What he said:
“Disappointed to hear I’m probably the only Nz cricketer to score a hundred today!”
Scott Styris tweets his reaction—from the golf course—to Team New Zealand’s dismissal for a paltry 150 runs in the second Test against Australia at Hobart.
James Pattinson claimed his second five-wicket haul in two games to put Australia in the driver’s seat on Day One.
What Styris really meant:
“At least, my handicap is not a guy named Pattinson.”
What Styris definitely didn’t:
“Hey chaps, keep this up and you can join me on the golf course from days four to five.”
“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.”
