John McClane in a hostage situation at Headingley couldnae make cricket exciting.
Gone to better place, which, quite frankly, could be anywhere.

Pleased for the young lad who bowled the last over. It looked as if he'd blown it.
Don’t walk away in silence.

A great F1 live today then the tennis final. Outstanding performance by Djokovic and Federer, both very modest players.

F1 great too , had some interesting moments.

Not interested in cricket, golf, football, but may the best man (or woman) win.

I had intended to watch the cricket but I couldn't take my eyes of the wet paint. And it was still in the tin.
You missed a treat. ;)

No one could ever say that was boring.

Just because the Scots have no sporting heritage don't mock the English. :D

Ooh hang on..Jocky Wilson. he was good at drinking.
I thought the Scots were tossers of cabers

I do believe the Scots like to watch grown men toss their own cabers. :?

It is not really a mainstream sport is it ? Certainly not something you would want to watch live. Or repeated for that matter :shock:

I prefer cricket. :lol:

The cricket was amazing and unforgettable.

I don't imagine that happening again.

How come I berate a sport and the response is to berate Scotland. Can you see the problem there? O thee of the land of Brexit.

Sometimes Poundlanders can't do better, Ally, so they need to mock.
