the same time." Anyway, when Wells played for Gloucs, he had an equally horrendous runner as the No.10. During a county match, horror of horrors.......both got injured. Both opted for runners when it was their turn to bat. Bomber played a ball on the off, called for a run, forgot he had a runner and ran himself. Ditto at the other end. In the melee, someone decided that a second run was on. Now we had *all four* running. Due to the confusion and constant shouts of "YES" "NO", eventually, all of them ran to the same end. At this point in time, the entire ground is rolling on the floor laughing their behinds out. One of the fielders - brave lad - stops laughing for a minute, picks the ball and throws down the wicket at the other end. Umpire Alec Skelding looks very seriously at the four and calmly informs them "One of you buggers is out. I don't know which. You decide and inform the bloody scorers!". (Incident described in "From the Pavilion End" by Harold "Dickie" Bird)

During the 1997 Ashes series, the English team decided not to sledge Steve Waugh as he revelled in a hostile atmosphere and sledging merely fuelled his adrenalin. Waugh arrived at the crease and soon realised this: 'OK, you're not talking to me are you? Well, I'll talk to myself then'. And he did, for 240 minutes in the first innings, and 382 minutes in the second.

The 2nd Ashes Test ends in a dramatic win for the English. The last pair of Aussie batsmen, Bret Lee and Michael Kasprowicz have added close to 60 runs for the last wicket before falling, 3 runs shy of the target. As the dejected Aussies walk back, Flintoff puts his arm around Lee and has a few words. Sporting words of encouragement? A 'Well Done Mate' ? When Flintoff was asked what he said, he replied, with a cheeky smile‘I told him it’s 1-1, you Aussie bastard.”

If anyone has more that they would like to add to this, please do so, by all means.

Cheers all,

Da Riggs

Welcome to China, parts of Taliban occupied Afghanistan and the Emergency.

My Dad used to tell me stories about Indira Gandhi and the Emergency in the late 70's. I could never relate to what he was on about. Apparently, newspapers and radio were severely edited, radio was edited. People ran scared because they had no information and propoganda ruled the roost.

Cut to 17th July 2006. 30 years later. The government, in it's infinite wisdom, has decided to block Blogspot. Rediff quotes 'Bloggers in India are getting together to protest against the sudden blocking of popular Google-owned blog-hosting site Blogger by some Internet Service Providers (ISPs) like Spectranet, Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL), Reliance Powersurfer, Airtel Broadband and Sify. J Grewal, Spectranet's Delhi representative at the National Internet exchange of India, told this reporter that, on July 15, the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) had sent ISPs a list of sites to be blocked. R H Sharma, senior engineer with MTNL, said the list ran into some 22 pages'

A list of 22 pages? Who the heck is the DoT to tell me what I can access and what I can't? According a body called the Computer Emergency Response Team, or CERT-IN, Web sites can be blocked if they contain pornography, speeches of hate, contempt, slander or defamation, or if they promote gambling, racism, violence or terrorism.

I'm wondering. Do Narendra Modi's speeches get posted online? Is that website still up and running? There are websites that have the Hindus cursing Muslims, Muslims cursing the Hindus and anyone else, Jews, Shi'ites, Serbs etc etc etc. Are they still accessible? Has anyone put a block on them? The other excuse is 'Terrorists use blogs to pass information'. That's cool. Block the blog. Terrorists make phone calls too. Landlines and Mobiles. So lets knock the phone networks down next.

I used to wonder about people in China and in the Middle East who would have sites that they were not allowed to access. I would think that it was so fundamentaly wrong to deny any person the right to information. I would thank my stars that I didn't live in China. Or Saudi. Or Afghanistan.

Turns out now, that I don't need to.

Welcome censorship. What's next, I wonder.

What a Cheeka Bugger !!!

It was evening to remember. A talkshow with Boman Irani and my childhood hero, Krish Srikkanth. Having attended previous such shows (Once with Boman Irani & Siddharth Basu and once with Cyrus Broacha and Navjyot Sidhu) I knew that this evening would be just as good.

It was. That and then some. Boman Irani was fantastic. Had us all in splits. We shan’t talk about him too much because this isn’t a Theatre Artist Blog. This is a cricket blog. Which is why we will spend the rest of this blog talking about Krish.

The one thing that Srikkanth does, is radiate energy. A volatile, nervous, Okay-It’s-Going-To-Explode-Any-Minute kind of energy which is extremely funny to watch. I was seated on a table right next to his table (Riggs is Posh, Riggs gets good seats) and the first thing that strikes you is that he is as fidgety at a table as he used to be at the wicket. I don’t know what he was saying to the others on his table but they were going completely mental.

Anyhoo, as they say, the show was a complete blast. Cheeka was in his element, talking about his cricket, his wife, other cricketers and other funny anecdotes.

Whilst all this was happening, I was using a Teacher’s HighnightS comment card to jot down the funniest bits, all for your enjoyment. I felt very reporter-like. (Clark Kent, not Piloo)

And, Cheeka said :-

‘When we went to the ’83 World Cup we didn’t think we would do anything. We never won anything in the ’75 World Cup. Even Sri Lanka beat us and they weren’t even a test playing nation. Then ’79 happened and we beat a county called East Africa. No one gave us a chance in 1983. Not even ourselves. In fact Sunny had booked us a tour of the US after the World Cup. To play cricket there in some cities. Sunny, Sandy (Patil), Ravi (Shastri), Yash (Yashpal) and myself were booked. We thought we’ll go to London, have a nice chutti, then watch semis and finals (as spectators) at Lord’snd then go to US. You won’t believe me… I promise … but our tickets were booked ‘Bombay – London – New York’ ….

‘In the 83 World Cup, aiyyo, West Indies , what a line up! Greenidge, Haynes, Larry Gomes, Viv Richards, Clive Lloyd, Faoud Bachus…’ *pause* and a heckler from the crowd yelled ‘and the bowlers’ .. to which Cheeka, laughed and said ‘Macha I don’t even want to remember them. They are best forgotten. MarshallHoldingRobertsandGarner’ *all in one breath*

‘Kapil? He is the greatest Indian cricketer. A complete Punjab-ka-paththar’

‘Against Zimbabwe, My God. My wife was at the ground. She came to see me play. I struggled for six overs and scored 0. Then everyone went and as you all know we were 17-5. In those days we had strict rules. Wives were not allowed to sit in the players enclosure. So I was sitting outside the enclosure. That ground Tungbridge Wells is a small ground, no proper pavilion. So I was sitting outside next to the players enclosure with my wife. Soon Kapil started hitting and the score reached 75-5. The Mann (P R Mansingh, the Indian Manager) told everyone that no one should move from where they are sitting. Us cricketers are a superstitious lot. My wife and I were freezing and Mann woudn’t let us move. I wanted to take a leak because it was so cold but Mann never let me move. He said he didn’t care and I could piss in my pants but I was not to move. People always ask me about that innings and I always want to tell them I watched it sitting outside the players enclosure in the freezing cold and badly wanting to take a leak.’

‘Arre yaar I was never a tuk-tuk player’

‘In 1986 England had dropped Botham. I was batting and was on strike and suddenly there was a streaker on the ground. Naked woman, right next to me holding a banner that said BRING BACK BOTHAM. I didn’t know what to do. Whether to look at her or not to look or take strike. And at the other end Sunny was laughing like a madman. Anyway. That naked woman was taken away by the police and all. Then I got out 4 runs later.’

‘I used to hit the ball man. Tapal. Six. I was a tapal player’

(While narrating how he dropped Lance Cairns, then didn’t attempt a catch of the next ball, was moved to square leg and the catch came to him again, which he took) ‘That Lance Cairns, you know, Chris Cairns ka ppithajee, he had arms like three of mine’

‘Yes the Indian Team boycotted me during 2003 World Cup. It was all because of a media misunderstanding. One of the channels called me and asked me where I think Sourav Ganguly should bat and I as a joke said at Number 14. Haha. But see now, it’s true. Woh Sourav number 14 mei hi batting kar raha hai’

‘Even I took 5 wickets in a one day match twice. And I am a poi bowler. You know Poi bowler? Jiska balls bas poita hai’ (Po = Go in tamil. By which he meant his deliveries would ‘go’ straight on without spinning.

It was the most brilliant evening. Cheeka also took time out to pose with an adoring fan. Me.

Post Mortems :- Dr. N S Sidhu

Having stayed awake till 430 am to watch India win, I knew the only thing sweeter was to watch Sidhu on one of those news channels, talking about the win. I waited. I was not disappointed.

Here we go, Sidhuisms, fresh of the airwaves :-

On the difference between both Captains :- Dravid is cool as a cucumber, mind as cool as ice. Lara is a rothudu, remember how people used to cry when yu played pithu-garam as youngsters . He is Captain Crybaby. Crying about bad selection and bad pitches. He is making West Indian cricket seem like a jhanda without a danda.

On perceptions of this Indian team before the series :- Arre yaar this is a ‘phus pataka’

On Indian batsmen who perform abroad :- Even a cock crows over his own dungeon. You can only assess greatness on alien lands.

On if’s and buts :- If the partridge had the woodcock’s thighs, it wud be the best bird to ever fly.

On various cricketers who played a part in this match :-

Denesh Ramdin – He did not cave in like a pack of cards

Anil Kumble is quick thru the air, the Jumbo has taken off.

Dravid – Time to change his name from The Wall to The Rock.

And finally .... pure Sidhu :- The greatest room in this world is the room for improvement.

More later !

34 Years.

Yes. Well, my present age and my erstwhile waist-size.

It is also the number of years between a series victory in the West Indies for us desis. The last time this happened Sunil Gavaskar had all his hair and was just The Little, Ajit Wadekar was the Indian captain and limited overs cricket was just a distant gleam in the milkman's eye, having not yet been conceived.

It's been a long time coming.

The first two tests went down to the wire, the third was close and this time around Rahul Dravid & his band of Merry Men were not to be denied. At the end of day 1, having seen India dismissed for 200 runs, one could have been forgiven for thinking we had lost the plot. By the end of Day 2 we were all feeling a whole lot better. At the end of Day 3, one cannot help but stand up and applaud Anil Kumble. If it was Dravid on Day 1 and 2 with his batting, it was Sreesanth and Kumble on Day 3. Brilliant, brilliant bowling!

Kingston Town is going be rocking and rolling to the Balle Balle Himesh Reshamiya beat tonight.

To my buddy & partner in crime Bart, I hate to say I told you so, BUT I TOLD YOU SO. So much for your Dravid-bashing, he walked off with the man of the match and the man of the series. I also told you RD would do a Wadekar. This also means I have started planning on where to have that steak.

Just one blot on this otherwise beautiful horizon. Will someone PLEASE tell Kiran More it's uncool to hang around a prize distribution ceremony in shorts and a red shirt and it's nasty to have mehendi-hair at his age. Would the BCCI kindly step in and send it's Chairman of Selectors to a stylist?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. Here's my pic(k) of the day!

More on this delightful subject later!


PS. A Sidhu gem on Rahul Dravid's two innings. Rahul's patience is like a tube of toothpaste. No matter how much is squeezed it's never really over. A true dhishum-dhishum moment.

A tale of 6 Countries!

England, Portugal, Brazil, France, India and the West Indies.

What a Saturday night. John Travolta and the BeeGees were nothing compared to this Saturday Night Fever. The evening started off well, by which I mean we got SEATS at my favourite watering hole, The Under Deck. If you ever visit Hyderabad, the Under Deck exists at the Taj Banjara and is pretty much the best place to kickback and soak in the spirit(s).

We started the evenin in fine style, the Poms and the Ports playin much back and forth footy. Other than the penalty shoot-out, the most entertaining moment of the match for me was Rooney's stomp-on-his-fruit-and-veg tackle. Even I winced. Post his trampling of the opposition (pun intended), his push and shove ways bought much joy to those of us gathered around the bar. Penalties, in my humble opinion, are the worst way to lose a match and I fear Britanica shall mourn tomorrow.

Whilst all this was going on, I spent some money Hutch's way, getting updates on the cricket score frequently on my mobile. Windian wickets tumbled at regular intervals and a Pub-Post Blog was hurriedly updated. Took pics of the same coz it's possibly the most outrageous thing I've done with my phone. (Okay, ONE of the most outrageous things I've done with my phone)

Sticky-Wicket gets updated @ Home Away from Home

Post all this revelry, the Samba-wallahs took the field with the Frogs. What a game !Great fun all the way, though I personally think that the World Cup will be a little less exciting now that Brazil got the boot.

While I was at the Home Way from Home, my pals were talking about MrFunnyMan's blog (come on Qwerts, take a bow). Those few who didn't know what we were on about and who demanded to know were given the works. We got online from my phone (again, one of those crazy phone things) and gave THEM a tummyache with all the laughs. I don't think they cared too much about the football after that.

Qwertyworld Vs WorldCupFooty

Got home in time to watch Dravid and Dhoni make the second highest partnership of the match, MSD getting done in by a delivery that was as high as my IQ. Six sessions of play have seen 26 wickets fall and it was remarkable to see Dravid stand tall. I know Bartman is somewhere on this blog, eating crow and making plans of coming back and telling us it was all planned by Dravid's PR -wallahs and etc, but RD is the MAN, let there be no doubt about that. 81 in the first knock, batting on 60 overnight in the second, his effort is nothing short of spectacular. He's scored over a thousand runs in 2006 and as far as I know, we still have half a year left. May his tribe and his strike rate increase.

Test 4 is tantalisingly poised. Another 50-75 runs in the kitty and I think the Windians will be hard pressed to win, providing the wicket stays the way its been playing on these two days. If it eases up, Lara will anchor one end up and grind his way to a winning score.

What's it gonnna be? Will Captain Courageous be able to hold it together and along with the Turbanator and Kumble Circle take us to a historic win OR will Lord Brian keep his destiny with #7 at Sabina?

I can't wait !!

Pub update!

It's 1140 pm, the Portugese have just sunk the British Empire .I'm at my favourite watering hole, the Underdeck.

They just turned the cricket on. The Windians are 91-7.

Two words.
