    I'm afraid I fell apart during overs 19 and 20 of the Kenyan innings. With thunder rumbling, they were doing an over in 2 minutes. Got the score wrong, forgot to update bowler details. I'd just finished Harbhajan's analysis and realised Yuvraj was already on ball 3

    I'm sure you can be forgived as it sounds bloody hard, quality details as well as being fairly quick in updating.

    I tried watching over 35-end of the Kenyan innings on Teletext, and there were loads of mistakes on there. For example at about over 42-ish they had Yuvraj bowling the over, then it was Srinath, then they decided it was Zaheer after about the second ball.

    All they have to do is update the score and the wickets, don't even need to do any commentary.

    Don't worry, you did a fine job.

    Cheers, Lloyd. I'm quietly smug at what you say. It's great that we proved to be superior to Teletext (at only our second go too).

    Those of you who were looking in on the live coverage of the final - OUCH!!!!

    I seemed to lose my connection to the update thread, then when I checked what was wrong the same over details had gone in 4 times.

    Sorry about that - I thought that the coverage of the final was really good too (until I got involved at the end).

    Oops. Sorry again

    Well, Ceefax contrived to get "Srinath b Srinath 1" - so there's always someone making a bigger mess
