There's been a lot of cricket to watch lately, most of it on TV including
Aus v SL Tests & ODIs
SAf v NZ & Pak ditto
Aus v WI ODIs
NZ v Eng ODIs (Tests to come)
Women's World Cup
Sheffield Shield (an under strength SA today beat an also under strength NSW outright)
Ryobi ODD comp (SA faded)
BBL T20 (SA ditto).
Australia's fortunes have risen a little since its failure to take the Test series v South Africa, though Sri Lanka ruffled its feathers in the ODIs.
Tomorrow the Test series v India begins in Chennai. I'm not by any means optimistic about our chances, not least because of the unsettled nature of the side , particularly the quick bowlers, and the inexperience both in India and in general.
I will naturally be watching the match closely and hope to post a few thoughts here and not only, as has been my custom for the last couple of months, in the confined spaces of Facebook and Twitter.
