Nice little site here live-streaming the Afghanistan v Ireland Test match (where our former great hope George has been distinguishing himself with the bat, unlike most of his team-mates):


Not just visuals, they have moving cameras, replays and quite sensible commentary.

The tragic events in Christchurch in the peaceable land of New Zealand can in no way be laid at that country's door. Cricket lovers will be relieved that the Bangladesh team did not arrive at the mosque five minutes earlier and the decision to cancel the Test Match and allow the visitors to return home is entiely right in the circumstances.

I completely agree, LoL.

Christchurch has still not recovered from the effects of the earthquake and this horrific attack is another bodyblow. Jacinta Abernathy’s, who seems a most impressive woman, spoke very well about this being an attack on the whole country.

An exceptional response by the NZ Prime Minister, and a very young Prime Minister at that, to an incident, the horror and iniquity of which are beyond description. May the survivors of the incident, including the Bangladeshi cricket team who came so close to being in the mosque, and the families and friends of the victims who lost their lives, find some peace. Although how is beyond imagining. May their faith bring them some relief. Beyond that words fail.

Wow! Jos just Mankaded by Ashwin at IPL. Yes, he's out, but I hate that. Absolutely hate it.

Anyone who saw the IPL running-out of Jos Buttler at the IPL today will have little doubt that Ravi Ashwin has overtaken Murali Kartik as the most unpleasant Indian cricketer on the international circuit.

Jos (69 from 43 balls) was taking the game away from the Kings XI Punjab when Aswin stopped in mid-delivery, waited for Buttler to move out of his crease - and took the bails off.

It doesn`t come more calculating nasty than that. On the only previous occasion it has happened in the IPL, the bowler apologised to the batter at the end of the match. I`m not betting my mortgage on Ashwin doing the same.

Strange that the two most notable victims in recent times - Buttler and Alex Barrow - used to open the batting together at King`s College, Taunton

To be Mankaded once in one's career may be regarded as a misfortune, for it to happen twice looks like carelessness.
