    On SKY at 1330 today is the first one day match England vs Ireland. Should be interesting. Highlights on BBC2 at 2335.

    That was indeed memorable, Jim Maxwell is going to be jealous!

    Well played David Willey! Gutted for him last year when he was dropped from the World Cup squad (Archer? meh. Mercenary Soldier)

    What a Great comeback.

    Sam Billings played well, if he had got out, like the top order, England might have had a different result.

    One of the SKY commentators was a certain Kevin Pietersen, that was a real hoot. Good game.

    Pietersen was terrible, cannot stand him.

    Fortunately we don`t have SKY so no problem.

    Tall, good-looking, very talented and mildly amusing. Was it inevitable he will seem arrogant to us normal mortals ?

    I’ve never found him amusing, better players than him are less annoying & he offers no insight as a summariser.

    Yes he could be supremely annoying I'm sure.

    He was so annoying to his former South African team mates that he had to come to England to get to play international cricket.

    Michael Holding is such a great commentator, comes across very well but he is something of a polymath.

    Did I hear he was retiring?

    Anyway, great tests and the second ODI was a fantastic watch.

    Andrew C! Been around a while....

    On the topic of commentary, I’ve really enjoyed TMS, too. Especially Chef, when he was available, doing the test match commentary. Also Braithwaite - he was really good, too.

    160 for 1 at the halfway? - looking interesting.

    If their respective autobiographies are to be believed, he is second only to Donovan as the most talented human being of all time.

    Were those the odds on Ireland winning after Englands innings?

    Not a bad little earner for someone.

    Something not right about the whole thing. Morgan sitting out the Irish innings. The bowlers chucking pies.

    Ireland got some points for the new super league.

    What a load of baloney.
