The Greatest Cricketer!


I am the greatest cricket in the world,
Six foot six and handsome to cricketing boot.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I score double centuries before lunch
And not a hair out of place.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I swing the ball,
I bowl the doorsa, the Chinaman and bouncers too,
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I have never dropped a catch,
I have fielded at slip, short leg and boundary too.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I have score a century and
Taken ten wickets in the same match too.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I have done it all,
The highest test score, the fastest century too,
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I’ve taught the best,
Lara, Flintoff, Tendukar, McGarth and Brett Lee too.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I’ve played against the greats,
W.G. Grace, Lynwood, Imran, Wasim and Fiery Fred too.
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

I’ve played at all the best grounds,
The Lords, the Oval, Trent Bridge and Albert Park too,
I am the greatest cricketer in the world,
Better than you!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
