Due to work on my flat I was up early enough to see the Australia v Pakistan 2020 game.
I would never usually get up before 10 for limited overs, I’m not an animal.
This time I’m glad I did.
Not only did I hear James Brayshaw, aka JB, call Dirk, Dirty Dirk, I also saw Dirk bowl the senond last over for 2 runs and take a wicket.
I think that gave me an emotional orgasm.
I was pushing the Dirk bandwagon when there was no bandwagon, so to see him today, hirsute and magnificent, was almost too much to handle.
This bearded man is a marvel, and were it physically possible I would offer to have his babies.
Even in his interview he made me proud, while Healy was asking his usual sports science questions, Dirk just said I just bowled short and then at the stumps.
This is our cricket Renaissance man, and to see him finally end up where he belongs makes me so very fucken happy.
Well played my friend, well played.
