How South Africa Plan to Win the World T20

They're doing it already, you can see the nasty gleam in their eyes. According to Mickey Arthur, they've got two plans of attack, depending on pitch conditions: spin or seam.

But wait, there's more:
“We have the personnel. Whether it’s strategy A or strategy B we have seven bowling options and the ability to bat to number ten.”

The ability to bat to number 10. He doesn't mean bat well, does he? Because those last few batsmen will be a little dodgy, perhaps.

So while South Africa are preparing to win this thing, Q at Well Pitched, thinks they cannot. Who will win? Mickey or Q? Or Q taking the mickey out of Mickey?

I think they're going to confuse themselves with all these multiple strategies, multiple batting orders, multiple thoughts and what not...

Alls whats left is to have multiple captains!

Cheers for the link.

Amy said...

Multiple thoughts, hahaha.

How can they win with Smith as captain? They usually choke in these tournaments anyway.

My goodness talking of videos, check this out. Smith pokes Morne in the arse. How did he keep his job after this? Who cares about strategies when your skipper is constantly lusting after all the players!

Choking is what saffas do best. It's in their blood.

Amy said...

Anon 2, everyone is so fascinated by that video. Haha. I do believe the expression on Morne's face afterwards is priceless.

Did Smith ever officially apologise over that Amy? I bet all his teammates try to avoid his grasp everywhere but especially the changeroom. And while the others take WAGs on tour, what would you call his boyfriend?

It easy to say that the boys can bat to 10. But actually pulling it off is pretty fucking difficult. I do hope Mickey gets his head right and the saffas win. I will still laugh if they choke though...

Q said...

Haha.. that video is awesome!

It needs to be in a post Amy, if it isn't already!

J said...

That video proves beyond everything what the SA skipper is. Amazing that he couldn't control his urges in public. Yep that vid deserves a thread.

OMG, he really is gay.

Amy said...

Everyone's already seen it, if not in the comments section of a post of mine. I think I'll leave it be.

Anon Who Talks About Snape, it's so very difficult to differentiate between all Anons out there. But that quote about Morne Morkel Limited makes me laugh every damn time. It's pretty creepy.

Dawid said...

Yeah Snape is a bit snaky but he's laughing all the way to the bank. I've seen that Morkel poke vid before. I think that Smithy's team mates probably know he is gay but just get over it. I think it would be awkward though if he was dating someone on the team. Who is he dating Amy?

Amy said...

I dunno, but everyone certainly keeps asking me. I might have to make something up soon to appease the masses.

How does Luke Ronchi sound?

Oh god, what am I doing to a player I actually like. Sorry, it's apparently GS and Francois Pienaar.

He must like older men then.

Amy said...

Correction, he likes any men.

Stani Army said...

If your number 10 has to bat in a 20 over game, there's something wrong with your batsmen. So you are right Ames.

Why are you taking the P out of Qs name? Who do you think you R amy S?

Come on Ames, that's genius right? It's even in alphabetical order. Do I win?

Q said...

There ain't no P in Qs name.. but u get a lot of points for alphabetical order..

Stani Army said...

Noooo Q! P as in taking the P...taking the Piss!

Put that in and read it.

So? do I win?

Q said...

Haha.. I get it. Only Amy can decide whether uve won or not..

Amy said...

I was actually taking the P out of Mickey's name, but I'll admit, that's some pretty third-grade stuff there, Stani. You win.

Stani Army said...

Is third grade good? Anyone? Someone?
