No boxing today but plenty of CRICKET.
I’ll be spending the afternoon (14:30 start) in The Long Room at historic St. Georges Park with a view not too dissimilar to the one on the left.
It’s The Black Caps in the third and final T20i, with the teams currently tied at one match apiece we should be in for an entertaining game.
One advantage of The Long Room is that it is far from that infernal brass band who’s badly played 10 song repertoire (which gets played over and over) drives most of us to distraction. The band were actually glorified by Australia’s Ch9 commentary team this morning, they have obviously never spent an hour never mind a full day’s play within earshot of them!
I’ve always enjoyed watching Sangakkara, I always knew he was good but not this good, that’s some record among some of the finest ever! He’s also only the 11th batsman to pass 10,000 runs, the others being Kallis, Border, S Waugh, Chanderpaul, Jayawardene and of course Sunil Gavaskar (no English?)
What’s with the ‘antisocial behaviour’ notice, not in OZ surely?
