Up goddammit

My plan was to listen to the first 10 overs and then go to bed in order to get up early enough to hear the final 10 overs however this plan has failed. First there was a couple of quick wickets and the prospect of an early dismissal/quick win and then there was a prolonged coughing fit of backin15-junior.

Now I'm up, munchy and alert - not so much so that a fifth of bourbon wouldn't suffice but for the fact I've not got one/any...

Bondy's just knocked over Silva LBW ... hang about Cricinfo is reporting an inside edge:
34.3 Bond to Silva, OUT, unlucky! Bond switches to a fuller length, gets it to angle in from outside off stump, Silva gets stuck deep in the crease, jabs the bat down onto it, gets a relatively thick inside-edge back onto the pads - an awkward noise, if ever there was one - and after a couple of seconds Koertzen raises the finger. Unfortunate decision for Silva
Oh well...

Bring on Australia and yet another sleepless night... practice for the Rugby World Cup perhaps?

Yeah, time zones don't work out so well for you guys over there. At this rate there won't be that much for you to see when you wake up anyway (NZ are 39/2 after 11.2 overs).

I'm kinda keen to go to bed given I'll be up again at 3.30am to go to the ANZAC dawn service at 5am in Hyde Park, but it's quite addictive.

Yep, wasn't worth sitting up for. I could have used the extra sleep too! Shame about Flem though, he was a better captain than batsman...
