Sri Lanka currently 192-1 off 30 overs. Nice work.
amazing how the world cup takes over everything.
did you know l(l)eyton hewitt won queens?
I watched most of the Roddick-Blake semi and then some of the final highlights.
Henman fucking it up in the semi-final on the radio.
I couldn't really give a toss about Wimbledon though.
It means we're doing badly doesn't it? That in 180 balls bowled we've managed to take out one wicket while the Sri-Lankans have run between the two bits of wood 192 times?
desire to take sport down to its basic components, yes, you're essentially correct.
I'm not off to listen to someone use some sanded wood to hit some skin stretched over some metal tubs whilst another fellow strokes some form of 'strings' over a hollow wooden box.
Harmison's figures are brilliant considering. Our back-up one-day players just aren't up to it at the moment.
that means we've won, right?
Things could get close...
at the amount of overs left, and the current run rate, it wont happen.
England could easily get 250 odd at this rate though. Too late though, they'll pay for their shoddy bowling
the run-rate would go up as the number of overs drop.
Pietersen is the key, if he stays in it will be close.
getting out though. That was a nice little partnership.
Still Flintoff and Botham to bat......oops, I mean Bresnan and Plunkett.
and I keep hearing screams through the window. I mean, it SOUNDS good, but then it's hard to tell. Bloody sold out.
thats it now
getting a bit close...
I was just trying to build a bit of dramatic tension!
All over now.
