South Africa vs South Africa

There comes a point in any cricketer's life, when they will play against the country they were born in.

Wait, NWG needs to re-write that.

There comes a point for a cricketer playing for England, when they will play against the country they were born in.

And today was that day.

KP and Trott. South Africa vs South Africa.

OK, so it didn't last that long. And no, Trott didn't score a double hundred. And no, KP has not been booed especially loudly.

Still, it was quite funny.

Even funnier is that Trott is friends with the South African team. Can it get better? Yes, frankly, it can. Because Trott was seen celebrating with the South Africans when they beat Australia. And Trott goes to lunch with Steyn. And Trott's friends with Harris. And the South Africans got in to trouble because of it. Befriending the enemy.

And it's all rather amusing.

South Africa vs South Africa and England will still manage to lose. How rubbish are they Nightmare?

What was most amusing was that Harris did not forget his spell with the Bears and dismissed both of his former team mates. His team mates however forgot that he does not spin the ball.

We must go away and do some lines; must do better.

Come on Stani - be nice. NWG knows you have it in you.

Flipping damn it

What about Matt Prior and Andrew Strauss - SA born!

The Nightwatchgirl said...

Jack that is true, NWG just happened to be watching when Trott and KP were batting.

Well I've said it Stani - any time you want to deck the blond stropter - feel free!

[Any twinge of guilt about this is mitigated as most of the possible immediate replacements and proper bowlers are English born I believe]

And as you have pointed out in your first comment - we have the unmitigated joys of our own repressed saffer Staussy as captain, what a mind eh? Did we expect anything else - 4 bowlers indeed.... Go on Stani you know you can do it!

Stani to Morkel, OUT! b Stani c Sixsixeight


...senior Broad goes and bans Benn but gives Haddin a fine??? Haddin, the one that instigated it! Skin colour no? Senior should teach junior Broad some manners and respect for umpires first. Broad...he's just a broad.

Stani, I think Barbie Snr should just get over it, but you are right about Hads. He should have kept his great mug out of things and all would have passed with very little incident.

Did you see Watto's celebration of getting Gayle out? What did you think?

Sorry NWG - digressing into important, sorry non English cricket there :-) I see Collers is batting now. I do adore him, ginger hair and all.

See, I can talk England cricket even when they aren't stealing our urn ...

Stylish ending ... lucky draw. That happened somewhere else this year; can't remember where because I think I've blocked it ... some place beginning with "C" ...??

Still, Colly rocks!

Stani Army said...

Sid, no, do you have a link to a clip? I hate Shane Watson and wanna hate him some more.

Haddin was getting dissed in the Aus media. He lacks in skills compared to Gilchrist so tries to make up in other ways.

...no need to apologise to Nightmare, she's in the Christmas spirit (or is the Christmas 'spirit' in her?). She cant even find it in herself to hate me?!

Sidthegnomenator said...

Stani, Jrod has a clip up at CWB:

What a pathetic little greasy mamma's boy. Nail him to the pitch and use the heavy roller I say.
