Actually, when the Big Bird dropped out of the scene, I heaved a big sigh of relief. Then came along Curtley Ambrose.....

I'd love to see Ireland on top form on Tuesday. With the series lost they might relax enough to give England something to think about..Looking forward to the Pakistan series which might give a more balanced view of where England are and a much tougher game than Ireland managed..

Mike and Cassie. Forgive me if you know already or have heard it before but check out Radio 4 extra today and 'Adrian Arlington- The Amazing Test Match Crime.' Think you'll enjoy it.  ;D

Thanks so much Zoon, 6pm tonight. Being a BBC hater, I never give them house room - except for the great game of course. I'll be tuning in and thanks very much.

And big Courtney too - what a duo - fabulous I'll never forget their last session as a duo at the Oval. We were in the hall of the Gods that day!

Remember that. By then the deadly duo were hard pressed to get above the low 80s, but the on screen description kept saying ‘right arm fast’. Craig White was in the high 80s, touching 90, but the description was ‘right arm fast-medium’. The WI supporting cast then was a far cry from the 1980s.

I thought the Radio 4 play was a lovely listen, narrated by the inimitable 'Jonners'..The voice artists doing Henry Blofeld and the rest were excellent..A rare jewel in the output..
