Shourov, Brian and Abhik

The year 1984 was a tough one by the high standards of the Australian cricket team.  As well as a string of losses home and away against the West Indies, they lost their captain and were on the verge of losing their dignity, and perhaps hope for the future.  Enter a fiery red-headed fast bowler from Ipswich.

But was Craig McDermott really the messiah or a very naughty boy ?  As Brian is overwhelmed with gushing admiration and Abhik manages to offend everyone from Sri Lankan cricket fans to Rodney Hogg, Shourov keeps some sense in the discussion by asking whether waiting for a saviour really is that good for either party involved.
