And THAT is why Test Cricket is the BEST game in the world!
It defied all logic - Australia murdered us over 5 days but we emerged as the psychological victors after a nail biting draw - but who cares about logic? You can imagine Yanks scratching their heads in total bemusement if anybody tried to explain why a no result was so incredibly exciting, but for anybody who knows anything about the true drama of sport, today's events were up there with the very best. Anderson and Panesar of all people, holding the Aussie bowlers at bay for the best part of an hour - that is comparable to the Colchester victory over the then mighty Leeds United!
Twenty20 cricket? Stuff it. Two guys blocking and counting down the minutes was far more exciting for any true cricket fan. I am at Lords next Saturday and I can't wait!
