    I love the big test series.

    I always listen to the BBC radio commentary which is so great also reminds me of my Dad listening when I was a kid. Ashes starts today ;-)

    Although I not interested,

    surely the only TRUE sport these days is cricket. All others have become excessively commercialised, except perhaps such things as bowls. What say you?

    The bowler sent down a good ball

    which caught the batsman on the pads. "Owwzat!" shouted the bowler "Out", said the umpire, raising his finger. "I'll have you know, my good man," said the noble batsman "that I am Sir Roland Smythe- Montmorency.'" "In that case," said the umpire "I'm afraid you're both out."

    The game is great but cricket

    for me goes much deeper than just the game. Its about the whole experience. To go to the match is a complete day out. Its about having a drink and a walk about and chatting to people who love the game as much as you do. Its about fabulous commentaries. Great simply sitting...

    The greatest spinner of all time, the greatest bowler of all time, one of Widen's 5 cricketers of the century. Seven hundred and eight test wickets. almost three hundred ODI wickets, and the odd run or two! Forget his off the field misdemeanours, and the fact that he battered...

    Watch out for Pakistan. They're a dangerous side when they are confident, Can destroy any opposition on their day, Being led by the aggressive Afridi and his attitude could guide them into glory. I think Pakistan a team to consider this time around.

    Sir Viv

    Sir Viv Richards for me is the best of the best. At least during my lifetime I hasten to add. The manner in which he used to walk to the wicket swinging his bat was arrogance (in the best sense) and the confidence that he had. I wonder what treats we have had if the T20 version...
