"pick me" urges Gordon Brown

London, England. Prime Minister Gordon Brown has personally asked English cricket selectors to include him in the next eleven selected for the Second Test in Cape Town South Africa.

He says he can solve the middle order batting problem that has beset the national team for nigh on twenty years now. Brown has stated on a number of occasions that he feels if he was picked and allowed to bat at number five, he would score a welter of runs and add substance to an England first innnings score.

Of course the major flaw in his argument is that Mr Brown has never played cricket in his life, not even junior cricket, and that at 57, he is now far too old to particpate in international sport. However, that has not prevented the eternally optimistic leader from staking a claim with TCCB selectors and setting a bizarre precedent, even by his own quirky standards.

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
