Phoney War

So, the Phoney War continues. There hasn't been too much of interest to anyone apart from the most pitiful one-day junkie (and the Sky Sports commentary team), although Bangladesh did manage to turn over New Zealand and Ireland had South Africa sweating for a while. However, yesterday's results may be more significant, with Australia reverting to type and comfortably beating England, India, with Munaf Patel hitting his ODI stride, cleaning up the West Indies and South Africa, who suddenly appear vulnerable, losing to Pakistan.

I saw very little of the England game but what I did see involved some fairly shambolic bowling and fielding from England, although Michael Vaughan did at least pass fifty in an ODI for the first time since goodness knows when.

Of course, it wasn't an 'official' international, which is a good thing, really, since Australia weren't the only side reverting to type at Arnos Vale yesterday.
