what i meant by closing out a game with the bat was close games. the India world cup wasn't close at all...we have ash and rahim blocking deliveries for 20 mins just because they could. we had 5 wickets and 15 or so balls left when we finally knocked off the winning runs. it was hardly a thriller.
cardiff win also wasn't close (ie a thriller) because we had 5 wickets in hand and 6 balls to score 7 runs. had it come down to the last ball and needing 3+, it would have counted even if we had 10 wickets in hand.
I drop knowledge so heavy it leaves the world unbalanced, exterminating the spiritual force of all that challenge, I'm the lyrical apocalypse that crumbles the granite, replacing you as the dominant species on the planet.
