Cricket Trumps: Andrew Strauss vs Ricky Ponting

Ricky:

Height: not that tall.
Weight: quite spindly.
Age: pretty old.
Skill: being a captain. Pretty handy batsman. Also quite useful slip catcher.
Best known for: Being moody. Having a scar on his face inflicted by Harmison. Complaining. Losing the Ashes. Twice. Winning the Ashes a couple of times. NWG forgets how many.

Andrew:

Height: not that tall.
Weight: solid.
Age: thirtyish.
Skill: great batsman. Excellent captain. Slip fielder.
Best known for: sportsmanship. Smiling. Being happy. Winning the Ashes. Not being Knighted. Not being captain for a ridiculous amount of time given how great he is.

NWG gives this round to Andrew.

Woo.

I think Andrew would take a lot of positives out of the matchup. Such a challenge is very exciting and all the boys are really looking forward to proving themselves in the next match.

I'm not happy with you calling Punter "pretty old" - his birthday is 3 days after mine!!

Sorry Sid. NWG didn't really mean it, he's not that old, just older than Andrew Strauss.
