People around the world are bemused. Stock markets have crashed overnight. Ashton Kutcher did not tweet for a good 2 minutes.Such is the power of what Angelo Mathews has done on the cricket field.
“I’ve never seen anything like it” said a shocked Sri Lankan street vendor.
“It looked vaguely familiar, but I’m not quite sure” said new boy Shaun Marsh on the matter.
Arjuna Ranatunga, a man of few choice words said “I know what he did here and it’s the IPLs fault. Don’t you see ? DON’T you bloody well see ?”
Renowned socialite Paris Hilton said “That’s not hot”
“If I understood what Mathews did, I could have made a movie about how confusing it was” Christopher Nolan ruling out the possibility of a movie on what Mathews did.
This is what we have to say to all those people. Balls. Big hairy Balls.
We liked what Mathews did because we generally like test match hundreds. They are, say for instance, better than a 23 or even a 65. They are made even better when they give you team a lead with more than 5 sessions left to push for a result.
But if Sri Lanka are left with 10 runs to get with no more overs left. It would probably be Mathews’ fault. Right ?
Now the world has confused us. Damn you world. Damn you and your crazy righteous theories that make us doubt our selves.
