South Africa v England 2015/16

Postby Big Vern » Sat Dec 26, 2015 20:09

Early days, but a bit uppy-downy for England so far. The cricket has been downy, but rain stops play was a noticeable up.

If only Korea had been interested in cricket. Richie Benaud would have been cloned.

I didn't watch any of the South African innings, but it looks like Elgar should be royally pissed off with the tail (that seems to start surprisingly early in the order).

Very droll I'm sure, but lost on me as google translate has made me none the wiser. Droll translates as droll, which helps me not.

Anyway, bad luck to South Africa and I hope this series doesn't become a walkover. I'm sure it won't as the South Africans are scrappers.

It's "drol", not droll. It translates to "turd". The turd is in the drinking water. :idunno:

More like, the shit has hit the fan, in terms of meaning. :twocents:

Well, he is a plank, even though he tries hard to be posh and English and whatnot. :wink:
