    I personally think people have got bored with wrestling, it was a sort of craze in 2000/2001 and I remember sitting and watching it on Sunday afternoons on Channel 4. But people got bored of the blatent fakeness of the whole thing and switched off. However, younger kids are still getting into it because to them its highly exciting, and I know one of my friends' little brother was going to watch the WWE tour in the UK. For me however it lost its appeal years back.
    I think you just grew out of it, like me. I stopped watching it in about 2000 as well. Now you say it's just little kids watching it; 12-13 year olds perhaps, just like we were when we watched it?!

    Pakistan 300/4

    Inzamam 80 not out, Afridi 62 not out

    Pak will be hoping for 500, England will be looking to finish things off quickly. Belter of a pitch though.

    True, and he'll probably come back and win again just as Nalbandian said, but it's nice to see another name as the winner.

    I agree that people just grow out of wrestling. It was really popular here in the early-mid 90s and the early 00s but I feel it's sort of died down now.

    I saw TNA once on Eurosport by the way, it looked alright.

    Well yeah federer was still shrugging off an injury.. just a shame to see those records go.. 24 streight final wins, 35 matches unbeaten. Nalbandian is a great player though and it was an awsome match so well done to him.

    Tough situation. If Pakistan score in the region of 500 it will be a hard game to win. I had a look at the pitch before hand on TV and it looks absolutely dead (as you'd expect). England will need to score 600 within about 140-170 overs to put pressure on Pakistan in their second innings. The pitch might turn later on but it hardly looks like a minefield at the moment, if England can bowl Pakistan out cheaply tomorrow morning (they only need two wickets before they're into the tail and should wrap it up) and then put some pressure on Pakistan.

    I'm going to disagree with Geoffery Boycott here, England need to go out tomorrow when they bat with serious intent. They need to play their shots and be aggresive. I'm not saying they need to try and hit every ball for six, but they need to realise that there's 4 days left of this test match, and will probably need more than a day to bowl Pakistan out again. I think England will need to score 600 in one and a half to two days to have a chance of winning on this pitch, which means scoring pretty rapidly. They don't need to be stupid, but they need to realise the circumstances, they basically have very little to lose at this stage of the game.

    I watched the Ireland game and the Wales game. Southern Hemisphere will dominate for the next few years I reckon (although Australia are crap.)

    Australia weren't that impressive, no...
    England looked awesome - definately, in my opinion, the best in the northern hemisphere, so, with australia so useless right now, top 3 in the world, maybe even second (I reckon they could take the bokkes personally)
    But, still - NZ were pretty impressive...
