You might be there for the end of the game if they dont play like they did in the 1st 2 tests against SA or it could be all over by day 3..
Good to see the ladies cricket getting more attention to.

It should be today and the coming days with you at cricket because you need to squence your thirst with some golden liquid.

Train to and from - so, yes Bazz - a few cleansing ales will be had.
Don't forget once you cross the border you are stepping back in time. They still spell beer with 4 X's up north:bag:

Well - good trivia question. Could a team that scored 600 in the first innings actually be beaten well in the same game. The Bangles certainly had a manic Monday.

Good weekend for the ladies in sport. Great cricket and brilliant Tennis final where I successfully predicted Williams to win:)
You even have the coming of Ladies AFL.
After Melbourne cup winner Michelle Payne ( more pain than payne) made her misogynist speech about equality I cant understand why the media made reports about two women jockeys falling and going to hospital.
In these enlightened times isn't a jockey a jockey

Pakistan have hammered fierce rivals India in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy at The Oval to claim their first major ODI tournament in a quarter of a century and complete an astonishing comeback in a tournament not even their most ardent supporters had expected them to win.

Pakistan romped to a 180-run victory on a beautiful Sunday in south London to win their first major title since the 1992 World Cup.

This is quite a win. No-one would have expected it.

Nice to see its not the same old teams in the winners box.
The Aussies bombed out probably because their minds were on how to squeeze more money out of the game.
While it was quite a win I will be more amazed when either Bangla or Zimbabwe are holding up a winners trophy:D
