Apparently right now cricket is more popular than football.
Not for long with days like this. Bah. Bloody weather. (Just wait till Monday when all the new fairweather fans will be going, “Whaddya mean, you play for five days and it ends in a draw?”)
Sunday night update: Aussies need 423 to win (this would break several records) and the weather forecast is good (even if the pitch is slow). All we have to do is bowl them out, right?… Can I bear to watch?
Post-mortem, if you missed it: Australia just managed to save themselves from defeat. Yes, it was a draw, but you have never seen a draw quite like this one. If England can continue to play like they have in the last two tests (rather than the first one), this could be our first Ashes win since 1986. (And that’s why everyone is getting excited.)
