"Predictably, the ending of his international career did not end the argument about Pietersen's merits, as an army of informed commentators and Piers Morgan weighed in to defend or attack him."

U19 test match seems evenly setup. Stone showing why he has broken into county cricket. I think he's a decent batsman as well but dislocated his finger in the first test so is batting 11.
Sibley has done well with a 50 and now a 100. Didn't really accelerate today with the tail but only 17 so can't ask much more.
Steyn has got nothing on this Stone bloke. 11-48 currently in the u19 test match from 39 overs.
England need to bat the last day to save the u19 test. Seems unlikely given the success of the two SA spinners in the first innings.
Saw this yesterday but didn't know where to put it. More classy behaviour by the BCCI.

Chasing it not out of the question, albeit difficult. They wouldn't have to bat all that quickly to make it in time.
I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

Come on Hammond. Bat out this last session and make Oxfordshire, Gloucestershire and Neil Pickup very proud.
Barnard out. Looks tough to save the game from here - still only 78 runs to go though
First game of Lions tour to Australia tonight playing Victoria. More excited about this tour than the main New Zealand tour.
Massive opportunity for these guys with the ashes and then the world cup coming up in Australia in the next two years. Anyone who has a real good tour could be propelled into the ODI team.
Great opportunity for Stokes and Clarke to push themselves forward given England are looking for a batting allrounder who bowls pace for both test and ODI.
Also a great opportunity for all the bowlers, with the England bowling unit in 1 day cricket being a lot less settled and there is definitely a squad place available if one of the guys has a good tour. I could potentially see any of the fast bowlers making a full squad this year - much harder for any of the batsmen to break through to the senior team with less rotation and more quality reserve options./

Shame about the under 19s loss, conceded too many in the third innings it seems. Made for a good series though.
Is it just one-day matches for the Lions tour?
Hmm first game wasn't very promising.
Coverton did well, so it was a success in my opinion
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,

Bobby Q back in the runs, good to see.
