On the Verge of a Crisis

The cartoon riots might be nothing compared to the reaction generated by Australian cricket players Matthew Hayden and Jason Gillespie, if they fulfil promises they made.

The Bangladesh port city of Chittagong could be in for a shock in the coming days if Jason Gillespie and Matthew Hayden are true to their word.

 

The pair made bold claims of a nude run if the tailender somehow managed to score a double century in the second Test against Bangladesh.

 

He has and Gillespie is now not so sure that it is such a hot idea.

 

“Matty Hayden reckons if I got to 200 he would do a nude lap of the oval,” Gillespie said.

 

“I don’t know if he will actually do it – maybe at the end of the game.

 

“The problem is I was getting a massage last night by Lucy our (team) masseuse, and she mentioned 200. I said, “I am 102”, there is no way I’d get it. I mentioned I would do a nude lap too, if I got there.

 

“I don’t know about that one, being in a Muslim country. I don’t know if it would be perceived right.”

You can say that again.

 

By the way, this is a picture of Jason Gillespie. I think I will also riot if he runs the nude lap.

 

Update: Tim puts Gillespie’s batting effort into perspective.
