updates Mr. Undies?
Yes, thanks very much Doctor. What a scintillating beginning to another searing Aussie summer where too much cricket is barely enough.
Big Bash League is in, er, full swing
, the Mighty Aussies dominated
those plucky Caribbean chancers in a mercifully abbreviated two-match Test series, but the BIG news even bigger than the Big Bash - the BIG news that no doubt got your tongue wagging and prompted your query - the BIG news has got to be the ferocious display of terrific test cricket tactics that saw the Mighty Aussies WHALLOP the slippery Afrikaners in a record of less than two days. Bear in mind that South Africa is a Top 10
team - admittedly, ICC only records rankings for 10 teams. Nevertheless, this will go down in history as one of the greatest battles between two of the greatest teams in the great history of the greatest sport on earth.
You'd be forgiven for thinking the players had watched too much soccer these last few weeks, such was the preponderance of single digit score cards. When Steve 'Better than Bradman' Smith is out for 6 you know you're witnessing the GOAT elevating to even GOATier levels of GOATiness. If you like watching tall fellas hurl a hard red leather ball at 100 miles an hour in the genral direction of another man, only for the ball to skid on dirt, or bounce off some hard turf, or launch wildly off a divot, unpredictably careening into the stumps, flying several metres wide, or, hilariously, into the batsman's face, was this the match for you! It had it all, except batting and fielding.
The nation's - nay, the developed world's - collective skin is prickling in anticipation at the promise of more majestic match-play on Boxing Day. Don't blink or you might miss it.
