To be honest, NWG's heart isn't really in this ODI series. That being said, for the last half an hour of the game last night she was genuinely interested.
That was until Ryan rocked in to bat.
This was his chance, after all his moaning about not being included in the Ashes, to make a difference.
To win a game for England.
And what does he do with six to get off two balls?
Hits a single.
And that, Ryan, is why you weren't in the England Test side.
Shame on you.

Let's see if this one can be completed.
The English weather gods have obviously gone on holiday after their impressive performance during the Oval Test. It must have really taken it out of them.
Yesterday - great weather.
Today - cloudy, bit rainy and windy.
Potential weather for Manchester? Doubtful.
Still, England at least have Mr. Positive for a captain. Collingwood will never say a bad word about his team mates.
About Joe Denly being out for a duck:
What should have been said: "Don't play ridiculous shots that are doomed to fail. Idiot."
What Collingwood actually said: "I'm glad he's got the belief and confidence to go for a shot like that."
Mr Positive - NWG thinks you have a lot of work to do.

So, with only a week passed since England won those lovely little Ashes back, the team are attempting a game of Twenty20 against Australia.
How's it going, NWG hears you ask?
In one word: badly.
It's raining. Australia scored a load of runs, and England are currently 4-2 (Ravi failed - again).
NWG just can't really get that excited. She has barely come down from the high last Sunday. Now more cricket?
Update: Match has been abandoned. Lucky escape for the England batsmen...
She needs a breather (read holiday).
