Wish the Sri Lankan chap in our office was not on leave right now. Only other person at work who understands the game...

I got no one even remotely interested here. Its weird because they moan to buggery about football not having enough scoring but won't even entertain a cricket match. That said, all their sports are shit anyway so I'm not interested in them either. So naff em all.

What, you don't even like curling? All that exciting stuff with the brooms? There's really no pleasing some people!

Nice start to the ODI series.

So remind me again why we took Tremlett Rankin and Finn down under, ahead of Jordan....

If anybody else thinks they'll have naff all to do this morning other than drink tea and eat all the office biscuits, England are playing Sri Lanka in the deciding ODI at Edgbaston. Bets are on whether they''' finish before it starts pissing down and they all go out for a balti or Nick Knight's annoying voice and analysis makes me put my phone through my posh new telly. :(

I was looking forward to listening to a few hours of Yorks vs Nothants this morning, but I see we polished them off too quickly.
Guess it will have to be Eng instead. Be nice to see another Buttler special....

If JB was warned then technically he only has himself to blame.

That said, I don't like seeing this - Collingwood claiming the wicket vs NZ after a collision with a bowler was bad form on our part a few years ago.

It's just not cricket.
