We'll Have A Bat...

A green and menacing-looking pitch...overcast conditions, rain all morning, rain the day before...yep, "We'll have a bat". Another great call from the Captain, just plain unlucky to start off 3/10, eventually getting skittled for a paltry 127. After talking up a return to world cricket domination following the First Test victory, I think we all had that uneasy feeling...How is it that the Captain of Australia makes decisions like this that every park cricketer and armchair expert in the land could tell you are horribly wrong? That's downright embarrassing. And no matter what Chappelli says, there is no way known that Steve Waugh bats on this minefield. I can't believe that at 7/77 Chappelli was saying that it was a 50/50 call whether to bat first on this pitch and that batting first was not necessarily the wrong decision. 7/77! Pakistan without their best bowler Aamer in the bowling attack! The old tosser's finally lost it. There's no way known that even Kim Hughes would bat on this deck. So you could make a case that even the blubbering Kim Hughes was a better Captain than Ponting is. Surely this is it. This must be the end of the line for the Ponting reign of fucktardedness. In any working profession, if you are shit at your job, you either don't have any business/clients or you get fired. Ponting is doing a shit job. So fire his ass for fuck's sake! We'll have a fucking bat indeed.

Pretty sure Chappelli is just taking the piss these days. He knows that no matter what he does, he's got the job until the day a crazed Cricket Australia sniper finally takes the law into his own hands and puts an end to his nonsense in the only way that will stick. Until then, he's just going to string random syllables together and whatever happens, happens.

[Copy-Paste that paragraph and do a Search-Replace on 'Chappelli' for 'Punter' if you like.]

At Tea, they did an 'Awesomest Top Ten Moments of the Decade' thing. I wish they'd done a 'Stupidest Top Ten Moments of the Decade'. Our skipper would have swept the field. King of the World, baby!

Maybe everybody who so far doesn't seem to get it would have got it if they had of done that; in no particular order...Moment 1: We'll have a bowl...Moment 2: Take out all slips to Trescothick after 3 overs...Moment 3: Hilfenhaus will not bowl at this last pair...Moment 4: Mitchell Johnson will bowl at this last pair for an hour and a half...Moment 5: I will not bowl Stuart Clark ever if I can help it...Moment 6: First Ashes Tour Series loss...Moment 7: Second Ashes Tour Series loss to rubbish England side...Moment 8: South Africa choke again in home World Cup. Moment 9: Harbajhan slaps Sreesanth, Sreesanth cries like a baby...Moment 10: We'll have a bat...

You'd have to say Ponting dominates, nay, has a iron-fisted stranglehold on that list of stupidity...
