Oh Bumble

I follow David “Bumble” Lloyd, the former player and coach of England cricket team and now a full time commentator, on twitter. After the India v WI “duper” 8 game today, he tweeted emphatically,

“India in trouble against short ball ”

Of course, its been common knowledge for a while that Indian batsmen (especially the current lot of younger players) are susceptible to sustained, fast, short pitched bowling. So, i congratulated Bumble on his detective skills as,

“No shit, Sherlock!”

To which, Bumble duly responded as such.

I am flabbergasted. I thought the British are masters of sarcasm and my sarcasm was lost on one of their very own!
