All hail to the Karachi hotel pool with miracle batter healing powers

Alex Carey falling into the pool of the Mövenpick Karachi back in March during Australia’s tour of Pakistan

Alex Carey after being cured of his numerous batting ailments in the Mövenpick pool, starting from his 93 in Karachi

And now Carey has a maiden Test ton to boot, becoming the first Australian wicketkeeper to score a Test century in 9 years

3 things about that pool, which is now the Jordan River of International Cricket:

– I can only conclude England threw their entire top order into the pool before their recent series against Pakistan, resulting in a 3-0 sweep

– If things weren’t so volatile between India and Pakistan, Virat Kohli could check in under an alias, fall into the pool by ‘accident’, thus finding the key to ending his 3-year wait for a Test century


– It makes you wonder why Pat Cummins didn’t force David Warner into the pool at the same time Carey went in.
