Thorpe’s 100th Test

It’s a great achievement to play 100 Tests, and I think most fans of Graham Thorpe feel it’s especially pleasing to see him reach the milestone given his problems off the field in the past few years. But…it’s Bangladesh. I wonder how he feels about it, especially considering he made a 100 on debut, 12 years ago, against Australia. How perfect it would have been to play the first Ashes Test of the summer, and for it to have been his 100th. I’m sorry, but I can’t help feeling the way I do about Bangladesh. When the coach of the national team publicly admits it’s going to “get tougher,” after the humiliation of Lord’s, well…it’s just a lost cause.

Uber Scott is on a hiatus until The Real Stuff starts – and today, it’s under 50 days until D-Day. Or should that be A-Day? Seems so far off…
