Example text

You’re not dirty on your rival; indeed, I was genuinely happy that Blewey did really well. But, purely from my perspective, when he succeeded where I’d failed, it just underlined the question that kept nagging at me: why isn’t it happening for me? I thought I was as good a bat as Greg Blewett—the hundred in the one-dayer against England confirmed that in my mind—but he was able to make Test match hundreds and I wasn’t. I should have stopped to work out why that was so. When I was left out, I had my first experience of how the Australian team reacts when one of its own is omitted.

The identity of the ‘Yorkshire Snipper’ has never been revealed. I was speaking recently to a couple of members of the 2002 Yorkshire squad, Craig White and Darren Lehmann, and they told me that he had struck again. Considering there are only three players in the squad these days who were there back in 1995, I think it’s fair to say that the mystery is close to being solved. I met my wife while I was playing league cricket, in somewhat bizarre circumstances, which makes me think perhaps fate was lending a hand.

At the time, it must be remembered, Sri Lanka was hardly a world power in big-time cricket—their remarkable success in the 1996 World Cup was a little less than two years away—while both the Australians and the Pakistanis saw the games as a warm-up for the upcoming Test series. I guess in this sense, this made the matches a lot like the ones in Sharjah, where I needed to impress more than did my more established team-mates. Thus, we lost two of three matches in Sri Lanka, but then went on to win five of six one-day internationals in Pakistan, where we played in a tournament that also featured the home team and South Africa.
