I was expecting to see some unending ranting about the latest England debutant, Jonathan Trott, but saw that Coventry has equalled the 12 year-old record for the highest individual innings in an ODI of 194, set by Saeed Anwar against UAE.
True, Bangladesh don’t exactly have Shane Warne or Zaheer Khan in their bowling attack, but I expected them to easily knock over the Zimbabweans, considering the fact that they don’t get a lot of international matches to play.
To think that he would’ve broken the record if stupid Prosper Utseya didn’t take a couple off the 4th ball of the over, he would’ve got there, and perhaps even gone for the double!
I wouldn’t blame you for secretly taking your phone and telling the WADA people to come and raid my house to see whether I’m using recreational drugs, considering how delirious I’ve become and the fact that I’ve posted for the third time in 2 days.
However, for some reason which I don’t understand (perhaps because of the romantic in me), I tend to get a bit excitable when records are about to be broken!
This bloke is really good…just reminds me of a line from 5ive’s famous song “We Will Rock You” – …bloody you’re a boy, make a big noise, playin’ in the street, be a big man someday…Charles, this is your moment! Soak it up, young boy!
And, BTW, Coventry wears tinted glasses! ;P
