Sunday 25 July 2004

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.
