A Whole New World

So with the news that England are World Twenty20 champions (NWG may mention this at the start of every post this year even, as in this case, it is not connected in any way), there comes news of something exciting.

A bowler in England is trying to perfect bowling a ball that bounces twice before reaching the batsman.

And no, technically this is not a no-ball.

And yes, it may stop batsmen hitting those pesky sixes.

Will it be something Graeme Swann may adopt?

How will KP work out how to smack it over the boundary?

Australia Win

Australia did win something after all. It just wasn't the boys.

Well done the women team - England thought it only fair that they share some prizes.

Yes

England won something. They actually beat a string of teams to win an actual trophy.

They are world Twenty20 champions.

They thrashed Australia.

KP was man of the tournament.

There is simply too much good news, NWG can't take it.

But she would like to reiterate that she predicted England would win about a week ago. And she was right.

NWG is happy.

NWG is finally satisfied that England managed to deliver.

Today's The Day

Well it's here.

The big one.

The be all and end all (of today anyway).

The clash of the Titans (not in 3D).

NWG is frankly fearful. Australia played the game of the tournament against Pakistan, and all NWG is hoping is that that was their big one.

England must win.

This is their chance.

And let's face it, it's not going to happen again soon.
