Our Son Was There
No 2 son, Patrick was at the Melbourne Cricket Ground yesterday to see Shane Warne clean bowl Andrew Strauss to take his 700th test wicket - and then take yet another 5 wicket haul on an unhelpful pitch. Poor Strauss will join Gatting in the history books as landmark victims of the great man. Patrick rang us on Xmas day, just after landing in Melbourne. He was bound to be really tired today. I just hope he hadn't nodded off when the fateful ball was bowled.
