    Sadly the change in rules for the next World Cup (to 10 teams only) makes it less likely that Afghanistan, the Netherlands, Ireland, Scotland etc. will be there. A great shame and missed opportunity, IMHO.

    No one wants to watch women's sport, including tennis. ;)

    We don't have a telly but have enjoyed coverage of both the men's and the women's tournaments on BBC five live and talks port 2.

    It was lovely to see Chris Gayle celebrating with the Afghan players. The spirit of cricket is alive and well.

    I shall only watch women's tennis like I used to do when the shrieking has been banned.

    Back in the 60s, 70s and 80s, we all watched women's tennis.

    However, that's a digression. Cricket is a huge force for good in the world, and to see the joy shared by cricket-lovers everywhere in the victory won by poor, unhappy Afghanistan is something to cherish.

    Have you read ' Penguins Stopped Play ' by Harry Thompson ? Great book about cricket and the love of / for the game.

    I won't pay to line Murdoch's pockets so watching cricket on TV is a thing of the past.

    I just can't be bothered with T20. Nothing wrong with it but I'm a Test-fan. TMS or going to the ground for me.

    But well done to Afghanistan. Cricket in the W Indies is also a thing of the past though. When we went to Barbados last year there were hardly any local fans at the Oval. Sad. The ground was 90% English supporters.

    Test cricket is still the best. 20/20 is a lollipop. All the same, I've enjoyed listening to the matches on the radio this year.

    Are you a WCCC member, grumpy? I was for years but let it slip when I moved to London. I really miss my regular seat and walking along the banks of the river Lea on match days.

    No, I'm not. And I really ought to be. That is actually part of my cunning plan. You have reminded me. I had better get on it. ;):)

    Membership is good value, and, as a bonus, you get to be one of the snoots who get booed when the mexican waves stop at the enclosure!

    £305

    That is a bargain. Especially as I've been meaning to indoctrinate the grandchildren this year. And anyone else I can lay my hands on. What say my grandson plays for England, eh? I see him as opening batsman. We always hoped elder daughter would marry Jimmy Anderson! Sadly it was not to be. :oops:

    Seniors pay £205. Sadly, we're not in brum enough to justify even that. :(
