The white ball…

“England won their first major overseas one-day tournament since 1997 as they beat Australia by 34 runs in the second match of the finals series in Sydney.” The BBC have the story

Which is another way of saying that we won the one day series against the Aussies.  [ A 2-0 ‘whitewash’?  – I post this only in honour one of the great Australian bowlers – McGrath – who could be relied on to predict whitewashes against England.  It was good to see him get a wicket on his final ball at the Sydney Cricket Ground – the last ball he will bowl in Australia in first class cricket.]

It was a good match – although it was just as interesting to listen to commentators trying to work out the Duckworth-Lewis rules and commentating on the rain reports on Australian radar!

I will say no more. The Cricket Wold Cup starts soon…

Dan: Thanks for the mention. “Charon is for Saturdays” I liked that.
