A one-day series that was actually good comes to an end

England v IndiaEngland and India drew their seven match one-day series after the final match at Lord’s ended in a tie. India batted first, Sachin Tendulkar scoring every single one of their 92 runs. In reply, England fell to 0-9 until Jimmy Anderson spirited up an unbelievable rearguard action scoring 92 by himself while Monty Panesar remained strokeless and scoreless at the other end. The match was also notable for a world record 20 run outs.

Okay, we admit it, we’re not around and we’ve written this in advance. Whatever the outcome of the final match, we’re sure you’ll agree that this has actually been a really good one-day series. We’ve rediscovered a lot of our appreciation for the one-day game. We thought that appreciation had moulded.

If you’re really disappointed in having nothing relevant to read, why not add something pithy in the comments so that other King Cricket readers won’t suffer the same needless fate. Or you could just call us a dick.

That should ensure a few comments for us to read on our return. It’ll be Wednesday, incidentally, but we’ve got stuff lined-up for the start of the week. Fear not.

4 Appeals

  1. Pity you’re not around, as you’ve missed a brilliant 107 n.o. from Rob Key off a mere 91 balls.

  2. Don’t worry, everyone. I’m going to a cricket match tomorrow, so they’ll be a proper report, showing evidence of some actual effort and attentiveness soon.

  3. And I won’t make amateur grammatical mistakes in that.

  4. … you’re a dick.

    There, I said it, as the rest of you were too chicken.
