FCKing All Rounders
All Rounders are the shit.
Man for man, an all-rounder’s more likely to earn you more points than a pure batsman or a frontline bowler.
It’s a pity there aren’t too many good ones around.
Around the world, two all rounders imposed themselves on the field for historic wins for their respective teams. Andrew Flintoff & Shakib Al Hasan didn’t just raise their arms and get counted, they friggin choked the opposition under their arm pits till the opposition stopped kicking and struggling and gave into sweet surrender.
Flintoff’s burst on the final morning pulled Australia from the cusp of the highest run chase in test history, slammed them mercilessly on hard rock and flung them off a cliff.
He ended with a five-for, England got their first victory at Lord’s in 75 years in an Ashes test and I got 708 points for for making him my trump player.
On the other side of the Atlantic, in the Caribbean, stand-in skipper Shakib engineered Bangladesh’s first series win abroad in ten years as a test playing nation.
He pwned the West Indian batting line up and bowling and his match haul of 8 wickets and 112 runs saw the Toygers create history.
It’s a pity that this series was available on just one crappy fantasy cricket website. It’s a damn crappy website, I’m not putting up the link anywhere in case you’re still curious.
All-rounders: A Salut!
