Apologies to regular readers for the lack of posts recently, I am afraid that with England not in action, and the rather obvious nature of what cricket has been played, I have been less than inspired to commit fingers to keyboard.
However, things are on the up. Am excited about the prospect of the England v Sri Lanka test series, particularly as England need to start re-establishing its test credentials.
Was delighted that Matthew Hoggard has performed well in the warm-ups and that most of the batsmen have had some time in the middle.
Given how poor the Kiwis were in South Africa recently, I would expect us to win that series, however Sri Lanka will be the big challenge. Murali will once again be the deciding factor. Nullify him and England could enjoy a very good winter indeed.
