Max needs a reversal of his humourectomy. But as he is obviously a better judge of what is funny than the majority of stall aficionados, I suggest that he compose something to compete with Andy. We can then have a poll and the loser has to eat Dwayne Leverock's jockstrap. That at least we would all find funny. Those who have actually answered the question of the title need to look up the word sarcasm in the dictionary.

Andy, it should now be patently obvious that satire is getting you nowhere. Time for an article that is devoid of humour, irony, sardony, satire and anything backhanded. A Christopher Martin-Jenkins-esque article might be just the ticket.

Awesome Andy! Keep it up... Satire at its best...

"Although if his eating is like his wicketkeeping, he'll need a bib" - had me in splits...

Are people not taking your sarcasm seriously? Prince is obviously more entertaining

If we compare Sehwag with Prince of Trinidad, it would yield some positive results..... Sehwag is far better than Prince(SA), comparison is not having any meaning......

ha ha , whose more "entertaning"= sehwag, by far acutally. Prince chips away at you without you noticing it but sehwag, he's no chipper, he's a sweet timer of the 156 leather. You have to earn Princ's wicket, Sehwag makes you pay for his wicket, thats the diffrence.

Andy Zaltzman
Andy Zaltzman was born in obscurity in 1974. He has been a sporadically-acclaimed stand-up comedian since 1999, and has appeared regularly on BBC Radio 4. He is currently one half of TimesOnline's hit satirical podcast The Bugle, alongside John Oliver. Zaltzman's love of cricket outshone his aptitude for the game by a humiliating margin. He once scored 6 in 75 minutes in an Under-15 match, and failed to hit a six between the ages of 9 and 23. He would have been ideally suited to Tests, had not a congenital defect left him unable to play the game to anything above genuine village standard. He writes the Confectionery Stall blog on Cricinfo.
