Kerry O’Keeffe Has The Final Word On P Hughes


What he said (via ESPN Cricinfo):


“If P Hughes is shaving tomorrow and gets a nick,M Guptill will appear from the medicine cabinet with a band-aid.”


ABC radio commentator Kerry O’Keeffe sums it up—succinctly—when Phillip Hughes departed once again in the second Test at Hobart—caught M Guptill, bowled C Martin.


This was the fourth instance in the two-match series that the Australian batting scorecard read as above.


The Tweetosphere was abuzz with reactions to Hughes’ unfortunate predilection.


Sample a couple via The Wall:


“Initially thought Chris Martin was giving Phil Hughes a send-off – turns out he was giving him some batting tips.”


“If Phillip Hughes was cheating on his girlfriend Guptill would be the one who caught him out!”


What he really meant:


“Nicks, cuts, Guptill, Martin and Hughes—The Inseparables.”


What he definitely didn’t:


“Action replay! Action replay! Action replay!”
