I have not followed cricket since we left England so I was surprised when my Google alert of “Dead Sea Scrolls” found this article. Guardian Unlimited Sport | Cricket | Murali gives umpire Hair no chance to poop his party. The key quote:
What a mesmerising performance from Murali on Monday, though, and not just from the viewpoint of England batsmen who would have had more success reading the Dead Sea Scrolls. Every ball was a mystery, delivered by a goggle-eyed contortionist who greeted the result, good or, rarely, bad, with a grin.
I am not sure who the author, Mike Selvey, is. One of Jim’s students perhaps? 😉
