So England does have some decent cricketers after all. Who knew?
Wisden have come out with their cricketers of the year and Stuart Broad, Graham Onions, Graeme Swann and Matt Prior have all managed a mention.
First off. NWG can understand Stuart Broad simply for that wonderful Friday afternoon at the Oval. Yes it was joyous. Yes it was wonderful. So fine.
Graham Onions: new on the international scene. Made a great impact. OK, he can stay too.
Graeme Swann. A naughty boy, but arguably England's greatest find of 2009. He hangs on by his finger tips after his bad driving.
Matt Prior: what? Why? When did he become a 'great' cricketer. Yes, he's a fine wicket keeper who can occasionally score a few vital runs, but really? Is he that amazing? Please someone let NWG know if she's missed something (like a secret England tour when he was brilliant and NWG managed to sleep through it).
