Six Hours On

Just a quick post tonight, for I need to get to bed early, as test cricket returns tomorrow, with England v West Indies at Lord’s. First ball is in less than six and a half hours.

Although, I must say that since I have been reading a flawed yet lovely book about Sri Lankan cricket (look for a review in the next day or so), I find myself more in the mood for some Southern Hemisphere swashbuckling cricket than I am for St. John’s Wood and a watered down West Indies.

But Sri Lanka v Pakistan at the Galle International stadium is still over a month away, and tomorrow’s match is still test cricket, and England are still the number one test team on earth, and so I will wake early, and I will work from home so I can watch, and I will enjoy every moment.

As I mentioned on Twitter, I see the series ending 1-1. Expect a weather affected draw at Lord’s, double centuries from Cook and Trott and an England win at Trent Bridge, and a thrilling and famous win for the West Indies in Birmingham.

You heard it hear first.

The English summer begins tomorrow. Huzzah!

  1. Brave prediction there, I’d probably go for 1-0, given that one test is likely to be a weather affected draw as you say, and at least one will be an England win
