Australia’s Ashes Innings at Trent Bridge (Friday Funnies)

Election Analyst Antony Green from ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) is a great number cruncher during the Australian state and Federal elections. I have watched him over the years on the TV screen during election nights with his predictions and prophecies calling the elections. I  also  recollect  that the young Green having a great crown of hair to slowly loosing it over the years.

This time Green has analysed a different set of numbers with the cricket score of Ashes 2015. As cricket lovers know that the Ashes series between Australia and the mother island England is a highly fought battle.

2015 series is not looking good for the Aussies at the old enemies’ turf.  The first day of the fourth test match started at Trent Bridge yesterday the 6th of August.   Day one of the five day match turned out to be disastrous for the Aussies. In their first innings Aussies were all out for embarrassing 60 runs in 18.3 overs in ninety four minutes.

Analyst Green has brilliantly converted the first innings timeline of disaster to a single tweet.(See below ).

Shahid’s  fish mongering  song attracted many people and his  entertainment was captured on a video and posted on You tube  by Colin Miller a fellow passer-by.  The video was viewed by more than 8 million viewers and Shahid became  a sensationalist  online and sealed a recording deal.

“Hitting 8 million’  news reached BBC  and Shahid  was interviewed by a BBC London  entertainment anchor.   The father of 4  who arrived in England two years ago leaving his wife and children behind has hit his greener pastures!

The X-factor reject  recorded a video album with dancing ladies and shoal of fishy-friends.   The album has already hit 18 million viewers on You-tube.  Shahid  is  fondly referred as “1-pound-fish-man” may well be the next  “Gangnam -star”

Click below to view his official video album.


PS: The latest news says  the “one- pound- fish- man” has overstayed in England and will be deported to Pakistan soon. We wish him well to overcome the obstacle.
