Brett Geeves: What he said, really meant and definitely did not
Australian fast bowler,Brett Geeves,announces his retirement from first-class cricket. He joins the growing legion of pacers who feel that their bodies cannot cope with the non-stop nature of the game. The toil and rigours defy the laws of bio-mechanics.
What he really meant:
“My back’s had it, mate. As for the Egyptians, they’re all crying: “Mummy!”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I’m off to play cricket in Cairo.”
