So no surprise that it's raining, we are in England after all. And yes, it's annoying. And yes, it's boring.
Sky sports, not wanting the viewers to be bored, keep the interest by showing the old games (who would have thought that this could be interesting?). At this moment, a Test game from 2000 is being shown between England and the West Indies. Far more interesting than watching it rain (England are/were being thrashed). And the old characters.
Darren Gough - woo.
Andrew Caddick - NWG had forgotten those ears.
Mark Ramprakash - oh how he failed at international level.
Curtley Ambrose - wow, he is frightening when he's fired up.
NWG bets that you don't get that in Australia (mainly because it never seems to rain).
This is way better than watching a draw take place.

Chris Gayle doesn't like criticism.
Poor Andrew Strauss simply stated that no one from the England side would be able to swan in with two days notice to start a Test, and Gayle has gone all defensive.
Hit a sore spot?
If Gayle hates Test cricket so much, why make him play? Leave him to the IPL, the Stanford matches (though probably will never happen again) and the Twenty20 World Cup.
Fine by England. Wonder what his team mates think.....
