Oh come on. By chance I woke up at around 5 this morning and saw all three early wickets, nothing much since though. Outstanding couple of catches.

One man should not have this much power in this game. Luckily I'm not an ordinary man.

This is going to be a really tight finish, one more wicket straight after tea tips it in England's favour otherwise Sri Lanka will probably take it.

Waking up and it’s all done and dusted. Bloody time zones.

The end of this Pakistan vs NZ game is pretty tight, looks like Pakistan might throw it away.

5 short and it's all over. You do wonder why Ali didn't just try and belt a four or two instead of farming the strike for one single every over.

Been in the queue for over an hour, can't imagine there will be any left by the time I actually get on. All the bots have probably scraped the tickets by now and they will be on Ticketmaster/Stubhub etc.

Think it depends on match. I went on at 10 and had 4 tickets for Aus SA at OT in my basket but couldn't get anyone to confirm so didn't do it in end,

Anderson will miss the third test so that Broad can play.

Probably sensible. Whoever it is they’ll barely bowl. Means we might get to see some of Broad’s manic batting too.

I tell you what, that Aussie T20I team has got to be close to their best team. They've certainly got the top five right, Tye, Behrendorff and Stanlake are their best T20 bowlers (yes better than Starc). The only places they could improve that line up IMO are with a better spinner which I don't know if they have and McDermott.
