Brett Geeves: What he said, really meant and definitely did not


"My back’s about as stable as the Egyptian government.”

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 definitely didn’t:

“I’m off to play cricket in Cairo.”
