Fight the ugly
A very happy birthday



Wherein lies one of cricket's most compelling saving graces. In f***ball and rugby, such are the unprecedented standards of fitness and stamina, it is becoming ever easier to frustrate, spoil and negate your way to victory - or, at the very least, non-defeat. New Zealand held Italy to a draw at the last FIFA World Cup; New Zealand, to whose inhabitants f***ball holds roughly as much appeal as a Crowded House tribute band from Canberra.

I'm sure f***ball requires one to be, er, fit and possess tremendous amounts of stamina. I do wonder about the rules of f***ball, though.
