    Sir Ben of Stokes 120. But Mark Wood (Geordie boy) went nuts. Hope he picks up a couple of wickets tomorrow.

    Cricket's one of those sports that I'll watch if it's on Council telly and it's one of the big games-like the ashes.

    If England win, i'm happy enough but if they lose, i couldn't care less. Same with rugby.

    Mind, I do like listening to Test match Special during the Summer because they have a right laugh and some engaging conversations.

    Agree with this completely.

    Although I do like listening to Jonathan Agnew talk about it on 5Live.

    Love it me. Especially when England are over here. Can't wait for the 24th. Last time I was at Wanderers, Steve Harmison was in the out field. Everyone wanted his autograph but my son had his black n white top on and Steve lent over the boundarie and the other kids just to sign his shirt.

    Played quite a bit of cricket out in the Middle East great game but out there it was a lot of concrete slab wickets

    Played for my works club Das Island against Dubai Darjeeling a few times great weekend away

    Best weekend without doubt was the Dubai 7ís played a lot of rugby down there

    Cricket has to be one of the most mind numbing games to watch, ever.
    It's ok to play with a few mates on a nice sunny day but that's about it.

    Even watching carpet bowls seems like a serving of michelin 3 star dining compared to it.
