Favourite pic so far is Alpha magazine journalists have just been given by Cricket Australia. Looks very much like Australian Attitude…
Other amusements from today:
I love the way the have a duck outline on the TV scorecard when someone gets nought here. Quite a few on show today.
Tony Greig’s voice on the TV. Totally indistinguishable from the 12th man.
Oli Broom was interviewed by Jonathan Agnew on TMS during the tea-break (pics in the gallery). He’s on Sky tomorrow. Hopefully it will drive some donations.
Doug the Rug flicking Barmy Army members the V when skirting the boundary in the morning session.
Interviewing former Australian player Greg Matthews for a TWC eyewitness. Great bloke, incredibly outspoken, remembering one dodgy umpiring decision his voice lifted an octave in frustration, some 24 years on, “I was seeing it like a fucking watermelon mate.” He’s not a fan of Bob Simpson either.
Meeting Richie Benaud very briefly.
Peter Siddle – Top performance from a top bloke.
