the banished king and a destroyed pauper

Australia - The Commonwealth Bank and Cricket Australia, today announced the Bank will become the major sponsor of the world’s leading one-day cricket team and best one-day competition for the next three years.
The one-day competition will be known as the ‘Commonwealth Bank Series’ and the Australian team known as the ‘Commonwealth Bank one-day international team’.
2nd November - Media Release ( Commonwealth Bank)
  • Pakistan - With the Captain suspended, fast bowlers banned, the Vice captain refusing to be a dummy captain, fringe bowlers ineligible because of suspect actions, some players injured and others due to be dropped shortly, its probably only a matter of time before the Pakistan XI resembles a Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited International XI at some point.
So when do we get to see the mouthwatering spine-tingling match-up between Commonwealth Bank One day International All stars XI and Zarai Taraqiati Bank Limited One Day International All Stars XI ?
[CBODIASXI vs ZTBLODIASXI for short]

Good afternoon!

My name is Denis. To me of 30 years. 6 years ago in my life there was a computer, there was also an
Internet. It was, as a window in other world. To you probably it is clear, as, grown in small Russian
small town the most remote corners of a planet suddenly became accessible to the person. Let and
virtually, but I could visit them. Even with the wife has got acquainted owing to the Internet. At us good family. But the network had also other side - shopping. I have started to use auctions and the Internet shops.
First, it is simple because it interestingly and unusually. Shops of the world in a flash became such
relatives... Gradually, with each month, more increasing and more time spent to networks. When the family
has paid attention that the earned money too quickly come to an end, they have sounded the alarm. By
then, I already daily spent to networks for 7 hours. Not enough time spent with family, we any more
Not enough time spent with family, we had not a rest any more together on days off, did not go in holiday. After that me have allocated to the psychologist on rates of rehabilitation. Have deprived with money and have limited to the Internet 1 hour per day. Such quantity of time suffices only on e-mail and the news, any shopping.
Now in our family all we is normalized, going to go first time to travel together. The Christmas
conterminous with anniversary of our wedding, then birthday of the wife and mine is fast. It would be
desirable to do gifts. But money for this purpose is not present. Certainly I understand, that the best gift this well-being in family, but it would be desirable something essential. In fact each person can
get in my situation.
Now I do not ask from you money. If you wish to support take advantage of the reference of the partner

What's this post from Dennis?


Yeah - Crazy life these daysin Pakistan cricket...

though commonwealth australia?
thats just stupid.

We're going to have a real tough time in the next couple of months against the West Indies and South Africa.

Batting is going well, though bowling is toothless. Shabbir Ahmed, as you know, is returning from his ban. LEts hope he doesn't get called for throwing again. I think he was pretty good while he lasted.
