All right then, I will.

England are looking solid so far!

And actually, zero or one wickets to fall today and there's a genuine chance of getting close to victory on Day 5.

Cheers, ak47beano!

Let's face it; it was never going to happen, and it still isn't going to happen.

Note that I only said a chance of GETTING CLOSE. I never said a chance of WINNING.

But there is still only 1 wicket down, so my confidence in only losing narrowly remains undimmed!

Yeah some impressive footwork and shot selection from Anderson imagine the damage he could do if he actually made contact with the ball.

Well his trousers have made contact that's a start :D

Jimmy only gave his wicket away because it was looking too easy, and wanted to maintain the perception that there was some form of challenge to us.

Was that Trott's excuse.

Never mind, here comes Ian Bell. Always a man you want in a crisis.

If I needed someone to detonate nuclear charges on an asteroid approaching and threatening to destroy earth, knowing that it would lead to certain death for the individual involved, I'd call up Bell as part of the team. Although he'd probably attach them to the wrong asteroid.

All this talk of cricket reminds me that this year I really must book Greenwich Park cricket pitch this Summer for the inaugural Me Select XI vs Brother Select XI cricketing grudge matches.

This is proper cricket, Nickachu! Bell has 25 from 73 and Colly has 20 from 95.

There's nothing better than the perfect forward defence.

That's actually a more important role than the number 11 batsman though, assuming you don't let him bowl either.

OBO-runningjokecontributionoftheday-on TMS. Running joke is about signs, indications etc. of how we are going to win this, most recent one being

Quote:
"I'm looking out of my office window in Sheffield in a South Easterly direction and I can see on the horizon a mass of land of approximately 120,000 square miles, high in natural resources (most notably oil) with what appears to be a population in the region of 2.85m (but no gingers)... If that's not Oman I don't know what is."

There's a junction outside my flat. In the middle of it is a piece of metal attached to a pole, advising drivers where each road will take them. I think it could be a sign.

193 needed off 90 balls. I don't think we're going to make it. We need Bell to get injured and bring Nickachu on as his runner.

He needs to hog the strike for ther est of the innings. If I catch him doing a Kallis and taking a single off the first ball of each over I'll have words!

That said, he turned down a single on the first ball of the last over, so he might be doing things correctly.

I'll give him the benefit of the doubt as he's a Villa fan.

Not out.

I particularly enjoyed the Saffer fielder kneeing Smith in the head though.
