Got to Twitter after a knackered day and it’s all over my timeline and it’s TRUE *sigh* Shehzad’s struggling with his shoulder. You are Pakistani and living in there you should know this come on I was about to ask more about this from you because we cannot play without them :(

God I am so pumped up for tomorrow. But apparently, Afridi, Shehzad and Gul are doubtful for tomorrow and I’m just sitting here, staring at empty walls, hoping and wishing for the best. Cannot miss any of them. Aaand I wouldn’t mind to see Sri Lanka winning this but we just have to retain our title.

Cricket - The Kinks
Some people say that life is a game, well if this is so
I’d like to know the rules on which this game of life is based.
I know of no game more fitting than the age old game of cricket
It has honour, it has character and it’s British.
Now God laid down the rules of life when he wrote those Ten Commandments
And to cricket those ten same rules shall apply.
Show compassion and self-righteousness and be honest above all
And come to God’s call with bat and ball.
Now the Devil has a player and he’s called the Demon Bowler,
He’s shrewd, he’s rude and he’s wicked.
He is sent by Sinful Satan and he’s out to take your wicket
And you know that that’s not cricket.
He’ll baffle you with googlies with leg breaks and offspin
But keep a level head and don’t let that demon in.
So keep a straight bat at all times, let the Bible be your guide
And you’ll get by, yes you’ll get by.
All through your life he’ll try to bowl you out
Beware the Demon bowler.
He’s crafty and deceitful and he’ll try to L.B.W.,
And bowl a maiden over.
The Devil takes the weak in spirit and so we must always be courageous
And remember that God is on your side.
So keep old Satan in your sights and play the straight and narrow line
And you’ll get by, yes you’ll get by

We love a bespectacled man, never mind a cricketer - don’t you?
I miss Daniel. :(
We did warn you Freddie can come whenever he pleases. When the urge for Flintoff knocks, you better damn well answer.
