Well I, KP the magnificent we did it. KP we won the Ashes and gave the Aussies an almighty trouncing. I have to say though that I’m not impressed with the urn. It’s too small, it isn’t gold and it doesn’t have any diamonds on it. And as you can see from the picture above, you cannot even put any champagne in it. Maybe Lord’s should let me and Jess design a new bling version, so that next time we have a proper trophy to lift up?
Another sour point was Cooky getting the Man of the Series award. What did he do to justify getting that over me? I was the one who sacrificed the captaincy to get rid of Moores - without which none of this would have been possible. I was the one who scored a double century in a Test we actually won. And I was the man who got the key wicket of the whole series when I outfoxed Clarkey in Adelaide. Cooky scored a few runs granted, but compared to what I did at the Oval in 2005 it was small fry.
Anyway peeps, must dash as I have to get some shuteye before the T20 match tomorrow at the ground that should be re-named the KP Oval. I’ll talk to you about the IPL next time…
