    Will try and make the start. The first session of the series always has extra excitement.

    Starts 05:00 local time so its my usual get up time minus an hour, doable. I even may be able to watch first hour and a half undisturbed by them

    I'm going to put my balls on the line and say England will win this series.

    I see Cribb has moved onto a more hardcore bookie's.

    Anyway, of course England will win it, goes without saying etc etc

    It was an error in speech interpreted as occurring due to some sub-conscious, dynamically repressed subdued wish or desire.

    ATMU, The populist usage of the term usually refers to sexual innuendo but it originally can be used for any slip of tongue.




    (But yes, I am usually turned on by away series. Particularly to South Africa)

    I have abandoned any pretensions of watching Aus-SA and am going to devote myself to this series. I figure that it should fit in reasonably well with normality... 9pm-4am is pretty much the same as midnight-7am...

    The second Tests of each respective series will actually be on the same days too; glorious.

    Looking forward to catching the start tomorrow, Can only watch three days after which I have to fly to Delhi and then work begins for the next 30 days and the Supreme Court lawyer under whom I am working told me that he has three ground rules - 1. There are no timings in litigation, 2. There are no sundays in litigation, 3. There are no sick leaves in litigation. Sounds very fun.
    Did he add 4. There is no sense in litigation.. ?

    Not watching any of this and how typical that the first Test series we play where I have a job that involves driving long distances and yet I'm on a train to London so no TMS. ****.

    I'm amazed people are happy with Patel at six.

    He's not a batsman!
