    Nah, it was all down to me leaving the country on the rest day to travel around Europe for a month.

    The thing about Leeds was it was only the last three sessions that were worth watching. The first three and a half days were dire.

    So I'll vote for the centenary test, which was brilliant form start to finish. Not that it will affect the final result at all.

    Judging by the picture, Athers' ton made even more impressive by the fact that he did it with a pair of these in:



    I vote Hobart, though.

    Jo'burg. Athers's finest moment. Great support from Jack Russell too.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Jo'burg, I was driving down the M4 most of that day - thought I'd turn off the Springsteen CD (actually very possibly a cassette in those days) in order to listen to the sad last knockings of the Test, but they never came

    Jo'burg for me too, a rare fine moment in a depressing time for English cricket.
