I've just spent the morning watching the 4th day's play of the first test between England and the West Indies at Lords. England have been batting to a declaration and once again, Freddie Flintoff has shown what a legend he is becoming. First there were his wickets yesterday, but not there as his quick-fire 50. Best innings I ever saw was Fred batting at Lords v the South Africans last year. Mind you, the second best was Michael Vaughan at Trent Bridge against the Indians in 2002, and the skipper has done us proud again with a century in each innings of this match. He is such an elegant player, and he looks to be coming back to something like his form of a couple of years ago. Let's hope it all hangs together for the Australians next summer.
Nice to hear Geoffrey Boycott back on the box as well, although I have severe reservations about the qualities of Vivyan Richards as a summariser on TMS.
