Mitchell Johnson showed “no mercy … to the exposed sparsely cooked flesh”


“Johnson sliced through South Africa the way a blade goes through a perfect fillet steak. He cut through the quivering hunk of meat, showing no mercy to the tendons and muscle fibres that once held it together and exposed sparsely cooked flesh.” 

— Firdose Moonda,  at espncricinfo.com, describing Australian Cricket fast bowler Mitchell Johnson.

(Cricket, fyi, is sometimes called “The Gentleman’s Game”)
