Don't know how & where they pulled out 259 is the target to be scored! I think it's short changed to favor England somehow. No way Lankans can make this bloated score.

With Sanga in they might have done. I truly rate him as one of the greatest subcontinent bats there has ever been.

Huh. They are giving this match live stream on ESPN for free in USA. they stopped giving all IPL matches for free. Perhaps there is no demand hence free?

I guess you missed my joke.
Those round Gandhi style glasses are made famous by Harry potter. I hate that characterization as I find it waaaay too stupid. There is an Indian parady for same in Hindi called Hari-puttar aka son of Hari, which is equally annoying ;)


I think I may have been trying to join in the banter that Striped Lungi described before.

And certainly missed the joke.

Probably sometimes it is more the way things are written, in construction, this can be important too.

Still, I am man enough to apologise to you for missing the point.

Maybe I can take a break awhile and reconfigure, thing was I just thought I was annoying people and you guys want to keep this fun.

Dina mix.. no one annoys anyone here.. or rather everyone tries to annoy everyone else but fails miserably.. so no worries on that front.. Just be yourself and try to a slightly thicker skin.. no one here likes to offend.. whatever is said is to get something else interesting in similar vein that is about that. So just relax fasten your seat belts and get on the ride.

As for SGGH.. welcome now we got 3.. GS with his tatoo AND WORSE KP.. Super with his Lalit Modi ecuddling and you with boyce.. Soon the entire world would be mad and you all would be the founding fathers.

Now if that is not CF nothing else is.

And dinamix no apologies man.. infact perhaps I was a tad harsh on you so my sorry to you.. bygones be bygones and baigans are always baigans... so in the spirit of uski maa ka baigan.. lets move on.. hugs and kisses.. jhingalala to boot.

Ok so where do we stand.. WASP is Whining and Sulking Probablity to the ones who do not know what it means.

England were always good at it anyways.. :D

Ah, a most impressive victory for England, Cook looked like a bit of a passenger though, how much longer can he stay in the side with other openers like Hales and Carberry waiting to get in?

Jordan was very impressive - should be red hot next summer and we will have Jordan v Johnson for the ashes....

My mistake dinamix Bhai. Most of my posts sometimes lack clarity as I am always in a hurry that too off my cellphone at times. We used to read lungi posts 2-3 times to understand what the hell he is talking about most of times. We do have some dark comedy strain that's not funny at times. ;)

dinamix, sorry to have caused a bit of excitement here. I was only joking! And GS never says anything serious. Except when he's talking about his old crush Dale Steyn.

Also, I love have a CSK fan around so that I can bash Dhoni when they lose and have it actually mean something. Hah.

As for this match. Well done Mr. Jordan. Perhaps you will follow in the footsteps of another Mr. Jordan.

Is it really SL writing in this thread?

Cannot believe...

No need to read 4-5 times to understand. Seems sensible posts and one would thing some ordinary guy is behind it and not our Baba Chavatri?

It's OK. Don't panic. Lungi still has not broken his golden rule, which is to never ever post about cricket in cricket threads.

I should add a disclaimer: the only reason I log into CF during IPL season is to read Lungi's posts. Especially the ones in languages I don't understand. NOTE: this is all of them.

who says green? They are color blind. You are red man from Mars who came to earth with a purpose. You are a probing specialist.
