Ian, care to do me a favour and check cricinfo? I believe our broadcast is over 90 minutes delayed, so without giving away what the score currently is, can you tell me if it looks like a game worth watching? I mean, nobody needs to see a Twenty20 like that one earlier this year when Australia brutalised India at the G, so if it's like that I might as well just listen to phanan's list.
Is it the one with Chennai playing?

Current situation suggests it might be a pretty good watch, to be honest.

Awesome. Thanks for letting me know, I appreciate it. I've just put it on. It's in the second over and Sreesanth is taking a pounding, Patel hit fours off the first three balls.

Chennai have nice, bright uniforms that I like. Punjab's is rather bland, kinda reminds me of the days when New Zealand had mediocre grey uniforms. Not as bad as the beige era though!

Mike Hussey and Matty Hayden batting right now, it might as well be Australia vs Punjab.

And cricket purists must be having a heart attack watching this game.

I'm just grateful Channel 10 hasn't decided to do its own commentary. We've got some Indian commentary and it kicks the shit out of non-Benaud Aussie commentary.

Do you know if Sky or anyone else is going to be showing many games from the tournament?

Giggleswick, Wetwang and now you're in the Hole of Horcum. This thread is really convincing me that we need to try harder in North Yorkshire when it comes to coming up with names for places...

I've always believed Sri Lanka is the perfect timezone for all test cricket.

Days play starts about 5pm NZT and stumps around about midnight. I call that perfect.

Sky did show some live the other night, i'm expecting that because tonight was very busy live-sport wise they put the cricket aside.

Not a big disaster, IMO.


Up next: 8000.
