Nightwatchgirl's Pick of the Cricket News this week
Farewell Ricky Ponting and Michael Hussey. NWG always enjoys it when useful Australian batsmen retire, even if one of them is moody and small.
Stuart Broad is on NWG's naughty list. If she ever meets him she would like to educate him in how to be a polite human being instead of being mean to Sir Ian Botham. It's not on Stuart. And that's probably why your heel hurts. Just saying.
Of all the things to invent in the world of cricket, did we really need wickets that light up when they get hit? NWG is doubtful. The Big Bash therefore falls short in terms of innovation. She would have preferred one fielder to have springs in their shoes so they could jump really high or something equally as funny/ridiculous/dangerous.
NWG would like to advertise herself. For once. She advises you all to listen to this podcast and note all the kind things they say about NWG...
It is my mission to make cricket understandable to all. So along with cricket news, there will also be explanations of particular rules and any other weird business that happens on or off a cricket field.
