Mailing it in

I follow a lot of cricket and have become quite good at reading between the lines of scorecards. So when I open a "report" that describes how the day's play progressed, I am looking for something that enlightens me beyond what a casual perusal of the scorecard will give.

Reports like this one are all over the place. They are utterly useless and do not provide any new information or insight into the day's proceedings. Sadly this is the norm rather than the exception.

A monkey with access to a scorecard could have written this article. Did it?
