The names Younus, not Younis

Even Q over at Well Pitched doesn’t seem to know this. What kind of blogger is he anyway, don’t even know his players names.

Whatever the fuck his name is, I hope he fucking gets the 400. Because that would be the ONLY pissing highlight of this game.

You cant blame either side for whats transpired over the last 4 days.

Sri Lanka batted at over 4rpo for the whole of their innings and set up 600. Pakistan had to get 446 to avoid the follow on.

But the wicket has just been so fucking useless and flatter than a Canadian highway. You could play bloody snooker on that piece of shit turf.

The four spinners, who were supposed to be the key weapons in this test have figures of

82 – 8 – 310- 5 (Malik and Kaneria).

115- 25- 300- 2 (Murali and Mendis).

At least 3 of these bowlers can be considered genuine spinners who could, on their day, trouble any batsmen in the world. But then again it comes to the pitch, which has not offered an ounce of solace for anyone.

So Younus, the keg falls into your lap, or rather your hands and maybe your bat, if this test match is to be remembered for anything other than this epitome of docile pitches, then please go out there and better Brian Lara.

I don’t care how you get there, but I prefer if you get there in quickfucking time.

You don’t have to prove to us about your levels of concentration, we have seen it in every one ofย  545 balls you have faced so far.

Just inject some life into this game. Reverse sweep Dilhara if you can. Maybe switch hit for a six. At least then the selectors might see how shit he is and drop him.

You owe (youn)US.

You bleeding owe us.

    I will try to remember the Younus thing.

    It seems a bit surprising to me that someone could get annoyed at a transliteration into the English alphabet (I’m not saying they’re wrong to get annoyed, it just seems strange to me). To me the correct spelling would be in Urdu…. Though I guess he’d have to fill out official forms in English in certain countries.

    And where’d u pick up YounUs from? Its always been Younis. Every Younis in Pakistan is a Younis with an ‘I’… even Waqar.. I am 200% sure its Younis but after ur post I double checked cricinfo and they also have him down as Younis…

    So why YounUs?
