    These diaries tend to be what they are - Ponting, or anyone else, is unlikely to be pursuing a course they think is stupid at the time, and they're written too soon and too quickly for any introspection to have occurred. What you get instead is "we won, very pleasing", or "while we lost, I think we did everything right that we could, and while we need to take responsibility, people forget that x, y, and z".

    That said, I've put it on the list for Santa - will read it once, chuckle regularly and put it on the shelf.

    Aye he did mention it casually, but I skipped that part of the paragraph.

    I borrowed Mark Butcher's Teach Yourself Cricket from the local library the other day. I think this is a great book for someone whose only started to seriously learn about the game. That's the intended target audience, and I've got a lot of out this.

    So who got cricket books for Chrimbo?

    Just to show what a sad bastard I am my favoured present was a copy of a little Indian published paperback account of the 76/77 MCC tour by Dicky Rutnager which came accompanied by six similar volumes two of which I didn't already have!

    One about the travelling AEE of the 1860s
