BTW, Jayawardene has a century?:wonder:
This will be the "turbaned" Yanks, & West Indian Yanks + afew Limeys & Aussies etc.
I believe the "motorised", "computerised", "Ipodised", "blackberry-ised", baseball- basketball- and NFL-ised, Yankee peasantry will not be ready for a game as civilised & cultured as cricket for several hundred years yet. And the born-again rednecks of the deep South may never become civilised enough for it.
Come to think of it the same applies to Canada. How the hell did I end up here?

Dont worry. We cricketers shall overcome. It is the only game in the world that unites peoples who play it.
A Jamaican can admire an Englishman's game and an Australian can take his shirt off to an Indian and ask for it to be autographed.
Cricket is more than a religion; it is a way of life. Generally, cricketers are more polite than other sportsmen.

And again, this time by 4 wickets, in the final few balls for the third time in a row. Your chaps really do struggle abroad don't they? This should be their best chance of defeating a team not called Zimbabwe away from home. At the moment I think Bangladesh would defeat you if you played them in Bangladesh.
At this time, I think even the Portuguese would do it if we played in Lisbon.:wonder:
Lets see what the convict coach pulls out of his hat for the remaining matches.
