By going away, not updating the site properly and then doing a half-arsed round-up post on a Monday morning, even though we don’t really know what happened because we weren’t actually paying any attention.
Pakistan won a one-day series against India
We did actually watch some of this. And by ‘watch’, we of course mean ‘had on in the background while reading about something else on the internet’.
In a three match series, India’s highest score was 227-6. Virender Sehwag has been dropped in favour of Cheteshwar Pujara.

By having some sort of petulant fit at each other. Fingers were pointed. Bats were flung limply into the air in the vague direction of someone. Viewers cringed.
England lost a one-day warm-up match
Ian Bell said it didn’t matter. England’s last one-day tour of India was only just over a year ago, so he’s probably right. If the main fixtures can’t retain even a semblance of meaning for much longer than 12 months, the warm-ups have even less relevance.
Apparently, the weather was cold and foggy for the game. That was probably the highlight.
