    Yeah I have this problem, none of the people I live with are the least bit interested apart from my girlfriend who doesnt really want to watch cricket but will enjoy Australia winning. She is looking forward to going to Lords though.

Did that once when I'd just bought a pint.
    It's infuriating. I asked them to switch over once while we were having breakfast in Manchester during the Eng-WI series. Sky Sports ****ing News was on instead. They said they were kinda busy so they'd press a button on a remote control when they got the chance. They never did. I asked them three more times and they just got snappier. ****ing wankers. Won't be going into that bar again.

    It's the Oxford, for anyone in the area who wants to know where not to go to watch cricket.

    In shock. To think I voted for Pothas in BOTM. Disheartened now, don't know what to believe in anymore.

    Our Virgin internet breaks down with far more regularity than it should, though the TV is yet to go the same way... have had other near-the-worst-possible-time heart-stop cases with various TV breakdowns before now however.

    Not going to be able to watch as much as I planned to because of the new job. Might have to depend on rebroadcasts and what little I can catch.

    True. They very nearly didn't join in 1901, and Labor didn't pick up a seat there in 07.

    Gave us Dennis Lillee and Gilly though.

    Yeah, apparently so. Denied us a raft of good rugby players, better skiing a decent international left arm tweaker.

    Hey! NSW gave us Gilly...WA gave us the chance to see him in action earlier though.
