Match 5 of this "gripping" 7 ODIs between NZ and SL and then once that's over it's straight into the much needed world cup warm-up games before they play each other in the loving tournament opener.

I had only noticed one Pakistan game and thought that was a warm-up. Didn't know they were making a series of it.

I don't think they're going to play Malinga until their warm up against South Africa at the earliest. He's teetering on the edge of his ankle exploding.

He's the WG Grace to our delicate Victorian sensibilities. His frightful attitude and gamesmanship are ruining the gentlemanly game!

Anderson should be told to shut the gently caress up by the umpires more often as well.

I think there was a highlights thing last year, though I want to say it was on Channel 5 and therefore poo poo.

I might be confusing it with other poo poo England highlights on 5 though.

If a bunch of people are willing to pay to turn up for a few hours and not be allowed to take drink in, the counties aren't going to interfere with it.
