My policy of selecting players based on links to the great state of NSW has certainly been reaping dividends. Michael Clarke did a stand up job as captain of “Jessie ate all the pies”, and Brett Lee was a bit weak early on but redeemed himself with both bat and ball taking me 475 points clear of the nearest challenger. Even Brad Haddin chipped in with a timely 169.
I’ve also picked up the coveted yellow jersey from the Cricket=Action=Art guessing competition. Sure I got there a little late and the clue pretty much gave it away, but I was the one who guessed that it was Western Australia’s pre-cursor to Cameron White, the original and sookiest crying cricketer, Kimberly Hughes.
Marty was kind enough to make me a prize for this guessing competition, a delightfully retouched image of David Boon in the most natural of positions. Be sure to click the thumbnail to admire Boony in all his splendor, or go over to Cricket=Action=Art for more of these superb artworks from the Cricket World.
