sometimes of themselves. Cricket blogs are especially bad in this regard. (It's
to be expected, really -- the ratio of existing blogs to original thoughts must
be at least 10 : 1, and considering the amount of new blogs propping up every

Heather Brooke of world cricket, Kumar Sangakkara, emerged victorious. It was neck and neck between him and Lance Klusener for most of the week, until Sanga played that glorious 94 against Mumbai and charged ahead. (Obviously, people are starting to forget some of Zulu's exploits.) It's interesting to note that VVS Laxman got no votes in the end... I guess that's what he gets for faking outrage at, for once, being made to play on a pitch with some juice in it.
On to this week's question, inspired by recent events: "Which cricket player would you most like to make cry?" The choices are on the right column.
