Kamran Khan for all you suckers

Everyone wants to know about Kamran Khan. Everyone.

Apparently many people were impressed by his antics in the last match and are now intent on googling as many variations of "Kamran Khan cricketer" as possible. You'd think there's very few, but there's actually a lot of ways you can plug that into a search engine.

But my favourite one is: THE STORY OF KAMRAN KHAN

Upper case and all. THE STORY OF KAMRAN KHAN. Sounds like a fable, of a mighty hunter and his valiant efforts to save the king from a lion. But it isn't. Anyway, it turns out that if you were, in your uncontrollable state of excitement, to search THE STORY OF KAMRAN KHAN, and wait with bated breath, the first result that would turn up is "Kamran Khan has a story".

Apparently there is a god.

I somehow have this feeling that he is chucking. He might be a slinger like Malinga and Edwards, but his right hand seems to bend too much.

An Aussie talking up a chucker!!! They don't even bowl the Doosra as they consider it chucking! Has hell frozen over?

adverbin said...

Er.. Amy.S., I reffered to Warne when I said Aussie. I keep thinking you are a Saffer!

Amy said...

It won't be long before we hear a chucking claim anyway, so until then, this kid is going to keep taking wickets.

Adverbin, that makes more sense now. haha.

Hey the chucking claims are a bit unfair. I did not think Kamran Khan was chucking yesterday. I might have to watch his action a bit closer now though.

Q said...

He does seem to be a chucker but he might just get by with the 15 degree rule.

And he does have a story.. the IPL made his life.. he used to sleep at the railway stations and travel from place to place trying to get a break in cricket.. and now he has a contract worth a few hundred thousand dollars..

Amy said...

Yep, that's the story I blogged about, which turned up in the google search.

Hi I think It was blatant chucking. He is still young so if gets corrected by ICC right now then his carrear will be fine in future. So please someone reports him .

Amy said...

Haha, I'm sure when someone loses a match to him pretty badly they'll be running to report him.
