Yeah I think I shared this in one thread. This is why I hope England don’t win.
Lol. Pakistan won fair and square.
South Africa were robbed.
waaa waaa waaa
You were turned into a deer in Lights by Pakistani bowlers Beefy.
These former England players need to learn from Atherton.
Beefy has always been a moaning idiot. Decent player but absolutely lacks class.
Pakistan bowlers finished of Botham in series afterwards so even if he was given not out he wouldn't have lasted.
I would like England to win this time around.
Australia is a poor, NZ is trash, and Indians won't shut up.
Those who have played first class, county or international cricket will easily understand what I am going to say below.
When a seasoned TEST specialist batsman comes on the front foot to block a ball (an outswinger), it's impossible to hit his off stump.
You can get him LBW out.
You can get the edge for a keeper or slip catch, or you can beat the outside edge of the bat. BUT YOU CANNOT BOLD HIM. It's impossible.
It's not possible to beat his outside edge and hit is wicket - Again, we are talking about a season TEST batsman on blocking on the front foot.
Now, many have agreed that Wasim Akram is not only the greatest left hander ever born, but outright THE GREATEST bowler that the game has ever produced.
With such a high class bowling reputation, the bowler bowls the delivery of his career. The delivery of the entire history of cricket - when he bolds Alan Lamb --- beating his outside edge on the front foot and make the ball barely kiss the outer side of the off-stump ---
And you are saying, you were robbed?
I agree with everything but not that Akram was the greatest bowler ever. Not by a long distance. I don't consider him even the greatest Pakistani bowler. Imran Khan & Waqar were better than him.
Australia to win iA.
This is botham’s annual whinge about the 1992 WC.
Even his fellow English commentators like David Gower, Nasser, Ian Ward laugh about his obsession. They tried to troll him last year that they did some retrospective analysis using hawkeye and DRS rules and it came out as “umpires call”. The look on botham’s face was priceless!
The respectful figures in English cricket like Alec stewart and Robin Smith rightly say Pakistan outplayed us.
Pakistan won the 1992 world cup fair and square, hopefully England win the 2019 one. Will be happy for both my countries.
