Ah, the magic of WordPress scheduling – giving anyone interested a Boxing Day Test post on which to comment without the author having to interrupt his Christmas drinking.

We wrote this in advance because Coachhouse’s Posthorn will have got the better of us by now. We’re staying away from the internet until at least tomorrow.

For everyone else, the Christmas arguments are over; the apologising on behalf of various courier companies is complete; the drinking continues and the Boxing Day Test begins. Comment away if you’re there.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. Well I’m up.

    I haven’t got to the stage I need a duvet yet, but I know there is an 8.5 tog in the spare roon that I can get if needed.

  2. So, felt like moseying on over here. 58/4. Hmmm. Anyone remember when Australia had a good top order?

  3. “What is the difference between a man ironing his pants and an Australian batsman?….

    Man ironing his pants stays longer at the crease.”

    Merry Christmas come a day later for yu boozards of de ingleesh krikut

  4. I was listening through the night but my laptop was on the other side of the room, and the thought of raising my head from the pillow..
    Thanks for the Venns, Ged – solid commitment to the cause there

  5. Well, it’s not like I missed the BEST DAY EVER or anything by failing to make it out there. *cries*

    That’s the last time I’ll mention it, I promise.

  6. I’m always in a bit of a half-sleep when I check the score on my phone in the morning. Quite often it’s hard to know whether I am awake or dreaming. Four hours later, I’m assuming that Spiderman is going to walk through the door any minute.
