Delhi Twats

I have no idea what you're talking about. I never called the Chennai team twats. You must have imagined it.

Jakati spins Chennai to victory by 18 runs. Theoretically, that should be impossible, but it's not. Chennai got their miracle, and the sure Delhi win turned out to be a sure Delhi loss. Great. Too bad about Davo there. He actually had a good knock.

AND NOW CHENNAI ARE 4TH. I take that victory and I rub it in everyone's faces. Of course, Albie had very little to do with it. It's almost getting embarrassing. My pick of the players is failing while people like Jakati who the captain doesn't deem important enough to be named are winning matches for Chennai. Man up, Albie. Man up.

On a lesser note, I'm starting to get really freaked out by Ryan Campbell's obsession/love of Albie. Even I don't work Albie's name into my posts as much as he works it into his speech.

On the Deccan Chargers vs. Rajasthan match:
Just a few things, first and foremost that I have found a new best friend, folks. Really, I have. Abishek Raut, the star of the Rajasthan side. Aside from his splendid knock, did you see that post-match interview? He was so excited, like a little kid who'd just won the first race of their life. Great stuff. Seeing as my best friends are all little kids, in the most loose sense of the word, Raut joins the club. He put a smile on my face, the same kind of smile I get from watching babies from afar when they're not drooling or crying.

"ALRIGHT!!!"


In other news, I feel a little sorry for Yusuf Pathan. He's been delegated the role of slogger and there's no holding back. I think Ryan Campbell made up some dogy stats like "The chances of him coming off are 2/5 at the end, but 4/5 if he comes in early and bats to the end." Not sure where he got those statistics from, but for once Campbell is right. Yusuf is a class batsman, not just a slogger. He could bat up the order, but Rajasthan are relying far too much on him to save their asses late in the innings.

Quote of the day:
"[KKR] who are an absolute shabizzle."
-By the one and only Ryan Campbell

Also, how many motorbikes does Yusuf Pathan have? I hope he's sharing with his brother from another mother. And this time, it's actually Irfan.

Hmm. Must be a typo in the post header below, then. My apologies. :)

See, Amy, miracles happen. For your viewing pleasure again.

Of course you never called Chennai twats.
;-)

Hey I loved that interview of Raut! So sweet. (Or as we say to li'l kids: cho chweet.)
And no cliched answers either.

What would one do without Ryan Campbell's infite knowledge?

Amy said...

Rhoe, love it. I bet he'll put a blog post up any minute now saying he's learnt from his mistake and is staying sharp as always.

Leela, it was all very real and his emotions were out there for everyone to see. Nice change from the usual poker faced stuff.

Amy said...

Esra, I for one would happily kill myself. I couldn't live without his "expert commentary".

I think I need help. Real help. Serious help. I may even need Amy and AB (or ABY as I call them in my head) to convert me to the Light.

I saw sense in Ryan Campbell's comments last night.

I know, I know, I'm so embarrassed!!

Esra_Star said...

Richie, How drunk were you? I thought a comment made sense and then I realised how much I'd drunk and proceeded to sober up and then mock Campbell's stupidity!

Amy said...

Some of the things he said made sense, but there was also that disturbing feeling when he'd get that half-smile on his face and you just knew he was going to mention Albie's name lovingly.

But God is with you, comrade.

richie_141 said...

I was completely sober! There's just no hope for me. I shall retire to the middle of the desert and live the life of a hermit until God, or AB speaks to me.

Although, if Corey Wingard had his way, he'd be digging The Don up to play in the Ashes. For God's sake man, let them go!!

Amy said...

To be honest, even a corpse Don could help us win the Ashes.

Sam said...

Ahh Irfan is the brother for Yusuf from same mother.

Amy said...

Ah, damn. There go all my lame jokes.

Indophile said...

No you were right he is only a half brother

Amy said...

We were debating which mother/father they shared.
