At 0-68 chasing 260 with two-and-a-half days to play, I was starting to get worried..... ;-)

I watched that last session instead of the local Big Bash/20-20 competition- that was crazy.

Mike Atherton isn't holding back...

Athers was by far the best of the imported people on TV commentary, Alison Mitchell being a regular fixture down here now. Why the fuck Channel 7 ponied up any money at all for Botham is beyond me - he's incoherent and way past it. Send him back to the House of Lords where he (doesn't) belong

He always was an ill informed buffoon.

Great player, dreadful commentator.
As silver tears they weave and lace,
Sad patterns upon her face,
She waits for you.
So low below a laser sun,
Through velvet fields she runs,
Reaching for you.
