Bore draw at Lahore?

Blimey, the third Test is already upon us. How Test cricket moves these days – winter tours are no longer the long-drawn-out affairs they once used to be, or is that just because I’m getting older and wiser?

Michael Vaughan is going to return to opening, where he’s had a lot of success and James Anderson might well get a recall. This tour has come and gone in such a hurry, I’ve hardly had time to digest it – least of all now, and will miss all of tomorrow’s first day. I’ll stick a post up for the night owls able to courageously manage another disturbingly-early start (well, there’s always one!)

Last note; Inzy, spokesman from the department of the Bleeding Obvious. Wonderful batsman though he is, he wouldn’t get much more than 4 out of 10 for his public relations. He makes Duncan Fletcher sound – and look – like Max Clifford:

“Younis is our team’s main batsman and a key player. His loss definitely makes a difference to the side and especially to our batting. But we have players to take over; Asim Kamal is coming in as No. 3. His performances are good for us internationally.”
