                Psst, don't tell anyone but I love the cricket, but if it gets out I will never be allowed back in Scotland, I am off work with chest infection so I'm listening to it on test match special.

                      I may as well get it all out in the open and ask for forgiveness , I used to play it as well , I'm so ashamed , wish I was a crack addict it would be easier to admit.
                      There is no excuse for it, I don't even have any English blood in me anywhere down the line, so I just can't explain it, maybe I have some South African blood as they all seem to play for England lol.

                        There is no shame in liking cricket it is only savages that don't understand the game that don't like it. Go Aussies go.

                              37.2 Lyon to Bell, out Caught by S Smith!! Why did I say that he was blocking well? The Gabba erupts. England in deep trouble now. 8 times out of 10 Bell would have easily nudged this shortish delivery behind square on the on-side, but this time he gets an inside edge which pops to short-leg off the thigh pad. Australia have got their rewards for keeping the pressure on the batsmen. Bell c S Smith b Lyon 5(16)

                              37.3 Lyon to Prior, out Caught by S Smith!! Well, well, well, this was very similar to Bell's dismissal. Lyon has got two wickets with balls ones were not really wicket taking deliveries. Slower and shorter down the leg side, Prior tries to flick, instead the ball goes straight onto the thigh pad off the face of the bat, Smith dives to his right from short-leg and completes a fine catch. So then, we have the first DRS of the series and a sucessful one. Lyon wasn't convinced but it was Smith who demanded a review. Prior c S Smith b Lyon 0(1)

                              37.4 Lyon to Broad, no run, a really poor hat-trick ball. Flighted delivery wide outside off stump.

                              Close but no cigar . . .
