Emotional Yellow, and Bloody Black

I just read two stories, one after the other, on cricinfo's Surfer. They came from rival sides Australia and New Zealand. One is a charming piece of news about a born charmer who once belonged to the yellow side, and the other a blood-and-guts story of survival of a fighter struggling to be back in the black side's belongings.

In context and content the two stories are as different as chalk and cheese, as Twenty20 and Tests, as Australia and New Zealand. But strangely each involves you just the same.
