In what will be the closest I’ll get to an Ashes Test-atmosphere this year, my 3 tickets for the Tsunami fund-raiser arrived today. Can’t wait. We’re in the “smoking section” of the Mound stand (since when did the ground have designated smoking areas? And have they erected a wall to divide us smelly smokers from anti-smokers?!). More on the match here – I really hope it’ll be packed out…I’m taking two of my mates, neither of who have been to an International before, or to Lord’s.
