Something of a wag in the tail

19 04 2006

Allow me to indulge in a spot of ladblogging:

Jason Gillespie scored an amazing 201 not out as Australia declared on 4 for 581 shortly after lunch on day four of the second and final Test against Bangladesh in Chittagong.

Gillespie brought up the monumental milestone with a deft leg glance to the boundary as team-mates stood cheering in the dressing room. Clarke was the batsman at the other end and finished the innings unbeaten on 23. (ABC)

The ability of Australian cricketers to triumph in the face of adversity–Gillespie’s career is in a “rebuilding phase” after a disastrous Ashes last year–never ceases to amaze. Cheers, Dizzy!
