NWG Super Stars: Confirmed Team

NWG has just finished talking to all the relevant PR people and agents, discussed contracts, fee appearances, charity donations and outfit colours and she can now reveal who made it in to her NWG SuperStars.

Matthew Hoggard (with Ernie in a baby sling)
Adam Gilchrist (book promotion - thanks P)
Shane Warne (ditto)
Jimmy Anderson (thrilled to be given a game)
Sachin Tendulkar (couldn't wait to get the pads back on)
Glenn McGrath (initial thought was too tall, but that's discrimination, so...)
Brendan McCullum (finally a chance for him to play with the big boys)
Ashley Giles (NWG wanted royalty and she got royalty)
Chris Gayle (without the funny business)
Andrew Flintoff (jumped at the chance not to play for England)
Gary Pratt (who else?)

The game is set to start a week today. The first training session has taken place and NWG really made sure they are all fit enough to cope. The only one slightly puffed was Shane Warne, but then what do you expect?

Unfortunately this will be a closed event; no press allowed. But NWG will be keeping score, umpiring (what's LBW again?) and the team's physio (oh yes).

And before you ask, Nightwatchgirl has sat on all their laps and found them to be most comfortable.

Which lap did you most enjoy?

And as a follow up question.

Why ?

Obviously Matthew Hoggard. And to answer your question as to why: simply because he is big bundle of lovliness and gave NWG some handy hints about swing bowling.

Should swing bowling be said with air quotes ?
