So Frigging Mad At Sri Lanka’s Cry-Baby, Unsportsmanlike Test Cricketers: Take The Ball And GO HOME!

That is why the school I attended in London had this very profound saying: “Play the White Man“.

The frigging Sri Lankans, in the 2nd match against the Windies, in St Lucia, were were frigging disgrace. They acted just like brown guys and that irks me because it makes all of us brown guys look bad.

Refusing to PLAY is a heinous crime when it comes to cricket.

I blame the umpires. They should NOT have pandered to these big cry-babies. When they didn’t take the field at the appointed hour the game should have been awarded to the Windies.

They buggers should just take their ball, tampered or otherwise, pack their bloody bags and go back to where they came from.

We do NOT need them.

They are BAD news to cricket.

I hope the ICC ban them for 1,000 years!

Am I mad. Yes. I am frigging mad.

I hate to see MY CRICKET disrespected.

You know this is why there is an expression: “just not cricket”.

The bloody Sri Lankans definitely did NOT play cricket.

Bunch of cry babies.


Another time they acted up like buffoons.

Sri Lanka’s Constantly ‘Thanking God’ Niroshan Dickwella Is Run Out — Did God Forsake Him!

Another example. Note hand is higher. Closer to grill.

Yes, of course, a lot of cricketers from various countries seek divine help especially when they are batting — and give ‘thanks’ — with eyes pointing up — when they reach a meaningful milestone.

Sri Lanka’s obviously Christian Niroshan Dickwella (from Sri Lanka’s 10% Christian minority) has taken this to ridiculous extremes.

When he is batting he is INCESSANTLY ‘crossing’ himself. Yes, some players do that once when they first come in … Not, Dickwella. He is crossing himself every few minutes. He kind of gets distracting and obnoxious.

But, we cricketers are a superstitious lot and I will indulge Dickwella in his giving thanks to God — so blatantly and constantly.

What puzzles me is how he reconciles his faith and trust in God when he gets out — especially this run out, on Day 3 (June 8, 2018) of the 1st Test against the Windies. It was pretty stupid. He was strolling oblivious that Braithwaite was going to take a shy at the stumps. Now God could have saved him. But, God forsook him! What does he do then? You don’t see him crossing himself when he gets out (or drops a catch).

That is my dilema. How does he rationalize his failures?

He also got suspended by the ICC for two ODI matches. God didn’t bail him out. But, he seems to ignore these let downs. Strange. Very strange.
