Well the rain has got to NZ at last to try & save us.

Saw a photo on the BBC text last night of an England fan in a Barmy Army tshirt that had Gollum holding the world cup with him saying "they stole my precious"

I'd be quite happy if Gollum stole Root & hid him somewhere.

Just in case you happened to miss the women's T20 match between Nepal and The Maldives at the South Asian Games.

 

The Maldives were bowled out for 16 with bowler Anjali Chand taking 6-0 including a hat-trick. Nepal just managed to knock off the runs with only 19.1 overs to spare.

Not a big cricket fan, but I remember in 1981 being on holiday with my family down in Southsea and watching that classic Ashes win against the Australians. Willis was like a man possessed as he destroyed their batting order. What a bowler he was.

RIP Bob

Stokes wins sports personality of the year & Buttler running out Guptill off the final ball of the super over in the world cup final is best sporting moment of the year.

Enjoyed the show, Doddie Weir was the star, but I thought it strange that throughout the night every trophy played for was mentioned except The Calcutta Cup ???
