The most satisfying feeling in the world

Nathan Bracken:
7 overs, 0/41, economy of 5.85. Most expensive bowler in the team.

That is the way it should be. Until he cuts off his hair, every batsman should punish him, no exceptions. Even Harwood's got a wicket and he's old and getting worse by the year. Fittingly, Bracken has dropped down to 5th in the ODI rankings. Chew on that, Nathan. Or chew on your hair with acid-strength saliva.

In other news, AB's strike rate has dropped down to below 100 once more, thank god, and South Africa bring up their 150. Gibbs is still playing, surprisingly, having not swung madly at every ball that's come his way and lobbed it to a fielder. Hopefully, AB and Gibbs get out so the real player/s can come in and do the work.

Kallis had a better strike rate than Smith. That's just weird.

Gibbs will attempt to hit a six to bring up his ton, and hit it straight to Ferguson.

WHAT THE FUCK AB, YOU STUPID PIECE OF SHIT.

The Echidna dropped AB. I am mortified for him. After the match AB will approach him and tell him Jesus doesn't care whether you drop a catch, he just loves your inner soul. Fuck that shit, Ferguson. YOU DROPPED AB.

HAHAHAHA, ALBIE'S PROMOTED UP THE ORDER. GET THE BAND GOING PLEASE.

Batting powerplay. I give you permission to go nuts, Albie. So does the Queen. Our prayers are with you, so let the bat do all the talking and along with hitting a half century, run out my arch nemesis AB de Villiers.

GIVE ALBIE THE GODDAMN STRIKE, AB. Show off.

So I am not the only one who thinks Gibbs will "dismiss himself" in the nineties.

Bracken may have dropped down to five, but Kulasekara continues to be the #1 ODI bowler. He was mighty threatening against Zimbabwe and Bangladesh (he played a million ODI's against these two teams last year).

Against India and Pakistan, he picked up 2-3 wickets every match and conceded 60-70 runs everytime.

Bracken is not that bad. So he deserves his 5th place.

Looks like Australia are losing this one, and with it the series Amy.

Whatever are you talking about? Wickets against Bangladesh or wickets against India? I'm sure any bowler would take a victory over Bangladesh any day.

The individual rankings are a farce.

The series loss is great. But Albie did shit all to get them there. Too busy thinking about drugs, I expect.

No no, i meant Kulasekara had played close to 10 ODI matches against the minnows and ended up picking some 45 wickets there. Against India and Pakistan, he was mighty expensive, but managed to sneak in a wicket or two everytime. And he finds himself at 1. And Bracken drops down to five after a couple of poor bowling performances!

The individual rankings are not just a farce, but they are biased against good players.

Or players with ridiculous hair. I bet you've never considered that before.
