Happy birthday

Happy Birthday today to krabbe and dduane. Obviously a very good day for those who would later move to Ireland to live.

(Unlike tomorrow, which seems to be the opposite. No, not a bad day, rather a good day for clanwilliam, who moved in the opposite direction.)

Hmm, cricket

So England currently have 363-4, partly through the second day of this test match.

OK, that's going to be a draw. It's obviously a batting pitch, so the Windies are also going to score well, there won't be enough time to bowl them out the second time, and the whole match will run out of time.

(It's too late for a proper batting collapse in this innings.)

(OK, 363-5 now. Maybe they can fall over.)

ETA: No, now 389-5, so no collapse then.

ETA: Now 515-5. Hmm. 3 centuries so far, and Bell at 98. I pity the WI bowlers.
