2-1 ENG v WI

Farewell Blowers, you will be missed so.

Flicked on Sky to see the Don of Cricket Commentators doing a lap of honour. Rightly so. 45 years is a huge achievement and I for one will miss his creamy tones.

Well done Jimmy on taking 500 test wickets. Great to cap it with the name on the honours board for 7-42 in the second innings.

Stokes was the man who did the damage initially (6-22) and held his nerve during the batting too. It would be truly fantastic to see him in action in The Ashes come Boxing Day. All rounders like him do not come along that often.

A small shame the second test was not a little more of a nail-biter. I will forever remember listening to Hope and Chase (names as representative in their field as Bernie Madoff was in his) hold their nerve. Dad and I listened to some groovy Calypso commentary under a flapping awning in the Northern Spanish sun a few weeks ago.

A good series but let us not forget the poor souls suffering from the damage Hurricane Irma has caused in the Caribbean.
