Is that the 1840 invasion written off?
Just 3 more to go then.

Looks like England could be up against it versus Pakistan. Good first test has hopefully set up the series well. Need Anderson and Stokes back.

Oh for a decent spinner though.

Or a couple of batsmen that can play legbreak spin ...

I'm still smarting from an incident at the Hua Hin 6s in about 2001 when an Aussie caught my teammate Mike Gatting and carried it about 5 metres over the boundary.

I was so charged up that I went and scored 4 or something. Good strike-rate mind.

Will be at the Oval for Day 4 (hopefully the match will run into Day 4) of the England v Pakistan game on Sunday 14th August 2016. Will we spot any other UAFC members?

England v Ireland at Lord's on Sunday.

No rain forecast at the moment but no sun either!
I may opt for two pairs of socks.

Bairstow warmed up for it with 170 today.
