… almost the width of Gatting
I know, I know – I shouldn’t mock.
But fuck it, I will. Because I had to put up with the crap when we were mauled by Pakistan at Headingley; because I know England fans would mock if it were us; because they stole our little urn and; because, let’s face it, it’s fun.
Also, this week I agreed to be All Out Cricket magazine’s Aussie butt monkey, strategically placed so that England cricket fans can feel superior to someone (for a change), so this is nicely timed. It has made me feel marginally better about selling my soul.
And, meanwhile back at home, we prepare to face India at Adelaide where, as I am told, England absolutely wiped the floor with us last year. Personally, I think they might be making it all up because I don’t remember that.*
