Well I'd sooner have one or two of the women that a couple of others on Sky.

I'd never have thought it a few years ago but I'm slowly coming to the conclusion that Mr. Holding's commentary is outdated and smacks of the blind it was better in my day attitude. His comment about helmets not necessarily being good for the game after Robinson took one right in the grill was ridiculous and Ward did well to skirt around it.

I don't mind Isa Guha but there's one that I just can't take seriously cos she sounds so much like a silly school-girl.

It's when you hear past clips that you miss the characters like Bumble, etc (though I could never abide Blowers). These days everything seems a bit more sanitised. How long was it for that Bumble got away with things like referring to "the Sky Ladies and Girlfriends" for instance?

I don't know if it has a movement sensor or if it is manned but the first cam late yesterday was facing the opposite way and was zoomed in on the very far end of the building where the falcon was weirdly standing on the ledge facing the building but with it's head turned completely round the opposite way looking outwards. When the falcon finally left the camera zoomed back out and some time earlier today switched back to the similar view as camera 2. The falcon itself seems to like hiding under the ledge when it rains. I was never remotely interested in such things until this match but Notts Wildlife Trust has a whole history of the family. Apparently last breeding season the male put his own niece in The Pudding Club, the randy little rooster.

It's been years since I made that kind of profit on a single match. Mind you I've been in temporary reds of that kind of order of magnitude twice recently due to rain and been grateful to trade out for a token green. I always remind myself that money not lost has the same value as money won (relatively more so if you Kelly-bet) so I try to even up before the fifth day, but couldn't resist the odds in case they got on for a session.

I know what you mean, you go high red on short odds to reverse a bad bet to try and level or go green. This is my biggest cricket win since Lords 20 August 2006 incident.

Glad I took the green on this one. Was away for the weekend and thought Friday was the dodgy day. Saturday and Sunday were supposed to be good.

England are a shambles at the moment and need leadership as well as changes.

Hameed and Malan come in for me for Sibley and Crawley. A spinner, really should be Leach sla against rhb of India but Moen is also a wild card choice as our batting is so carp and we cannot as yet balance out The Ginger. Broad or Curran should make way. I am still not a fan of Butler in this format. His wicket keeping is not anywhere near good enough for me and he is still a white ball cricketer albeit a great one.

Not sure of bowler fitness and who is being rotated and rested! I know Foakes is out but he would never get the nod ahead of Butler.
