That is a huge wicket and the momentum in this match may have just swung


And so indeed it proved to be as the Sydney Thunder innings ended for 132 all out in 19.4 overs. For his exploits today, amongst which he can count having scored the fastest 50 in the competition, Chris fully deserves the wooden spoon dat de Thunder end up with.

Lastly, in the style of James Alexander Gordon.
Chris Gayle lived it up large; Sydney Thunder went winless

That's all folks. Oh, for the record ball-by-ball lifted from www.cricinfo.com, just so as to try offest any gripes they may have over copyright. :roll: :roll:

BallOil, I have to inform you dat my party dem does nevah done as long as i on the patch ... i mean decks!

Now, just for your listening (pleasure??) and to show dat i do give fair regard to a noteworthy performance by any cricketer, including Chris Gayle's MOM of the match award (it can be argued over whether it was a MOM performance)today, here is a tribute: Chris Gayle, living it up, scored something today.

Oh, Bally, in the interests of accuracy would you consider correcting the match result in the following:

Hey, BallOil, I just joshing yuh :) feel no fret. I was really concerned that we recorded the fact the Gayle's team lost despite him upping his game today.

Now, as for rumours that any New Zealand clubs fighting for Gayle, what can i say, pardna? ... Oh, i know, if true I hope his 'bad patch' aint gonna get some sheep sh1t, i mean manure, in the mix. On second thoughts, a New Zealand sheepy sh1t mound would be ideal patch for my vegetables to grow in!

So Chris, just in case BallOil right AND dat bad patch tun into a sheepy sh1t mound, please remembah seh dat is howzdat who put in de fus order for some of dat manure! Ah gon be watching and posting!

I have been informed that any talk of New Zealand hosting a T20 competition called the MML, Mutton Manure League , is absolutely false. In the unlikely event dat such a thing does happen ....

Very good, howzdat....

let's look at how our three West Indian batsmen performed in the BBL:

Pollard - 138 runs
Gayle - 137 runs
Samuels - 73 runs

Not a good tournament for all our guys with the bat....

LOL No fret, it's all good...:) Gayleforce found his mojo back ...tie down your party tent.

Looks like the NZ thingy falls through..

A ''distinct possibility'' became a no show yesterday as Central Districts' cricket bosses revealed West Indies opener Chris Gayle would not be coming to play. Speculation had been rife that Gayle, who is currently playing in the Big Bash series in

Nope! Samuels to be rested? Though West Indies only playing mickey mouse cricket this year, Samuels is gonna be a key player in all aspects of the game. Those performances would not have dented their market value too much but would have been good if the region's local fans could have seen them playing.

Central Districts have quashed reports West Indies batting star Chris Gayle will be brought...

What a pity cos Gayle, Stags, Mutton Manure League am sure would all have proven fertile material for my crazy mind. Ah well.
