Love you! It was funny for sure. And in this ICC World T20 England were going to lose a match and win the next win but the Islanders will disrupt their plans because there is no way out for West Indies, the weather forecast people said that it's going to rain in the league but not after that and the best all-rounder in history will be keen to take revenge from Fidel. In all the matches West Indies have played against England so far, Gayle has failed to fire and he can't even escape it by not playing as he and Taylor did in the warm-up. He was in the XI but he probably got scared when he saw jimmy and broady. So, hope England defeats India and West Indies, looking forward to your next article/blog/cricinfo talk....thank you, bye.

Hey Andy,

I think it's a great idea to have your audio reports...I loved your blogs and this tops it. I'd be great to have you behind the mic in the commentary box. You'd make a fabulous commentator. God knows we need some decent humour there after the vulgarities of the IPL and dreary stuff on sky. Keep posting... Thanks.
