Englishmen everywhere sigh a familiar sigh of despair and defeat as Yuvraj Singh not only makes Kevin Pietersen look like an even bigger tit than he already was but then drizzles on the humiliation like Nigella Lawson knowingly pouring chocolate sauce over a giant knob-shaped cake:
"When I got up in the morning, I read the paper, and I said 'what does this [pie-chucker] mean?' So I asked a few people there what it meant, and they said it meant a 'useless kind of bowler'. It shows KP hates getting out to me. Well, a useless bowler getting him out many times would be because of useless batting, I'd say! But that's okay."
It's always so easy to praise your opponent when you've rubbed his face in the shit, but Yuvraj reveals a bit of sportsmanship as well as a bit of grit:
"He's a phenomenal player and batted like a champion. He's got 15 hundreds in 40-odd matches - that's phenomenal. But he tried to get under my skin in the last game and that brought out the best in me. I tried the same and it brought out the best in him. So it's good competition in the field. But I don't have a habit of washing dirty linen in the open, in public. But I like the name, eh?"
According to Vic Marks on TMS this morning, Yuvraj strode into the press conference bold as brass and announced: "Here comes the pie chucker!" - then went out the next day and clubbed England for a cheeky 86 off 93.
KP must do better, not only losing the matches but also the mind-games.
