Cricket
 
If you want to something to take your mind off the mind numbing cold (as I gather) and as a relief from all that winter sports bollocks, England are playing the WI in an ODI in Antigua. We'll have a chance as we're playing the WI. Depending on the outcome I might have couple of Jamaican patties for lunch. :thumb up:

At least in a ODI we can't lose by more than an innings.

I remember Somerset declaring after one over in the old B&H competition. Some jiggery pokery to get a more favourable tie in the next round IIRC.

Anyway.... Eng spinners doing well, Jordan having an off day.

So was it Jamaican patty time, or did that latest poor effort drive you to drink ?:confused:

I come in peace... (writing from the Cayman Islands, British West Indies)

How in God's name could England lose from such a strong position? The best thing the England cricket team could do to secure its future might be to give Sammy a job over there and a UK Passport. He does what Pietersen was supposed to do!

We're back at it again, it'll be rubbish but even as rubbish its a million times more exciting than that icing hockey crap.

...or one could just follow the more enthralling denouement of the SA vs Aus test, with the added bonus of not watching Eng fluff their lines for the umpteenth time.;)

We have sometime before the football World Cup so why not watch some cricket. England are playing Sri Lanka in a ODI. SL have a target of 259 to get. Run chase is on now.

Good start from Jimmy, striking with his fifth delivery.

What do you reckon to Jordan's cameo ? A touch of the Darren Sammy....

I have a posh new 42" tv in my office courtesy of Best Buy's Victoria Day sale so I won't have monopolize the boardroom when World Cup is on. It's coming in handy for the cricket too. :thumbup: Although I wished I lived int he old days when drinking in the morning at work wasn't bad for you. :thumbdown:
