Okay. I don't give a shit about your bowling anyway. Wait, yes I do, but not in comparison to your batting. AB might be the irritatingly smooth one, but you can at least smash things around and be the interesting one. Just don't get out in the 20s all the time, for fuck's sake. It looks terrible on the scorecard in comparison to a half century or more. Slogging isn't everything, despite what I've previously said in this post. High strike rates are fun, but so are high scores.
The 4th ODI:
South Africa were sent into bat, and Herschelle Gibbs is going to get out sometime soon. I predict the next 20 minutes.
I don't remember the exact figures, but SA have lost on this ground something like 11 out of 13 times. And Australia have had many field days here. Haha, get it? That was a lame joke. Anyway, South Africa haven't had all that much luck here. Luckily (haha, another joke), Albie's here to turn it around for them. He better, or I'm writing another post in which I tell all his fans he's married to a man. Who says I can't be petty?
South Africa probably won't need Albie to go crazy anyway. In the SA tour of Australia, the ODI series was basically won because of him, and that's only because SA's top and middle order collapsed, then called the batting powerplay and sent Albie out to bat. Pressure is something he came to know very well, and he delivered every time.
These past few matches, Albie's just been traipsing around like a fairy, getting out while trying to slog the ball from here to the moon. That's a terrible analogy, but as I may have said a few posts back, I actually seem to be in a stupor of sorts. I don't even really feel as though I'm writing this. That's strange. Adios, watch the ODI. Watch Albie. He better perform or I'm tearing his house down.
That's not me.
