Cricketing Cliche 18

No praise can be too high for ...

Pakistan deserve (cliche here) the highest praise, and many people will no doubt write tomorrow that "no praise can be too high" for Kamran Akmal, for the manner in which he helped Pakistan save the Test. Any writer who writes this, frankly, is just being lazy. He can't be bothered to come up with the words that would do justice to whatever he's praising, and that is a disservice to his readers. He is (universal cliche) taking the easy way out, and not (one more) putting in the hard yards.
