Re: English Cricket

Given the fact that the other four batsmen above him in the all time test runs list are middle order batsmen and so never had to face the new ball in every single innings, highlights Cooks class.

As I said, a proper test match, lasted until the last hour, great batting, magic balls, this game had everything.

Re: English Cricket

Notice there are some 'obscure' cricket matches on obscure channels coming up:

Paktia Panthers v Kandahar Knights FREESPORTS 12:45pm Aghanistani 20/20 - not being played in Afghanistan for some reason ....

Barbados v USA BT SPORTS ESPN 7pm 50 over match - the whole of the US will be gripped by that one !

oh and Sri Lanka v England SKY SPORTS 5:30am tomorrow -probably give that one a miss, there are limits

Re: English Cricket

Actually watching the ground staff running on, trying to cover the whole playing area with those huge sheets in the howling winds and monsoon rains is quite good fun.
