The Strauss Tapes Part XIX

Fred and BrettClick

“Right gentlemen, take a seat. Belly – go and get Swanny will you? If he’s phone-flirting with Gabby Logan again, tell them him to hurry up and get in here.

You’ve heard the news about the quickie then? Not Harmy, Binga. Fred’s been on the phone commiserating like it’s Edgbaston all over again. What did he say Fred? It’s just that Mark Nicholas has been on to me, as he’s worried now Binga may be on the market – name recognition in Kolkata or something seemed to be bothering him.

To business. First let’s look at the bowling plans.

Hughes – Dead straight and bounce him;

Katich – No width and short;

Punter – Bumpers at the body.

It goes on like this, but I think you get the picture.

Now to the batters:

I’m going to defend early then look to put the bad ball away;

Cookie – See off the new ball, then look to accelerate;

Ravi – Don’t give it away early, then look to up your strike rate.

It goes on like this, but I think you get the picture.

Right, everyone know what time nets are tomorrow? Don’t be late, especially you Belly, as you’re in my net loading the bowling machine.”
