Bulgarian cricket stops play

Will Luke

A Bulgarian travel blog has an interesting (albeit rather confusing) report on the poor state of the country's pitches which it blames on the insect of the same name. At least, we think that is the case. Have a read and leave your thoughts in the comments below.

The current between Pakistan and Newzaland series is coming . . . . if we see the team on the paper then Pakistan is being a strong side as compare to newzaland in batting as well as in bolling but if we see the fielding then Zewzaland is very well. Pakistan have Abdul Razaq, Shahid Afridi, Shoib Malik as great allrounder. Pakistan should open with Kamran and Sulman Butt then order should be this Kamran, Butt, Younus khan, M.Yousuf,Malik, Umer Akaml,Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razzaq, Umer Gull/, Saeed Ajmal, and M.Amer.

Bulgaria plays on an artificial surface, or at least they did two seasons ago.

The article clearly has nothing to do with the game cricket, the author is simply including many references to the game as puns.

Confusing to say the least, but I'm pretty sure that this article has absolutely nothing to do with cricket fields, just field crickets!

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
