Cricket Psalm 23

1 The Lord is Lord Sheppard; I shall not want.

2  He maketh spectators to lie down on green pastures: he removeth still waters with the Super Sopper.

3  He restoreth my DRS reviews at 80 overs: he leadeth me in the Redpaths of righteousness for his name's sake.

4  Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil dhoosras: for thou art with me; thy Rod Marsh and thy Joe Hardstaff they comfort me.

5  Thou preparest a wicket before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest Travis Head with a baggy green cap; my World Cup run rate is 8 an over.

6  Surely goodness and mercy shall never make me follow on all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the stands of Lords for ever.
