Ed Smith – ‘wordsmith’ – as he is affectionately called by Geoffrey Boycott (he is a great writer, and also a superb commentator) has the job. Select away Sir!
Interesting to see Sri Lanka and the Windies cricket Boards opted for Talk Sport. Money talks.
It was a shame the English bowlers could not pick up the last three wickets to win the 2nd Test match down in New Zealand. When de Grandhomme holed out for 45, I thought we had a real chance, but we lacked penetration and there were a few essential catches which went down. Oh well. A very long winter without a single test match victory. Hard for a supporter, but that is what being a fan is all about. You take the rough with the smooth!
Philander finished with figures of 6-21 as the Aussies crumbled to South Africa. Given what has been going on, it is not all that surprising. A huge victory margin though – 492 runs!
