The 51allout community can be generously described as ‘easy-going’. If you cook someone else will wash up. If you buy beers someone else will fetch them from the fridge for you. And if you spend the day watching the cricket then someone else will probably do the review for you, someone who spent the whole day watching The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin on DVD instead.
So we find ourselves in the awkward position of reviewing a day’s play of which not a single ball was seen. It’s not as if the notes we were left to work from are any help either: the only bit we could really decipher just says ‘M KHAN IS BENT’ in big letters. However, we didn’t get where we are today without making stuff up so we’ll just see if we can blag this one.
Looks like Ian Bell batted for ages. Jimmy Anderson probably wants to work on his average so they let him have a go as well.
It’s not massively clear, but it definitely looks like someone’s written Chris Woakes’s name a couple of times in the notes. He must have done something to deserve that, so he should probably be player of the day.
Apparently the bit when Andrew Hilditch got fired from his job at Argos. Seriously, would it have been that hard to type these notes up?
The 51allout petty cash to be raided to buy a typewriter. Someone else will probably do the review of the day.
