Bye bye AB, AB bye bye

..................very nearly in the words of the immortal Bay City Rollers!

yes Abraham Benjamin has left our shores and that will probably be the last time that we ever see him play here. He has gone back to South Africa as he is not taking any part in the test series.

So lets talk about the final T20 which took place in Cardiff yesterday.

England took to the field and after Roy had gained his 'get out of s**t'  card in the last match, he lasted less than 2 overs.
In came Dawid Malan  and hit an outstanding 78, the highest scorer by a country mile and the possible contender for the openers spot I would think.

England posted  181-8.

South Africa came out and Hendricks was  gone again in less than 2 overs, he is the Roy of the South African team I fear.

Just after 10 overs Abraham Benjamin had gone and they were 4 down with  another 91 runs needed.

Well it wasn't to be their day, despite  spirited performances by  Moselie and Phehlukwayo.

Now it is onto the test series now and I will be heading off to Trent Bridge very soon.

Today sees the start of pink ball cricket, as we venture into the realms of day/night cricket.

How will this take off we ask ourselves?

well lets see how this week unfolds.

I have lots to do this morning, including attending a meeting!

well best to get a wriggle on.

See you all later
