Oh swinger of bat! Oh clubber of sixes,
You who brings work to local roof tile fixers,
Whether through off or through on you punish the wides
And anything short is hooked away to the sides.
You never let up, the glum bowler discovers,
Smashing him calmly away through the covers,
And we watch you intently up on the big screen
And cheer as you clobber big-six eighteen.
Eoin Morgan, England ODI cricket captain and ruthless slayer of Afghan bowlers.
