“The cricketing gods might look down in a bit of disgust.”
Alastair Cook is not too happy with Sri Lankan batters, who appeared to lose sight of the target in the attempt to ensure that Dinesh Chandimal reached his century at Lord’s.
What he really meant:
“The rain gods did not oblige us with a wash-out. Why should they favour Sri Lanka and particularly Dinesh Chandimal? ”
What he definitely didn’t:
“I would not have had much to say had Sri Lanka batted first.”
“I’d better say something critical before any one points out how long I took to make my ton.”
