It’s been an interesting 36 hours, but one that has a silver lining.
No cricket for a day brought the silly squad out, and now everyone’s had their say, most notably about Pietersen, and less about the folly of Downton and the first plays of Colin Graves.
The South Africans did for Ireland in a big way, and the full test nation lobby has a little string to its bow.
There’s been the John Etheridge stuff which I’ve probably talked about too much. But it’s been revelatory.
Then there’s been another of our favourtie sponsored interviews, and Stuart Broad does little to disprove “the book” and its little take on our fading star.
But we don’t have perspective, we have guesswork, we have sneering superiority, we have arrogance. Oh well. Let’s move on. (oh dear, I sounded just like them).
Two games tonight, game threads to follow. I think we can say, without fear or favour, judging by hit rates and visitor numbers, that after a month re-establishing myself, the blog is back.
