I thought 342 would be enough in the 2nd ODI. Evidently not. Well played Bavuma. Good to watch a lot of the match in Bloemfontein. Peachy weather. 2-0. Done deal. Butler’s 94* was good to watch. Shame Archer wasn’t playing in the 2nd game, but he went for 81 runs in his comeback match. From TMS I learnt that he has 6 dogs he walks in Brighton. Good chat about Steve Smith playing down in Sussex for 3 matches this coming Summer and the fact that our Jofra will be sending a few down in the nets.
From the Mankad in the Women’s Cricket to over 500 runs scored in a day in the Men’s Cricket, there were some good soundbites on the TMS broadcast; not least JA’s obvious glee at ENG beating IND in AUS in the white ball. I enjoyed listening to the BS interview. A loss is a loss and a win is a win. Play golf. Don’t wear socks. To 2023. The tests in NZ will be keenly followed.
