Having stayed up late — for me — last night, I just managed to crawl out of bed at 5 this morning to follow the last couple of hours of England’s one-day cricket match against South Africa. It was worth it, with England winning decisively.
Once again it was our old stalwart Paul Collingwood who was man of the match, taking wickets and a spectacular catch in the South African innings, and then knocking off an unbeated 105 runs. He was brilliantly supported by Jonathan Trott and Eoin Morgan in the run chase.
After the up and down play in the T20s, this augers well for the rest of the ODI series and, later, for the Tests.
