In the latest test match between Hamas and israel, being played on the Gaza strip, a sticky wicket at the best of times, Hamas opened the bowling with a slow but steady rocket attack.
The Israeli opening batsmen have knocked up over 530 runs for the loss of no wickets and the umpires are attempting to force a declaration. Meanwhile, Hamas have set a world record by becoming the first fielding side to unsuccessfully appeal against the light.
The Israeli skipper is reported to have observed that there is little substance or consistency to the Hamas bowling and their batting lineup is pretty suspect. He says 'there are many more runs to be made here. Of course this is fantastic batting practice for us as we prepare for the real test when Iran dares to step onto the field of play. We are looking for a series whitewash.'
