ashes series thread #53 (i think)
marsh selected for third test
ashes series thread #53 (i think)
actually this is thread #54 sorry lads
IMAGINE being English. KEK
Do any of you actually play cricket?
not a huge fan of cricket, but does all-nighters round his mate danny's house for the ashes as tradition
never played it in my life, not even in the nets at school
When the fuck is krautchan going to supply us with a fresh new set of memes
It's impressive that you still enjoy it. I feel like most who like cricket have at least played a little
Ylilauta memes are superiour, desu.
Lives in a mortgaged 2 bedroom house several miles outside the ring road of a major city in Essex
Successful and ambitious, but only within a very limited set of horizons (working in a high street bank, estate agent, etc.)
Very proud of his middling success and jumps to put down others for their perceived failures
Did 2 seasons as a rep out in Ibiza
Drives an Audi which he got on finance from his job, gf drives a fiat 500
Shops at Sainsbury's, which he considers upmarket. Special occasions merit a trip to Marks and Spencer
Only books in the house are cookery books, mostly limited to Jamie Oliver. A couple of Gordon Ramsay books for special occasions
Wears polyester suits to nightclubs
Has an extreme short back and sides haircut
Favourite place to treat his bird is at the top of the shard
Uses hair products
Favourite restaurant is Wagamama's
Has a study which he often refers to as a 'man cave'
Has a matching sofa set
Owns a games console
Owns a set of champagne flutes
Has a pug/french bulldog
Once considered buying a motorised tie rack
Watches ITV and has a Sky subscription
Eats turkey at Christmas
Depending on his generation, he either went to the 'university of life', or read a meme subject at a plate glass/ex-poly.
Isn't an Oxbridge reject because he didn't even apply for Oxbridge
Has Bradley Walsh reaction images saved on his hard drive
Spends his summer holidays in Spain, nabbing up a tidy deal online for a 3* all inclusive hotel in Menorca, flights included for £550 pp
rate my understanding of the quintessential deano lads
I played it in school a bit but it never impacted my enjoyment.
I faked off-games for basically almost all of secondary school since I was a sad loner and everyone hated me. Despite that I still enjoyed watching cricket, even if I didn't enjoy playing it with those people.
literally all my cousin except for the bit about uni
I was thinking more like this
le crazy goofy promo guy
calls Pakis "terrorists"
Sainsbury's is unironically equivalent or in some cases cheaper than Tesco nowadays, despite being twice the quality.
Sooner Tesco dies the better 2bh.
Time for some Coles vanilla ice cream with caramel topping lads
that kid who had the most fundamentally terrible bowling action and literally bowled the ball into the next net over
girlfriend is a trainee hairdresser, she would have been 17 and he was 23 when they first met
That kid who bowled medium pacers but had a huge as fuck run up.
That shit still needs to be sold user. If Tesco/ASDA fall their substandard foods will permeate into the other supermarkets
that kid who tried to be the designated spinner but did the full fast bowler run up anyway
goat icecream lads
get a detention for calling someone a tory
I once got an afterschool detention for not doing my homework.
The teacher didn't turn up.
That keeper that kept knocking the stumps over even though the batsmen were safely home and the umpire had to warn him to stop being a dickhead.
That kid who knocked the stumps in the ground with the face of the bat and putting a big dent in it.
that u/12's game where the povo club used metal stumps instead of real stumps and were not the size of regular stumps.
That's probably part of the reason why Sainsbury's is so much cheaper now compared to how they used to be. There's actually so much competitoin in the UK groceries market.
Expensive tier: Marks & Spencer, Waitrose
Slightly pricey tier: Co-operative
Normal tier: Sainsbury's, Tesco, ASDA, Morrison's
Cheap tier: Lidl, ALDI
Probably missing some 2bh.
Then you get like convenience chains like SPAR and stuff which are a complete rip off but just monopolise areas where regular chains won't go.
that club that had the ground mowed but all the cut grass was in lumps around the ground and it rained the night before so you had to try and hit sixes to get any runs
that coach that actually took U10 to U13's school cricket seriously and would threaten and insult you when not getting his way
Growing up relatively poor, single parent family the majority of that time, Sainsbury's was a staple. Their bargain bin cake sell off at 5pm was a welcome treat and their homebrand tomatoes, pasata, pastas, alright quality meats and stuff brings back good memories.
Marks & Sparks ain't even that expensive anymore where I live, they have great bargains on too.
Co-op's Owen brand stuff, especially doughnuts have a really weird, offputting smell to me.
How much is a bottle of Hardy's (varietal range) down in Australia?
Only £4.99 here at my local paki shop which is usually cat piss-tier wine, but I hear things are pricey there. I would derive great amusement if aussie wine is more expensive in Australia than all the way across the world.
Australians will be insufferable if they win it 5-0
Englel can't let it happen
Honestly winning homebabby series isn't that impressive anymore.
Marks is super expensive to me 2bh, I look at any price tag in those places and I'm thinking wtf that's like +50-100% markup compared to normal, no way that's proportional to what extra stuff they put in.
I have the money for Waitrose but for me, it’s Lidl with meat from the butchers down the road.
That's in Manchester and Cardiff I might add.
Just keep an eye out for their bargains is what I should've wrote desu.
They're like the John Lewis of supermarkets. I always saw them as an old Granny shop
england lost haha
Yeah Co-op isn't any better quality, it just seems to always be a bit pricey, although not Marks tier.
I've unironically never gone into a Waitrose. Don't seem to be around much where I've lived (midlands/north).
They should just standardize all pitches. Make them all AstroTurf instead. With a maximum boundary size no larger than the basin.
that kid who would call for lbw every single time it hit the batsmen's pad
thanks richo lad
Used to have one close. They were quality for the odd posh cola or quality stuff like goose fat for the Christmas dinner spuds. On the whole you've gotta be minted for it to be your main though
East Mids here
I would say perhaps giving away teams soft advantages (as opposed to obvious/"hard" advantages) like allowing htem to choose the ball of choice, ie. dukes in Australia for English bowlers. But then I hear dukes are too soft to handle Aussie wickets.
Probably the best is just to allow away captains to always decide whether they want to bowl or bat first.
that NEET who used to play cricket all day with kids 10 years younger than him
it was you wasnt it
do NEETS exist in india? I thought all of you had to work 10 hours a day in sweatshops to make ends meet
I'd give my left nut to go NEET and play cricket everyday
Everywhere there are people who have enough money in the family to last a couple of generations. The pretend to run some small business or freelance thing but they're actually just living off of their family wealth. There aren't NEETS in the western sense, but only difference is that their parents are providing for them instead of the government.
If magically Indians get as much wealth in their family as an average Australian family has everyone would just stop working and chill for rest of their lives.
only difference is that their parents are providing for them instead of the government.
Pretty sure no one outside of Scandinavia can NEET out on government benefits unless they had some of autism diagnosis. Almost usually parent money. But I get the point that they pretend to run a business or something.
KEK, this is so true. Pretty common in Mumbai.
the working class chubby kid with a slightly slingly action who bowled fast
private school kid detected
I'm one too 2bh.
wish there was cricket on
Southern fairy grammar school kid then.
Can't think of any other type of person who'd actually perceive another kid as "working class" while being a kid themselves.
at the time i probably didnt
anyone got a good highlights link for 5th day
think starc is actually going to have an alright career just bullying the fuck out of shit batsmen but he cant actually bowl
last night at the brothel this girl said i would have to pay her an extra 150 to eat my ass and i worked my magic on her and she ended up doing it for free. then i ate her out and she sucked my dick without a franger but then she tried to fuck me without a franger. crazy bitch.
england player gets out
x6 that's ur highlights kid
was over in no time. Maybe a couple of Bairstow 4's.
i like to watch sides as they lose test matches
having legal brothels
not having brothels that everyone knows about including the police but they just pretend it doesn't exist and go anyway whilst being technically illegal
Australia sure is degenerate.
You'll have to go to your feared reddit. They always post the day's highlights.
I first heard Phill Collins in the air tonight in a video on efukt.
not having such niche fetishes and pornographical tastes that mainstream websites aren't even on your radar
It was 6 years ago
The guy/guys running it fell for a blatant camwhore using an older woman posing as the Mum who's daughter was 'secretly' rubbing one out at the dinner table.
It's been top notch entertainment over the years though
budweiser doesnt taste that bad 2bh
WAY better than san miguel that '''beer''' is truly my nemesis absolutely vile
BREAKING NEWS:Time magazine names anti-harassment #MeToo movement as Person of the Year
That is the latest news folks
This will have deep effects on the cricketing world.
I've never heard of this shit?
I don't why but I don't like Budweiser, even Kingfisher tastes better to me.
that kid that took a leg stump guard but covered all the stumps anyway
that kid who had to take a sleeping pill after being psychologically cooked by Anderson in the evening session.
It was Smith btw
that kid who was always quiet and reserved among the lads and then later killed himself, revealing a childhood of abuse by his father and uncle
Even back in the 90s when Australia had the best test team in history, England usually managed to win at least 1 test away from home in the Ashes. These lads are fucking shite desu.
still haunted to this by this absolute shitter of a bowler who cleaned bowled me in school cricket
I wait for the day when we'd stop caring for the celebrities
When you noticed your team mates were patting arse instead of back as the season went on when you took a wicket
Nothing escapes my eternal watch
brainstar is a passfag
its a good investment honestly
miller is good
reddit= sociable introverts
gonna miss this bants for the next 8 days lads
the most reddit dismissal is an almost inaudible nick through to the keeper
I'm an anti-social introvert
Had it a couple time now mates always brings BiRa. I don't drink much though
a hashtag isn't a person
having a curry later
what type of curry
not far off, looks to be ~£4.50 for a 1L bottle of Hardy's, but no discerning wino is drinking shit with a label on it, you can get reasonable/decent cleanskin wines for ~£3 a bottle.
king prawn dhansak
those kids who was dropped from the squad after cracking under pressure
it was the whole english team btw
Wine bottles are always 750ml except some small exceptions for 1.5L wines, whcih are almost always cheap shit.
I've never heard of cleanskin wine and upon googling, that's a thing we do not have. The region of wine makes no difference upon the price usually, just the quality. £3 a bottle wine is basically impossible as wine is flat tax'd here at £2.05 a bottle no matter if it's a £5 wine or a £500 wine. Is why there's a huge difference between a £5 and a £7 wine here.
Closest to cleanskin is a cooking wine, which are usually £3.50ish. They're basically undrinkable shit tier wine that's used for cooking, as you could guess.
can you brits make curry yourselves or you order from restaurants?
were* sorry lads
just order from restaurants i guess. the one i have been going to recently is an indian family and he has his daughters working the till while he cooks in the kitchen
For me, it's Madras.
Corner shops have most spices.
Turmeric, cardamom, all spice, chilli powders, star anise, cinnamon.
My mum makes curries at least once a week. Usually Muttar Paneer but is more of a Muttar Saag Paneer cause all the spinach. She does Navarathan and Lamb keema regularly too, Chilli Paneer sometimes as a sidedish.
It's good stuff
my mum gets dhansak but always asks for it 'madras hot' might do the same 2bh
i can't get it right tho, i guess you need to learn from family and all my family are white
I heard they charge high. How much is a samosa there ? here it's $.15 - .3
They could if they wanted to but most Brits are lazy. There's always a lot of ingredients around to make pretty much anything.
There's usually premade store sauces though, from certain indian-sounding brands (that would be based in the UK). Most common mainstream variations will be korma, Madras, vindaloo, Rogan Josh, and a couple others I didn't really care to think about.
Restaurants tend to have more variety. The current curry selection at the place down the road is:
varies. i guess a standard takeaway would be like 3 or 4 £ for a few samosas
A curry in my experience (north/midlands/wales) will be around £5-6 for the curry sauce + meat and another £2-3 for the rice.
50p from shop at end of my road
like 2.50, 3 pound for a couple from a takeaway place
curry is my favourite food 2bh
Why do brits enjoy curry so much? And do you seriously eat that shit after a night out?
that's great m8. Saag is originally made of mustard leaves though but yeah you can use spinach also.
it's fairly easy Tbh. Just have to have good spices.
3 or 4 £ for a few samosas
yeah i guess it's not much.
that's pretty much what we get here too at most places
And do you seriously eat that shit after a night out?
is pretty cheap.
Kebabs are night out food. Indians do do wraps too though but fairly sure it's not proper indian food, just wrapping tikka foods in a naan wrap to appease British drunks.
Curry is more of a regular dinner in.
And do you seriously eat that shit after a night out?
we eat it after 4/5 pints at around 10pm
not after a night out
TFW no garma garam samosa
Samosa fresh cooked here are 35p for the small ones, bigger ones that are mostly potato go for 50p but aren't as good as the small ones.
bring back dean headley and graeme hick desu
love people who are proud of their heritage
give george garton a chance
hoping australia pick big mitch swepson for the final test
We do have wraps m8. It's not British.
paying 150 ruppes for a samosa
we have that rate in theatres
dont hate them just dont order tem
greasy, flavourless balls of onions
beautiful, crisp parcels of delicious spiced meat and vegetables
form me, there's only one winner
Never had a samosa here m8
samosa is north indian while bhajji is south indian
there are many types of bhajjis
I was told previously that you did not have naan wraps and if you did any wraps they'd be paratha or something beginning with p.
tfw comfy 21C
nothing beats dipping a ball of deep fried onion into dhansak sauce
Do you live in Ghatkopar?
They are not very popular but we have them with paratha, rumali roti (shwarma) etc..
Have you been here?
Pretty good place desu. I’m from there. How’s the rain?
broad needs to be dropped
crane in place of momeme
Just got back from r/cricket.
I've taken all of their views into account and they have given me a clear trajectory for the team.
We have to first of all drop Anderson and Broad, they're both shit and really horrible human beings and ultimately mediocre players who have an average of 200+ away from home.
Root is overrated and apparently really bad too, an immediate drop from the batting lineup. If you aren't even as good as Smith, what purpose do you have being on an international team? Cook is also mentally done, immediate ejection.
Reckon Marsh has a future ahead of him though.
anderson shouldn't be dropped
A meme is an idea, behavior, or style that spreads from person to person within a culture — often with the aim of conveying a particular phenomenon, theme, or meaning represented by the meme
i HOPE these are not actual opinions that reddit hold
Fuck, I hit backspace
you now remember owais shah
They literally are independent of each other. When you combine them together it seems ridiculous but (as long as England aren't destroying their opposition) these will be the opinions thrown out.
you now remember vikram singh
you now remember ronnie irani
do we, ie /cric/, dare i say it, have the biggest collective cricketing brain on the internet?
you now remember yasir hameed
r/cricket is literally an Aussie/Indian circlejerk.
Aussies hate any English player with decent stats.
Indians hate any player that actually makes their decent players look silly. See: Anderson vs Tendulkar.
you now remember Rajibul Islam Ozil
yasir hameed had a low key elite cover drive
Post moar Rajibul
Stopped raining, the weather has been awesome all evening. Are you from Ghatkopar?
But what a shitty day with England not putting a fight and India not wrapping up Sri Lanka after they were down to 35/4.
you now remember that dogged lower middle order white australian guy who represented west indies
thoughts on Raji's career stats?
really hate girls with unasked attitudes
really good bowling all rounder
From Santacruz. I haven’t watched any of the IND v SL matches. Don’t have to pay to watch the Ashes though.
damn, those are good stats
should say I subconsciously ignore all limited over stats
14 wickets in 4 first class matches

marsh selected for third test

you now remember a regular in the pakistan one day side called Rao Iftikhar Anjum
you now remember jon lewis terrorising sri lanka at home
lonely and isolated 2bh
Jesus christ. I remember watching him in one dayers. Didn't realise he had a mid-20's average. Only ever played 1 test? Despite averaging 27 in ODIs and 26 in FCs? What the fuck England selectors?
you now remember dale steyn's test debut against england where he cleaned bowled vaughan
Worst is James Hildreth 2bh.
Literally a talent even when he was young, scored a triple century when he was young. Never had a SINGLE chance in the England team.
Think of all the trashy shitty batsmen that England have put in the team over the years. Now realise that the England selectors never once gave Hildreth a SINGLE chance for international experience. It honestly boggles my mind.
I remember that. I had it on DVD (lol).
England won that series though. But amazing to think of all the talents that started out around the time of that series, Steyn, AB etc. AB looked really amateurish in that series.
he gave michael vandort a right seeing over
based matthew hoggard led >us to victory
well good series
Same. I keep listening to The Middle by Jimmy Eat World. Lessens the sadness.
yeah hildreth should have played
bit of a banger
it seems that 2nd innings cost jon lewis
and they lost the match sooo
It sure is.
Ambient is where it's at.

indians talking in English
It's easier to type in English.

Really getting sick of it.
that U-17s game where the Broadmeadows team used a wheelie bin with the stumps painted on.
Daily reminder that if England don't lose 5-0 they win.
said this before but if some special kind of autists team up they could successfully run live alt-commentary or a podcast.
That keeper who dives for every ball even if it doesn't reach him
That keeper that gets a wicket by farting as the ball passes the bat and then claiming a catch
elite aussie tactics

Are there any actual rules prohibiting unnecessarily uprooting the stumps every ball?

Loved mind your language as a kid. Also, Blackadder.
They showed some elite shows on Indian telly back in the day for English Language audience. Now it's mostly shit tier American shows geared towards young housewives who have nothing else to do but watch reddit tier shows and spend their husband's money shopping.
if anyone hasnt seen it https://youtu.be/iOBXuCYB4jQ
very very good documentary you should watch it user
Indians got Brass Eye and Blackadder.
Brass Eye especially seemed very British-centric, surprised Indians would have even liked it.
Already heard the dollop episode on it so I'm kinda worried that it'll just cover the same ground
Indians like to pretend to be British
Nah, we didn't have Brass Eye, first time I'm hearing the name.
Among the British shows I remember watching
Goodness Gracious Me
The Jewel in the Crown
besides Mind Your Language and Blackadder
I could be forgetting a couple or might not have watched some of them.

pretty pumped for this upcoming cricket game. anyone got any cool hype music/videos?
another lovely day lads
might go down to the local cricket cages at the park and have a bat with the lads (about 10 years younger than me - not weird though)
Just brewed a nice cuppa lads.
we need to give george garton a chance
I really hate Australia. I mean I REALLY hate them. The country, the people, the culture. Canada is the younger, faster, stronger version of Australia. Call us 2.0. Most Australians think I'm joking when I say this, but come here and our lads will fuck your shit up. Trust me, all the Australians in these parts think they are the new kids on the block in the anglosphere, but we straighten them out promptly. Its sad really, they come in and they think they have a chance, but they never do, did or ever will. Until next time
user, because if there ever is a next time, I won't be afraid to end this.
A left arm quick will give a different option, and Garton may be worth a punt.

You're welcome lad - I'm being almost as generous as our bowling attack tonight.
we arent bowling tonight, the game is over
It's still being replayed in my mind unfortunately.

that sounds very fucking good m8 hope you enjoy it
wish lela star had done that before her unfortunate surgeries
god she looks a trainwreck
I love lots of pepper on my eggs
oh shit your right
grape shisha: good, 7/10
So it's just a bread roll but with a little asshole on the top? Still seems pretty gay
if I don't have sriracha I will put a lot more pepper on
tfw 5 nights of getting up at some unearthly hour to watch the Ashes has left my body clock completely ragged, and I can't sleep.
A bit of dill goes well with poached eggs
I really don't like the taste of dill, even with fish

Fair enough. My mum's Swedish so she puts it on everything. I only really have it on eggs though
has anyone here ever made amerifat style biscuits and gravy
there's a recipe w/ almond flour from one of my low carb cookbooks I do from time to time, fockin beaut but you have to be able to handle garlic in the morning
the gravy is, fry about 6 chipolatas in butter, remove then add half an onion and a clove of garlic to the drippings, fry for about 5 mins then add cream, parsley and the chopped chipolatas once it's thickened
quite like it on steak too if I want to go full fat fuck
Fonzy is so cool lads
yeah I always liked him
for me, it's cLOUDDEAD
always enjoyed this re: cLOUDDEAD

Going on to other boards after being in /cric/ makes me realise how braindead everyone else on this website is. You can always tell when it's some Mexican/hue ESL spastic or a faggot American with a terrible sense of humour. Why is this community so based and intelligent?
Just need a 6/40 on my managerial accounting to get a BASED C- lads
cerebral sport attracts cerebral people simple as

I think it's because it demands a level of dedication you don't really see in other sports.
Aus test ranking 5
Eng test ranking 3
Aus ODI ranking 3
Eng ODI ranking 4
Aus T20 ranking 7
Eng T20 ranking 4
How is this even possible?
maybe they're quality varies for different formats?
is that hard to understand?
Well sure, in terms of test though it doesn't make any sense. I haven't watched any pajama recently but Australia is usually good at ODI and meh at T20. The fact they're are six teams ahead of them even in T20 is surprising. The ranking will change for test after the series and they will go ahead of England in test
there is some overlap of players but for all intents and purposes they are different teams
Did you strangle the cockatoos?
i've strangled a cock or two
I'd like to see more: players getting bowled without playing a shot
I'd like to see less: DRS
actually do miss the times where out meant out, I get that sometimes you get terrible decisions but all this waiting around for video replay instead of just enjoying the moment is starting to grate
For me, the women's Ashes should be at least three test matches.
Women's cricket > men's cricket
*poo dribbles out of anus*
What went wrong?
I probably unironically have an IQ of at least 140, but because I'm so unmotivated as well as the fact that I'm kind of socially retarded means that I've been unable to take advantage of it thus far. This is probably also part of the reason I enjoy cricket

Bitch Marsh in
August Ames, RIP
Literally never heard of her desu. Looks like a butterface anyway
She looked a lot cuter before the surgeries.
what should the punishment be for losing an ashes match? public lashings?
Send the losers to a remote island
Reminder there must always be more Marsh's in the squad than there are well-performing Marsh's
Tests are literally homebabby: the sport. Australia lost series to Pakistan and Sri Lanka away recently and it wasn't even surprising. We even lost a test to Bangladesh. Most teams look really good at home and awful away.
They're already playing in Australia

start failing when the subjects get hard in 3rd year
take leave of absence to work because you're poor
get stuck in graveyard shifts, become nocturnal
miss more social gatherings because you start work at 9pm
try to go back to uni after a year
get a full-time office job because you need to pay rent and eat
have no self worth
friends graduate and get real jobs
have less and less interesting things to talk about
you're not cool anymore
lose more friends
tiny things happening now make you very mad
come home from pub one night
tie noose out of extension cord
sit awake all night staring at it
mix it with some juice and make a punch
never drank it but I doubt it tbqh
It’ll still get you drunk
guess i should stop posting on Sup Forums then
who /undiesinthefridge/ here lads
so annoyed that png lost to hong kong
holy shit are you me? getting out of the night shifts at the servo was the best thing I ever did
Damn man that's deep
what is it there 25 loooooooooooool
Pretty much me but my parents paid for my uni so I never had to work. Still failed out though lel
I’d be your friend :)
What's worse; a namefag with no trip, or a tripfag with no name?
sounds like a song
well I'm about to graduate with a degree in economics and have literally no job offers which in a way is worse than failing out
What's considered more of the "Summer of /cric/",
the Australian Summer or English Summer?
Did you do any internships?
I find it really hard to communicate with Chinese in Uni. Most of them can’t comprehend the most basic sentences.
If you aren't rich and well connected internships (doing it for free) are usually beneficial for your resume.
It's a group assignment with 3 overseas students episode
Get up to present with 3 Chinese
They're struggling to say the most basic sentence
Trying to resist urge to do the whole thing yourself
I’m a pajeet. How the fuck do they even pass the IELTS? It’s beyond me. They also have this weird blank expression when you try and explain few things to them.
"Somehow" they all get D's
have tute with 18 people
14 asian, 4 white
group assignment comes up
all the whites go in the same group
Honestly have no issues with overseas students if they aren't autists or have good English.
Are you just studying here or live here?
TOPKEK. This actually happened to me.
Asians that can't speak English properly get the same marks as you for the presentation.
I know this information
I study here.
Faced this in the first semester.
Melbourne or Sydney?
How do you like it
POO IN LOO POO IN LOO LOLOLOLOLOLOL
Love it. Haven’t met a single rude Aussie DESU. You guys are quite friendly.
I do poo in loo
Do you have to work here also or are you rich?
dat casual racism
Literally the only m8s I made at uni:
a mexican soccer player
a Jewish dude
Mexican dude who loves cars
Sounds like the start of a joke
frippity frappity brippity brappity poo peeland is a fart. frippity frappity brippity brappity and they're not very smart
I don’t spend recklessly and I do have a lot of savings, so I guess you can say rich.
Must be pretty cozy then
already elaborating a hibi/cric/ thread ama
Cricket anime show when
For me, it's Mitchell Starc.
Yeah but I don’t have a lavish lifestyle though.
What ever happened to
Faulkner "The finisher"?
Phil '63' Hughes?
Damn! that looks comfy.
just had a refreshing Zooper Dooper lads
3rd world shitter impressed by sofas and windows
dropped out of engineering and wasted a lot of my parent's money, spent the next couple of years smoking weed and lazying around all day.
Except in the end I reverted to Islam and it helped a lot in sorting myself out.
Want to root Root tbqh
Based Howie. Excited for the big bash mate?
I'm on the highway to hype mate
For me, it's Rajiette
Would probably go fem-rajibul desu
Would love to bust a hot gunky load of semen into her ass
if you get my meaning
Rajibul on pooicide watch?
this tbqhwyrnl. Don't know what I'd do without /cric/
So who retires/pooicide watch by the end of this series for England?
I wonder if he knows he's a celebrity
Just trimmed up my pubes lads
Should have waxed
What do you lads think of my gimmick?
rude not to invite us over desu
I appreciate it m8 i really really do
Someone send this picture to RajiGOD
anyone who does will be doxed
BBL vs ipl?
For me, it's both.
my dear bros
BBL will get more people through the gates this year with only 10 rounds with 8 teams than A League will with 10 teams and 27 rounds
Is an inswinging ball smashing into off while the batsman goes for a leave the most aesthetic dismissal in the sport?
Has BBL ultimately improved the state of cricket in Australia? Or am I imagining things
it's a reddit dismissal
lads we have a new fan
thing that gets me about that one is how Clarke maintains his pose for ages after he's been bowled.
took me a while to realise hlw means hello
think i'm a brainlet lads
All time you at home..what do you read?
Shit sport, gotta say.
What's for tea tonight lads? iga roast chook for me again
Soy boy gang
I had spicy chicken nibbles. Pretty good.
At Parramatta right now, I’ll probably have a zinger
500th post for muscular and elite New Zealanders
That the wings and drumettes?
Based zinger lad
Make a new thread please
I work in a foodbank. We often get Chinese students from the local uni volunteering to help us sort food. They think digestive biscuits are a type of fish.
I hate having to use sign language to explain why digestives can't swim.
