KP isn't very good at T20

The boy has a sense of humour. Speaking to The Mirror, he had a little to say about his T20 performances:

"I'm not very good at Twenty20 cricket, am I?"
"Funny chap," hordes of Englishmen chuckle over their morning paper. That's more like it, an English cricketer not believing he can play well. This is what the fans want.

I'm just glad I didn't have to actually listen to KP as he said this or I might not find it quite so funny. Whenever he talks, something inside me dies and I find myself squirming at the sound of his voice.

But KP is about to show even more of his comedian side when talking about the IPL:

"I made a great captain didn't I? We won two out of six when I was there and then Anil Kumble took over and they got to the final."
A failure as captain, the fans will love that even more.

He's not very good at T20, is he?

Don't worry Ames. If a part of you dies everytime he speaks, I'm certain I bring those parts back to life.

Did he just swallow a fly or does he have seizures everytime he hears the death rattle?

Amy said...

I'm sure I could bring myself to life, thanks.

Someone just googled "dhonisex" to get here. Was that you?

KP is ace.

Check out this video of Albie playing cricket with kids.

Amy said...

That's funny, a few people have posted the link to it now. It's quite good, but Albie and Dale look quite similar in a lot of shots.

Ankit Poddar said...

Amy,

how did the person googling at dhoni sex reach to your site? are you that into MSD?

were the english chuckling with tea between their teeth?

Esra_Star said...

I generally only manage to hear two words before I piss myself laughing at KP. It's about time he admitted he was shit :P

Amy said...

Ankit, they reached this page from the search. But I'm planning on attracting more google searches like that by deliberately posting about "dhonisex". The things I do for hits.

Esra, I'll bet a two year old's voice is more masculine than KP's.

Stani Army said...

What's sex Ames? Can you tell me?

Of course it's not me. I think the person's left a clue. Whose space bar doesn't work Ames? Hehehehehehe

Al said...

I think Albie's quite cute, Amy, you're harsh, he's not ugly. Who is Graeme Smith's boyfried? I keep hearing that he's gay but nobody has told me who his partner is.

Dale looks like Bear Grills

News from SA: ROFL almost drowned during a training session in Durban. I am not kidding! They were in teams of 4. ROFL with JP, Steyn & GS. They decided ROFL should swim the 300m. (I bet you if Botha was in his team he would have gone after and saved him.) Here's the link, sadly its in Afrikaans.

Amy said...

Al, what on earth made you think I'd ever say anything bad about Albie? I mean, I would, but he's the star player of this blog.

Boncam, I think that was the sound of me screaming "nooooo". The death of ROFL would be terrible. I don't understand what you mean by making him swim 300m. Can't he swim that far?

boncam said...

I think they had to do a kind of triathlon thing. Some were running from the hotel to the beach, others were in a canoe and fuckface Graeme decided ROFL should do the swimming, its about 3.5km I am sure he can swim, GS & JP are coastal guys while ROFL is from the highlands, anyway the current was just too strong and he started going under. He was saved by a lifeguard who didnt even took the chance of swimming, he canoed over.

I emailed you some spotto's.

Esra_Star said...

OMG how dare Graeme try and kill ROFL. What a terrible fucking person, jealousy is a curse!

Phantom said...

Smith is an out and out bastard, a lower life form as we all know. I bet he wouldn't do that to a cute guy. My money is on Francois Pienaar as his partner btw or Frans Steyn.

boncam said...

*Added to the "Botha for captain" campaign.*

Amy I think you should start a new competition: Who is GS' boytoy?

Anonymous said...

It's hard to know Boncam whether he'd go for the pretty boys or the rugby types. I think he seems to fancy JP a bit. What do you reckon? Who's Amy's money on?

boncam said...

Who wouldnt fancy JP? AB would be my second guess.

Phantom, I am guessing that you also noticed the way GS was looking at Francois in the Lays ad.

fool said...

Actually, KP is only trying to convince englishmen that he's a Brit, and not a South African. And what better way to do that than by displaying some self-deprecating sense of humour.

fool said...

Addendum:

Learn learn.

[:P]

Amy said...

Nah, Graeme hates AB because he's always outshining him.

But otherwise, I wouldn't know who to put my money on. Probably all of them, that's the kind of thing Graeme would do.

But if you look at GS on Twitter (*cough*) he seems to have a history with Prince Henry too.

Esra_Star said...

Graeme seems to have eyed off or attacked almost every national and domestic south african cricketer and anyone in any other team his has played in (IPL, African XI etc). Any picture website will just add confusion as to who he prefers.

Although on twitter Graeme has mentioned many a player he likes ;)

Amy said...

I feel like an undercover spy.

Anonymous said...

I think that Smith fancies AB big time but as Amy has said would be just a trifle jealous of him. I've seen other pics of him and Pienaar together at functions and I haven't seen the ad so that would be just further confirmation but I don't think he can resist anyone. The worst two pics were of him on top of AB and then JP.

Amy said...

The one on top of AB was terrifying. It was more rapist than lover, actually.

I haven't seen any of these Pienaar photos with GS. Disappointing.

Don't know if this link will work because it's been crashing a bit but it shows Smith gazing adoringly into Pienaar's eyes.

Amy said...

That's one hell of a link. I was able to see a thumbnail of the photo. Nice.

boncam said...

the lays ad of Francois is at lays.co.za

Amy said...

Strangely enough, I can't seem to access the site at all. Too bad.

The real GS is awesome. Someone should send him a link to your blog.

Amy said...

boncam said...
