I would never always want any team to lose, but having spent much time in Australia they are the side whom I always desire to win - even against England.

Bring on the Ashes.

That's why LoL always wants the Tibet or Xizang Autonomous Region to beat England in Tests. As I write they remain unbeaten. I shall spend the next week investigating all the statistics.

There's trouble ahead...

Tibet v Buganda would test LoL's loyalties.

I am delighted for West Indies and for Bangladesh - and for the shot in the arm for Test cricket which the two results have provided.

If you were referring to me, SP, then you are wrong. I want England to win the Ashes but avoid allowing desire to colour prediction.

That win yesterday must be good for West Indies cricket and cricket in general.

For the information of Bobstan, Tibet is unarguably on top of the world.

The result in Bangladesh was little surprise as the Aussie batsmen, more so even than England's, have made a habit of embarrassing themselves vs spin.

Higher than Dunkery Beacon? That I cannot believe.

Glastonbury Tor is higher than Dunkery Beacon.

The Tor must have grown a bit since I last climbed it!

The Tor is one third the height of the Beacon. So very close.

Glastonbury Tor is not as high as Ayers Rock / Uluru as the England players will find out when they go. It will be very hot there which is just one of the difficulties of batting or fielding overseas all day, the Aussies only need to wait a while and watch us wilt

Reports from the Oval that Stokes may be out of the final ODIs. Neither he or Hales at nets today. Hmmm.

Strauss on his way to the Oval to give a statement re Stokes. Safe to say its not that he's just gone in the fetlock.

And that would, surely, be the final nail in the Ashes coffin, if Stokes has a major injury. It was difficult to see an England side with major question marks in the top three doing well Down Under anyway, but if they've lost Stokes..

Incident in Bristol early hours of Monday. Stokes arrested and detained overnight before being released without charge pending further enquiries. Hales returning to Bristol to help police.

Silly boys.

As the Archbishop of Canterbury once said, when asked by a a journalist during a visit to the West Country, if he was concerned about the reputation of Bristol`s night clubs: "Are there any night clubs in Bristol."

Headline in the Evening Post the next day:

ARCHBISHOP ASKS IF THERE ARE ANY NIGHT CLUBS IN BRISTOL.

Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball and Liam Plunkett fined and warned by ECB

Sky Sports News understands Bairstow, Ball and Plunkett were out in Bristol on the same night as Ben Stokes and Alex Hales on September 25 but were not with them at the time of the incident that led to Stokes' arrest on suspicion of actual bodily harm.

An ECB statement read: "Jonny Bairstow, Jake Ball and Liam Plunkett have each accepted a formal written warning and fine for unprofessional conduct - unrelated to the investigations into Ben Stokes and Alex Hales - with undisclosed sums paid equally to the PCA Benevolent Fund and the Hornsby Professional Cricketers' Fund
