Level Pegging.

Love it when the teams get the same totals in the first innings. Doesn’t happen too often. Catching up with the ENG v NZ 2nd Test at Headingley intermittently via the Chinese mobile on BBC.COM. What a test. Another nailbiter?

To see Cook become the leading English run scorer and Anderson, the leading English Wicket taker in the very same test match is unprecedented. Quite something. In recent history can’t have happened frequently at all.

I will be trying to stream the match later. C’mon England.

355 Strauss KP

Reggae in my ears. Rastas and Old sea dogs on the pontoons. Island girls with smiles. Caribbean sunshine and blue seas. Hours away from our Transatlantic crossing. Picking up news on the interweb about English cricket.

What a shower. Boycott, he who never tweeted and lambasted those who did, is taking to the platform to Hashtag his desire to see KP back in the ENG team.

355. That is the bottom line right now.

Yes, KP should have been playing for Surrey this time last year, but the question the selectors have to ask themselves are :

1. Are we really good enough without him?
2. Is 34 really over the hill?
3. Is it totally impossible for differences to be ironed out?

John Lennon knew Yoko was for him when he saw her work of art ‘YES’. In Ben Kingsley (Sexy Beast) manner, NO NO NO, would do me and about half a million ENG cricket fans just fine.

Gobsmacked

What can I say? I’m as far removed as can be from the world of cricket, but just about manage to get news through the internet of what the hell is going on in AUS and NZ. I did not think performances could get any worse than being beaten in under 15 overs by NZ, but evidently I’m wrong. Poor old Root posts 121, the team scramble above 300, and then lose by 9 wickets. Gobsmacked.
