Erdogan cant bowl (can he throw?)

The man behind the screen usually comes off as pitiful when the spotlight lights up the (dark) spots.

In the ICC T20 World Cup ongoing in Bangladesh here is an excerpt from the Guardian live commentary during the India-Australia match which just got over:


Geoff Lemon (commentator for the Guardian) writes: So may I enquire who's out there, following along in the graveyard hours of Australia, the sunset hours of India, or the high-street hours of the United Kingdom? Or in other nooks and corners around the world where cricketing enthusiasts go to hide? Drop me a line via geoff.lemon.casual@theguardian.com, on any subject that stirs your gravy.

An interesting response below:  Zachary Taylor is as confused as Shaun Pollock with a Duckworth-Lewis table. 

"Following from Istanbul, where no one is quite sure what time of day it is. 

You see, daylight savings was supposed to begin last night, but there's an election on for today, and the government announced out of nowhere that the spring forward would be put off until tomorrow (presumably to increase confusion). 

The problem is, everyone's cellphones and computers went ahead with the time change regardless. It appears no one in the government thought to inform the telecom companies. So there it is. Maybe it's 4:30 pm right now, or maybe it's in fact 3:30."
