The UAE briefly looked like they were going to beat the West Indies (and other stories) – mop-up of the day

It’s only a warm-up match, but it seems that like much of western Europe, the West Indies still have plenty of warming to do. They’re so cold that you wouldn’t be surprised to learn that they’ve suffered a burst pipe or two once they actually thaw.

They were bowled out for 115 by the mighty UAE today. Their path to World Cup qualification is covered with ice.

Update: After we risked deploying a headline implying they were likely to lose, the West Indies won by 32 runs. Of course they did.

England Lions don’t look smart

Apparently lions are the only big cats that can learn by watching others. We saw a thing the other day where they asked one lion to learn about opening a door towards herself to get some food. It took her a bit of time, but when they gave an onlooker lion a go at the same challenge, she immediately aced it.

England Lions should maybe spend more time watching each other bat. (Either that or less time because they’re only learning what not to do. We’re not sure.) They’re about to lose a long format series (they’re not Tests) to West Indies A.

It’s going to be 3-0; a 3-0 defeat to the guys who aren’t good enough to lose to the UAE.

Australia are playing South Africa

You’ll probably already know a more recent score than the one at the time of writing and you may have something to say in the comments section.

To be honest, we only mention this in a bid to prevent at least one “in other news…” despite knowing full well that stating this ambition explicitly is only likely to draw a greater number of such things.

  2. On reading this, I looked at the test score and saw 151/3.

    When I clicked to see more, it said 151/4 – Steve Smith out in the very instant of me paying that match some attention…

    …thanks to you, KC.

    Steve Smith, caught Ged Ladd, bowled King Cricket, 56.

    We did it, KC. We did that thing that England couldn’t do – we got Steve Smith out.

  3. The Windies decided to ruin it by getting the UAE down to 58-7 at rain.

  4. Last-baller of a match between Scotland and Ireland. Which is good because it is exciting but also maybe a bit sad since if Ireland are going to be really competitive for World Cup qualification and beyond, ideally they would be absolutely pummelling a side like Scotland.
