Cricketing Cliche 10

A game of cat and mouse.

Danish Kaneria, it will surely be written, played "a game of cat and mouse" with the Indian batsmen. This is a universal cliche, actually, but it is in the cricketing context that it bugs me the most. All sport, after all, is about cats and mice.

And if Kaneria succeeds in getting his mice, no doubt it will be written that he (cliche coming up) lured them to their doom.
