Hey there,

I'm the best man for my mates wedding, and he is very much into cricket. I want to make a few gags during my speech comparing married life to cricket. The things I can think of are probably pretty lame (im not really into cricket myself), but I'm wondering if any funnymen on here could help me out?

Stuff like:

- batting above his average with his wife
- bigger chucker than muri (buck's night)
- can remove the cover from his bat now that he's married

etc.

Any funny stuff appreciated! The dirtier the better!

every time he has an argumeent with his partnerif he is wrong he must spend more time at the nets and if she is wrong she must spend time in the garden... which explains his improving batting average and the state of the garden.

'Used to pay a lot of attention to Fine leg - known for the odd glance or two'

'Likes to pull balls when a bit short'

'Likes the wicket young and green for some good bounce'

'Tightens his grip, and makes a firm confident stroke. He checks his partner, who nods, and they go for a quick one.'



Come on, man, use your imagination - ther's a million out there! '

If you are referring to Muralitharan, make sure you say 'Murali' not Muri.

Wife should watch out for the silly point!

Wife's hens night to be a beer wench at the G getting the boys a pair of jugs every time the cherry is knocked up the ground.

When the covers come off...if there's grass on the wicket, fine to play cricket!

If you want to have a memorable speech, say you shagged with the bride while the groom was watching cricket. Depending on when the wedding is, you could actually go through with it and do her during the New Zealand test. (not like Australia will lose anyway)

Or you can stick to lame bumper-sticker jokes and get a few sympathy chuckles. Your call, really.

Dear Bride

Congratulations on finding a guy who has the best ball control of any bowler in the state.

From Groom
