Rain, stops play, you can win or lose a test, with the help of the weather!

Well if you insist on standing outdoors for 5 days straight, expect to get a bit of rain every now and then

Anyway, the point of cricket is not to watch the game, but to hear the commentators:


"A very small crowd here today. I can count the people on one hand. Can't be more than 30" - Michael Abrahamson

"Strangely, in slow motion, the ball seemed to hang in the air for even longer" - David Acfield

"Bill Frindall has done a bit of mental arithmetic with a calculator" - John Arlott

"Well, Andrew Strauss is certainly an optimist—he's come out wearing sunblock" - Australian commentator in the fifth test of the 5-0 series whitewash in 2006-07

"The Port Elizabeth ground is more of a circle than an oval. It is long and square" - Trevor Bailey

"There are good one-day players, there are good Test players and vice versa" - Trevor Bailey

"No captain with all the hindsight in the world can predict how the wicket is going to play" - Trevor Bailey

"Lloyd did what he achieved with that shot" - Trevor Bailey

"Laird has been brought in to stand in the corner of the circle" - Richie Benaud

"His throw went absolutely nowhere near where it was going" - Richie Benaud

"I think the batsman's strategy will be to make runs and not get out" - Richie Benaud

"This shirt is unique: there are only 200 of them" - Richie Benaud

"That slow-motion replay doesn't show how fast the ball was travelling" - Richie Benaud

Plenty more where that came from but I'll leave it there.

Thanks for the heads-up, already I've found gold:


"nobody going to that place anymore because it's too crowded."

"I take a 2 hour nap from 1-4"

"If you come to a fork in the road, take it"

"It gets late early out there."

"A nickel ain't worth a dime anymore."

"Baseball is ninety percent mental. The other half is physical."

"He hits from both sides of the plate. He's amphibious."

"How can a you hit and think at the same time?"

"It's like deja vu all over again."

"The game's isn't over until it's over."

"They thoroughly examined my head, and they didn't find anything."

"You better cut the pizza in four pieces because im not hungry enough to eat six"


I busted a gut on some of these. But my personal favourite:

"You should always go to other people's funerals, otherwise, they won't come to yours."

O.K who remembers 'The batsman's Holding the .....?'

What a close finish, after 5 days! amazing
No sport even comes close.
I don't know many Yanks who appreciate cricket
in fact a lot of English also don't!

The english have weird red boxes called "telephones". I guess the economy REALLY hit hard there so nobody can afford a little new invention called "CELLPHONES"
