England v Sri Lanka

As NWG writes this, England are doing ok.

NWG knows, she's in shock too.

It's currently 52-4.

Is that Sri Lanka playing badly or England playing well?

NWG is unsure.

What's Love Got To Do With It?

As much as NWG wishes that all cricket ended in August when England won the Ashes (and then England could have kept them forever - alas), she accepts that it must go on.

There will always be more cricket.

And so, the ICC Champions Trophy has begun.

Is it interesting? Probably not.

Is that because England have absolutely no chance, not even if it was just England and Scotland left, of winning? NWG doesn't think so.

But that's fine. NWG can accept that England are not the greatest ODI side. She's moved on.

What's far more interesting is what's coming out of Gary Kirsten's mouth at the moment. Because it's not, as one would expect, 'train harder,' 'practice fielding,' and the like.

No.

And it's way better than Justin Langer's dossier on the bad points of the England team (well done, Justin by the way. NWG has yet to congratulate you).

Kirsten has decided that way to increase India's aggression is to advise all his players to have more sex.

NWG would have loved to have seen the face of of some ECB official if that had been Andy Flower's advice during the Ashes.

For this reason, NWG has decided that after supporting England, her loyalty will go to India.

Ricky's Pain

"We would have lost the one day series 7-0 to win the Ashes."

Ricky, that's exactly what Andrew Strauss said to the devil in July (well, he actually said 1-6, just to keep the fans at bay).
