And not the final score

Slightly confused yesterday watching the BBC ‘Six O'Clock News’ as it appeared that despite having won the third test, England's hopes of victory were still in the balance.

I'd been expecting to see Flintoff and victory celebrations, maybe it was true that after years of struggling to understand cricket and the intricacies of test matches, follow-ons and one day internationals I still somehow didn't get it.

Were we actually about to play another match having apparently won? No, presenter George Alagiah dutiful explained: "Apologies, we had the wrong report there."

Nothing like yesterday's news to confuse.
