Report GrimReaper December 26, 2009 11:57 AM GMT
Given your recent mood, I'm not sure I could hazard a guess.

However, Green Beard has suggested that it's a 7 at the moment, falling to 4 after tea.
Report bigpoppapump December 26, 2009 11:58 AM GMT
it's an 8.5

When I spoke to athers at the Oval a few weeks ago, I suggested that the UDRS system's main fault wasn't Athers' main concern (players questioning the umpires) but the disenfranchisement of the paying public.

Isn't it £40 to watch a test at lords this year?
