Relax. The Cricket This Summer Is Going To Be Fine

The MCC team, tipped to be out to impress selectors, filled with England's top (?) batsmen made a very respectable start to their summer.

Key - 5 runs.
Vaughan - 12 runs.
Bell - 12 runs.

NWG can see the Aussie's quaking in their bowling shoes this very second.

Don't know what the hoo-haa about Vaughan is; a guy so up himself that he constantly refers to himself in the third person. Good captain yes but that's Strauss' job now. He should do the decent thing and say "I am....(sorry)... Michael Vaughan is retiring from International cricket".

Shah should be given a extended run with Bell as back-up.

I've received confidential news that Ricky Ponting was heard chatting with the selectors immediately after MPV's innings, desperately trying to get out of the Ashes tour.

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Wouldn't that be a treat.

12th Man said...

England would not want to take a step backward by picking Vaughan again. The Ashes is too close and this is not the time to be making drastic changes to the composition of the side, especially to the crucial #3 slot.

N.B.: I understand your are an English fan and you wanted this blog to resemble the English ODI jersey. But the colours cause a strain on the eye NWG.Why not try the English test outfit :)

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Is that better for you 12th man?

12th Man said...

Much better and more readable. Thanks NWG.

Stani Army said...

I can't see the white ball!!!...it's getting lost in the background.

I agree with 12th Man about the previous colour....how about a World Cup '92 theme though?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG won't take fashion advice from men. Ever. Sorry.

Stani Army said...

Not even nice men?

Hold on a minute! I'm not a man....I just checked.

Where did I say I was a man anyway?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG just realised that you haven't given away your gender, so she does apologise if you are not a man.

Stani Army said...

Apology accepted. I just come back from a long innings and these boxes really do chafe.

O....can you tell NWG to stop referring to herself in the 3rd person....or is she Michael Vaughan in disguise?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Breaking news: NWG is not Michael Vaughan.

Stani Army said...

Prove it!

Do you have two functioning knees?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Actually no. One is definitely defunct.

Stani Army said...

I knew it! The third person thing, the dodgy knee and the NightWatch-person name (Vaughan has an average like one).

It's all beginning to add up. I'm closing in on you NWG, or should I say Vaughany?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

NWG can assure you she is not Michael Vaughan, or any other cricketer. She's just a girl....

Stani Army said...

You could have at least pretended to be...for me. All that detective work for nothing.

Ah well, I'll have to go nag Michael Vaughan now, ask him if he's just a girl. I can probably hazard a guess at what his answer's going to be:

"Michael Vaughan is just Michael Vaughan"

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Surely this says something about your detective work....

Stani Army said...

Oooo, that was below the belt. I may have to retire hurt from that one.

Before I make may way to the pub-villion, what happened to your knee?

The Nightwatchgirl said...

It was born bad

Stani Army said...

Ahh! your knee and I have something in common.

When did you give birth to it and how did you manage prior to its birth?
