I have often wondered when cycling past whether that place just north of East Hanningfield was the cricket bat mob, but never remembered to look them up later. I have now confirmed that they are.  :thumbsup:

It's ironic.  For the first time for ages, we field an Ashes team all of whom were born in England.  Result - 4-0 thrashing.  Introduce a South African for the one-dayers and "we" win!  Still feels good, though!

Very odd, indeed - but he doesn't chuck it, as far as I can tell.

I don't always follow the ODIs, but did this time after the Ashes let down - a good finish to the series in the new Perth stadium .

The Kiwis must be cock o hoop.  But perhaps secretly slightly disappointed not to have restricted England to a world record low score from that position.

Looking better in NZ (not hard I suppose), though I wonder what continues to be up with Cook who is still struggling - av of 5.75 runs over 4 innings.

First day of the 2018 County Championship (from TG): 

‘At Old Trafford, two men in tracksuits slush across the outfield, the scoreboard shows Lancashire’s official partners and a few hardy souls really are sitting out under The Point... I love the sheer eccentricity of it, the not-giving-a-damn-ness, the tenacity, the stubborn-ness’

Gosh.  We had a national side playing in Llandysul today.  Wales under 15 girls v Sir Gar (Carmarthenshire) under 13 girls.  Seems a bit of an unfair match.  No idea of the result.
Mrs B, Megan the Border Terrier and I watched Wales warming up the bowlers for a while and I was astonished to find that they were the under 15s.  I'd guessed they were at least the under 19s.

Shame the last 3 Pakistani wickets put on almost 100 runs. Even so, quite a good day so far for England.

After our day out, I thought I'd settle down with a cuppa and listen to the last hour or so of the test match.

Oh.

Commentator's curse, last man comes on, needing something like 10 runs from 12 balls, and they call England to win it.

Bowled LBW with 6 runs required.
