There's A Reason Why
Neil Hannon, of the Divine Comedy, has teamed up with Thomas Walsh for a cricket album, entitled, funnily enough, The Duckworth Lewis Method.
There's a reason why there hasn't been many cricket songs in the past.
That's because it's a bad idea.
The best cricket song NWG has heard is the ABC Australian theme song for the cricket on the radio. That is genius (There's cricket on the radio and everything's ok).
NWG would welcome any other suggestions of other cricket songs that are not a) awful, b) embarrassing, c) ridiculous, d) meant as a serious song, but comes off as mad.
There is also a reason why no cricketer:
Has bought out a clothing range.
Has their own private plane.
Has their own cooking range (though Matthew Hayden may achieve this soon enough).
Has bought out an exercise video.
