Mr Ponting and Mr Flintoff

Further to my post a couple of hours ago about the Almanack’s report of England versus Australia, maybe Cricinfo should start calling all the players Mr. Here’s how it might sound (from my Bulletin yesterday)

Mr Khan arrived at the crease with Pakistan on 2 for 1, joining Mr Hafeez who was bristling with aggression, smashing Mr Lewis for an enourmous six over midwicket. But Mr Hafeez failed to respond to Mr Khan’s call for a quick single and was largely outdone by a superb piece of fielding from Mr Strauss at cover, whose throw while diving at full stretch left him stranded.

Sounds good to me!
