One-hit wonders the best since Milli Vanilli

WE’RE big fans of the one-hit wonder at Cricki Leaks.

My Sharona is on loop in the Fiat 500 and the odd Billy Ray Cyrus Achy Breaky Heart poster may be found on the wall at home in Ecuador.

So, it’ll come as no surprise Cricki Leaks’ love for big songs performed by bands that quickly fade away into obscurity has resulted an ever-growing fondness for two up-and-coming bats, James Ryan and Nedward Wright.

Ryan smashed 128 not out against Waratahs in the opening round of the Orange District Cricket Association season, but has failed to nudge 20 in five at bats since.

Wright has a similarly impressive one-wonder record.

Becoming the highest scoring Wright for CYMS in first grade with a walloping 92 versus Tahs, Neddie hasn’t troubled the scorers much since, amassing a further five runs in four innings for the green and golds’ top grade outfit.

Cricki Leaks is the first to admit there’s plenty of cricket to be played this summer.

And no doubt these two will score more runs.

But, at least for the time being, Ryan and Wright form our favourite double act since Milli Vanilli.

Centrals split

THINK Shane Watson and Michael Clarke have a frosty relationship?

They’ve got nothing on two Centrals stars.

Known to be regulars at the all-you-can-eat Pizza Hut as well as Subway foot-long tragics after Tuesday night training, Barney Davis and Dan Sandford - affectionately known as ‘Barnford’ by clubmates - have had a falling out.

Moments before the pasta bar opened for dinner, Sandford sent down a venomous bouncer that hit Davis on the thumb at training.

Narrowly avoiding amputation via a lengthy surgery, the thumb war has resulted in a mega split with Davis fleeing to his native north island in New Zealand.

We’ll be lucky to see Davis bowl again this season.

Rumour has it Sandford is a shadow of his former self too.

Fast-food chains Orange wide are also livid at the split.
