What I heard last night - The Geeves & Clark Story

So about 12 hours before now, Amy S. chanced upon a news bulletin on television, and something she was not expecting at all appeared. Apparently Stuart Clark was heading to South Africa after selectors informed him he'd be the replacement bowler for Brett Geeves, whose faked foot injury was orchestrated entirely by Ricky Ponting.

There was a moment of confusion before a bout of laughter. The selectors are excellent at coming up with all sorts of twists to keep us interested. On Cricinfo, there's an interview up where he talks about how he has had to organise another passpot and whatnot because his is currently at the British consulate. He even says he didn't expect to be playing a part in limited overs matches for Australia, but apparently he's a better option than a readily available Brett Lee.

Good stuff.

Stuey's also going to the UAE for the Pakistan matches.
