Just thought I would take a gander at the cricket. Not a normal event, but the PC is being particularly lethargic with some data processing.

So over to the running script on the BBC. Have they been hacked? Some wonderful phrasing going on. Definitely brought some sniggers to the office.

5th over: Eng 5-0
Don't want to worry England fans here, but Vaughan's facing Pollock with all the success of a man waving a wet piece of spaghetti at a passing pea. Another maiden, and various fielders trot past the skipper to offer a few kind words of advice.
10th over: Eng 28-1
Ah - Vaughan was just toying with us - he pulls Charl high over square leg for four, and then pushes him off the back foot wide of midwicket for another. That's right - he's hit two fours, both deliberately. Charl looks ashamed.
14th over: Eng 39-2
Single apiece to the batsman off Andrew Hall, and Pietersen gets a laser stare from all 11 members of the South African side. In case you're unaware of the history behind this particular showdown, Pietersen left his homeland for England because of the quota system - South African rules state that no team can field more than three massive egos in any one match.
I don't care what happens, this commentary is far better to read. :)

Nope - its been like this all competition - there have been some marvellous "debates" eg

1. how to remove a sticklebrick from your ear (many and varied solutions) and

2. look-a-likes - eg Ricky Ponting - an angry teddy-bear and Gillespie - Willem Defoe's Green Goblin in Spider-Man.

Shame about the way the game is going though :frown:

Pieterson's gone now .......... that'll really please the South Africans.

It all depends on Collingwood for my money!

Well we knew that from the start.

Why do English teams seem to delight in relying in convoluted mathematical possibilities to make it through to the next round? :(

I was so embarrassed that I had to keep changing TV channel.

If they are going to loose I would at least like to see them go out swinging ......... and I don't mean "car keys in the pot" either!

I am convinced that they are over burdened with info on how they should/shouldn't go about their batting.

MV HAS to go (from the one day side) ........................... surely?

They should also have a specialist "one day coach"?
