My traffic always picks up when you and yours start ignoring me a dozen times a day.

Maybe you and KowKow can chip in and buy a card?

T20's a bit of fun but ODI can depend too much on the toss. ODI is my least favourite flavour for the reason you gave below.

Well, I love all three forms of the game, because they all have that drama in them. ODI can be quite lovely - your team needs to get 32 off 20 balls, but with 3 wickets standing... What will happen? Finally, those final over climaxes are always to be savoured! Need 5 runs off 3 deliveries, all the fielders are pulled close to save the signal... I love it!

I'm no expert but Ireland would have a team of their own.
England, Wales and Scotland and NI? Now that's tricky. We merged those football teams into Team UK for the home Olympics but a) we are sh!t because UK footballers are selfish wankers and b) we won't be doing that for 2016.
I'd certainly like to see separate England, Wales and Scotland teams for Olympic rugby.

Okay, the football experiment at the Olympics failed, I agree.

But in rugby, the B&I Lions are a team as old as Cretaceous fossils - they have been around since forever. So where a UK football team failed, as a rugby team, they are indeed a powerhouse of world rugby. A Lions' tour is arguably surpassed only in stature by the RWC. I for one would love to see the B&I Lions vs the Boks at the Olympics!

Cook just scored another century, he's 135 not out and has broken the record for most centuries for an English player, and he's still only 27, he's gunna set records that no one will ne able to break

India missed two easy catches that should have had cook out, I can't believe how bad we've been, I knew cook would punish us for it

Alistair Cook is a hard bastard to get out, meknows very well. Fine player.

Talking of greats, Ricky Ponting retired. What a player he has been

Team UK football failed because they were UK footballers. Other sports would have a better team ethos.
