Pretty good day for England yesterday, but an excellent fightback from ABDV, Rudolph, Duminy, Philander and Steyn.  Would have been good if they had been able to get another wicket last night, but hopefully they can wrap it up in the first hour this morning.  Finn is an enigma - brilliant at times, wayward and too expensive at others.  It's a toss up between the wickets he takes and the runs that he will concede.  In limited overs cricket, he has been England's best bowler for the last 2 years or so, but still not quite the finished article in test matches.  Interestingly, after being left out of the side yesterday morning, Onions bolted up the M1 and proceeded to take 9 wickets against Notts (and ran out number 10).  So not a bad day's work then!

As for Blake, I call bs.  Apparently he was interviewed by Sky at tea, and told Holding that he was as quick a bowler as the great man back in the day.  And he would like to see T20 in the Olympics, so that he could compete in both that and athletics...  If he and Bolt do play in the Big Bash, it would certainly bring in the crowds, but it would smack of a publicity stunt rather than anything based on their cricketing ability.  Would also be quite fun to see the pair of them brought back down to size a bit if someone Aussie that  no one has ever heard of takes Blake's 90mph bowling apart  ;D
