Natalie Portman

My secret shame is about to be revealed. This blog is actually moonlighting from my real gig, which is the running of

It's shameful because Natalie is not a cricketer. Not even a women's cricketer. She's never starred in a movie about cricket and in all likelihood knows as much about cricket as I know about the periodic table (its not a real table, right?).

But I've always dreamed about having crossover cricket and Natalie news. In fact, I mentioned as much when I gave The Commentary Position a punt on the other site.

And lo and behold...crossover news! Okay, this is pretty tenuous stuff but I'll take what I can get.

The blog Cricket With Balls (nice logo, sirs) is running a poll about Australia's swift exit from the tournament. The ultra positive option is - "Better than rubbing myself with butter and Natalie Portman".

Cricket, Natalie Portman, Butter...this is a great day.

She became friends with Stephen Fry on the set of V for Vendetta. He's a cricket enthusiast so may be he got her into it (or at least bored her with some of the rules). No? Ok.

Good point. I wonder if Hugo Weaving is also into cricket. Maybe they set up a trashcan as stumps and played a little game between setups :-P
