Umar Gul's bowling today was that which every England bowler longs for.
Not being hit for six sixes.
Not repeatedly throwing the ball at the stumps.
But actually bowling like a genius.
And with figures of six measly runs and five huge wickets.
Note to the England bowlers: that's how it's done.

NWG's favourite cricketer of all time has had a great day with the ball.
Too old to bowl? NWG thinks not.
Oh yeah and NWG had a fun day at Lord's.
The Sri Lanka v Pakistan was good enough, but the India v West Indies game was a peach.
And, of course, it being Lord's, NWG had a little altercation with a very silly man who was having a cigarette away from his box. The conversation went something along these lines:
Stupid man: "It's nice to see a girl at the cricket. Who are you here with?"
NWG: "Well, I'm here because I bought the tickets."
Stupid man: "Oh, do you like cricket then?"
NWG: "Obviously. And I was at the cricket last weekend, and I'll be there tomorrow, the day after, the day after that and the final."
Stupid man: "Golly. I was invited because I work for ____"
NWG: "Golly indeed. Good for you, now go away."

NWG is incapable of writing a post about today's South Africa v England game.
It is simply too shocking.
It was so close.
England almost had it.
South Africa were rubbish.
The England batsmen were outstanding.
How could this have happened?
Simply put: it's a tragedy.

Well there had to be some good news eventually and it comes in the unusual shape of an Australian.
John Buchanan, former Australian coach, has gone all rogue agent and has agreed to join the ECB on a short-term coaching deal.
This could be excellent for one reason: he'd give England all the secrets on the Australian team.
But there is always a downside. Namely, he's a double agent and has a red phone directly to Ricky's hotel room in Leicester.
NWG is not decided on his main intention. Though hopefully the ECB are paying him a shed load of money so that he won't be divulging how Mitchell Johnson can simply look at Freddy's knee and it will break.

What a game.
NWG was on the edge of her very comfy seat the whole match.
And KP obviously was too scared about NWG's threat to throw cricket balls at him, so he decided to play.
England aren't out of it.
NWG had a minor altercation with KP earlier today. In a fit of rage, she sprayed KP with as much paint as she could find in a bid to show how angry she was with him.
If he doesn't show for the Pakistan game today, she will be throwing cricket balls at him instead of paint.
