Peter Roebuck reminds us that “…it is worth bearing in mind that Australia were two runs away from taking a 2-0 lead [at Edgbaston].”
Very true. It really was that close. I remember having to get away and get out of the house. Went for a drive, at granny-like speed, with TMS on the radio. Wound the windows down and turned the radio off, trying in vain to think of something else…but after what felt like half an hour, but which was 2 minutes, I kept turning it back on to get the score! The crazy things we do.
