    Well Brett Lee has been getting some bounce out of it, which bodes well for Flintoff and Harmison.

    I don't like Graeme Smith he is mean and scary.
    But he's one of the best captains around. I watched Somerset 20-20 semi final and final and he was the difference. (but he does look scary )

    Darn, Jones is out as well. Hopefully the tail will still wag. At least we got over 400, but I have a feeling it might not be enough. I'd be delighted with over 500.

    These championships are depressing for British Athletics.

    I still remember the World Championships in Gothenburg and UK Athletics were pretty good back then, they were easily the best in Europe, after maybe Germany.

    Now UK Athletics is worthless except maybe on the track at sprint and even then, it's only at European level that we can win anything. At world level, the US and the Carribean are way ahead
    Not only are we doing useless in the world of athletics I havnt been impressed with the standard of competition. Especially the 100m and 200m metre finals which were really poor. I know the conditions are bad but 20.04 last night in the 200m is really quite slow for a world final. Thats over 0.7 off the world record!! Hope Benjamin can run a good race in the 400m tonight and somehow snatch a medal.

    I reckon if the remainders hit out they could reach 500....its quite wierd that despite actually (apparently) being the one there who can bat, you would rather have the last 2 men slogging!

    I think we might get about 500. The Aussies have had problems with our tail before, the only time the tale scored low was in the second innings at Lords.
