“Seeing Southee open the batting for Essex tonight and score 74 off 34 balls is enough to drive anyone to give up the game!”
Scott Styris is jocular about his reasons for quitting the game.
What he really meant:
“If Southee can play better cricket than me, I might as well quit.”
What he definitely didn’t:
“Tim Southee is so much better than Virender Sehwag.”
Kevin O’Brien led his Irish team to a sparkling upset over their English rivals knocking over a total of 327 runs with nonchalant ease. The burly Irishman scored the fastest ever fifty in a World Cup off 50 balls at a strike rate of 200.0. The English were well and truly KO’d.
India awaits this Sunday.
On a lighter note:
Why is it called pyjama cricket?
Just a little hint to get into bed once the game’s done.
