    ^ Too right!

    I'm listening to this bloody cricket on Radio 5 live with my headphones on, daughter asleep by my side while also watching it on this silly link David3-0atTD gave for the Ashes a few months ago. There must be a 5 minute delay between the radio commentary and video footage. Very confusing....

    It doesn't feel right to get pissed up on Highland Park with the daughter sleeping alongside... but how can you not? A weird feeling this... confidence about England.

    Just wait until you get Reg sidling up to you for a cuddle under your Hello Kitty duvet. Then we can talk about weird feelings.

    It's odd when you don't really care if the openers are lost in the first session.

    101 for 2 and Root reverse scoops for 6...

    Sybille will probably be apoplectic but I'm upgrading that "it's there for the taking" to "they'd be c u n t s if they threw this away now".

    I'm not a betting man, but I don't think Michael Atherton is a great fan of this NZ spinner.

    England have cut the chase to 113 runs to win with 8 wickets in hand.

    Much will depend on the rain tomorrow and the conditions in the morning.

    182 for 2 in just 39 overs is pretty impressive.

    ^ They cut it down to a 20 over game now so even with a little interruption it should be on.

    It would be nice to see Pope and Root polish off their centuries.

    All good practice for the wobblies next week.

    They seem to be warming up with an ODI series against Ireland.

    Acknowledging that 182 for 2 in just 39 overs is impressive is not changing my tune.

    They put up great numbers in the first innings too, and you were saying they had no chance.

    So how about now, tune changer?

    Don't argue with sybille, he is the "expert".

    I said they'd collapse, as England has a history of.

    I was wrong.

    It's OK, I said it was there for the taking, I was wrong too apparently.

    Aah, that explains it. I've been listening to Radio 5 Live and was getting very confused... seems I've been listening to some women's match in South Africa.

    ^ I'm on it.

    Been thinking as well that the daughter should experience a day's cricket at Taunton during our holiday. Tbh she's not keen but I reckon her father knows best.
