    Got away with it two years running. If that's not a big wake-up call to those in charge down there, then nothing will be.

    Pretty ****-poor that they're playing a County Championship game at an out-ground in September. We'd have had nearly two full days' play at Lord's with its proper drainage.

    It sounded as if it was a typical Cardiff track. Slow, not a lot on offer for batsmen unless they really force the issue (risky), and our lightning quick start was more due to wayward bowling than...
