Swannywoowoo's dayboo

Swann gets his dayboo in the wee small hours tomorrow. England will have a whole 1.75 spinners tomorrow, which is the most since Old Man Udal helped Monty out in India 2006*. They'd been doing reasonably well with the usual 1.25 spinners or occasionally with an extra .1 when Vaughan fancied a bash at it, but that extra half will hopefully make a pleasant difference.

* I can use statsguru, me.

Not a good idea to use Swann. He's a joke.

I guess they are hoping to buy some wickets from the Indians, who aren't the most ruthless around the place in terms of getting out to wides

Spigot said...

Coo, and I thought I was living on the edge implying things about Swann. You're in for it now... :)

Mel said...

Oh dear. Spiggy was on thin enough ice, but YellowMonkey has crashed through and is now drowning in an Omen 2-style fashion.

*shakes head in disbelief*

Incisive and fascinating as always Spig. Ever thought of becoming a cricket commentator? Move over Henry Blofeld - your successor is here!

Mel said...

I have the misfortune to have recently sat through dvd of "An Evening with Blowers". Tedious in the extreme.

I bet "An Evening With Swanny" will be much funnier (him being a joke an' all).

Spigot said...

Ceci, you know fully well i'm awful at this blogging lark... gimme a break!

Ceci said...

Playing the snivelling sympathy vote just won't cut it Spig - you know Mel and I will give a man a good kicking when he's down.

I'm polishing my pointy-toed stiletto-heeled thigh high dominatrix boots as I type.

How about a nice quiz? You're good at those (she says in a patronising voice).

Spigot said...

I'm still sulking that no bugger other than Damith has commented on my vaughan free post. I've got a stack of follow-ups and no courage to post them.

On the other hand, Ceci called me a man. yay!

Mel said...

Stop sulking, gird those fertile loins, and post your bloody follow-ups!

Mel> is it weird that I am turned on by

"I'm polishing my pointy-toed stiletto-heeled thigh high dominatrix boots as I type."

Spigot said...

40W21W. impressive... let's make him a 0.65 then.

Mel said...

I know how much it must have cost to type that, Spig, so I doff my cap to you (and sincerely hope that Swanny doesn't cock up the rest of the innings).

Damith - yes, very weird (but in a good way).
