    I blame Tony Greig and Mark Nicholas.
    I enjoyed the ODI a few years back now it's turned into a joke I tend to watch more of the tests than the short term matches.

    Since becoming the province of colonial reprobates like Rojik, and even worse, Indians, Cricket has become a very different game, of short matches, cheerleaders, much advertising, excited announcers, CG graphics laden presentation, fights, brightly coloured team uniforms, social anarchy (you don't even have to wear a tie in the Long Room at Lords any more) and other madness. It's worse than football.

    Umpire, Skob. And I don't think they can call for tea except at the allotted time. I might have to check that.
