FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SRI LANKAN MURALI MIGHT HAVE BROKEN TEST CRICKET RECORD.
BUT AUSSIE WARNEY HAS "THE BIGGEST BALLS OF THEM ALL" CLAIMS SONG.
Hong Kong, December 4, 2007: Though Sri Lankan spinner Muttiah Muralitharan yesterday [December 3, 2007] surpassed Australia's now-retired cricketing icon Shane Warne's record tally of 708 to become test cricket's most successful bowler,"Warney" has, according to a new song, "the biggest balls of them all."
Written and produced by Hans Ebert, Chairman and CEO of Hong Kong-based multi-media company We-Enhance and singer-songwriter and producer Cheryl Webb, owner of Sydney's Phoenix Audio, the song is a jolly legs-up, arse-down pub-a-long that is a musical salute to "Warney " who was - and still - known for his exploits on and off the field.
"Hans and I have known each for years and working long-distance has always been no problem," says Webb. "He came up with the idea, sent me the lyrics, I got things going over at this end, and, within a few days we had the song."
Sung by Jiminy and backed by The Wikepedia Crikits, the plans are for the track to have an accompanying video and a few different versions of the song.
Adds Webb, "Though Shane Warne is the greatest spin bowler Australia has produced and has a massive following Down Under, he's just as well-known in the UK and other cricketing jurisdictions in the world. So, we will definitely will be 'reaching out' to sponsors, media partners and crickets fans around the world with this song ."
Ironically, Ebert, despite the name, was born in Sri Lanka. Asked how he felt about writing a track for Warne instead of Murali, he was quite diplomatic in his answer: "First of all, I have not been back to Sri Lanka in years. Secondly, though Murali has broken Warne's record, there's no getting away from the fact that the Aussie will always be known as the king of spin. And, yes, he bowled some of the greatest balls of them all. To do that, one needed big balls. Warney had them. Still has."
