Chris Schofield, former Lancashire and England leg spinner, played two tests for England in 2000, before being dropped, sacked by Lancashire (before he subsequently won a pile of cash for an unfair dismissal), and eventually living in his car. Today he took 2/15 to help England beat the Zimbos. Kevin Pietersen scored a rapid 70-odd, however it was the Surrey legspinner, brought back from cricketing oblivion by Mark and Alan Butcher, that caught my attention. Fair play to the man, here’s hoping he propells England to winning this tournament. See Wikipedia for more details of his turbulent career.

Tomorrow England could put the Aussies out. Wouldn’t that be good!
