The Rocky Hauritz Show

I love cricket. And I love the Ashes. I was surprised that it started so early last night, I thought it would all begin an hour later and I’d have to go to bed before lunch. But I managed to see a little bit of Hauritz bowling and couldn’t have been less impressed.

This article would be defamation if truth wasn’t a defence:

“And that is why when Nathan Hauritz bowls his right-arm spinners Australia is effectively one man down. Hauritz may as well pull a hamstring and sit the match out in the sheds. Such is the modern disregard for balls that spin into a right-hand batman, that only when pitches spit and scream can Hauritz rise above mediocrity.”

    “Such is the modern disregard for balls that spin into a right-hand batman…?

    Yet Murali & Harbajan seem to do ok…

    The article makes that point – I should have included that. Basically they’re ok because they have the Doosra and a bit of unpredictability.
