No argy-bargy, fine?
Mate, get it abso-bloody-lutely clear in your head. We are here for the serious business of batting and not tiddlywinks.
Bowlers are meant to be bagged. Bagged till no kid dreams of becoming a bowler again.
That is how ICC also wants it.
As a batsman, you would treat a bowler exactly with the same respect that a pariah dog has for the nearby lamppost.
From a socio-political point, bowlers are our class enemy, if you know your Marx well.
Karl Marx, you nitwit, not Groucho.
Remember, every maiden over is nothing but a public announcement that you have Kangaroos loose in the top paddock
Finally, a word of caution.
Beware mate. Offies from a certain northern Indian state can be quite an obnoxious weed.
And you may well come across pacers from a certain southern state, particularly with a dance back ground, with this tendency to get on your nerve.
But when going gets tough like this, don’t go troppo. Rather, ask yourself "What would Christ do?"
That’s all I had to say. Now join the chorus as we sing 'Waltzing Matilda'.
