Commercial: The Duckworth Lewis Method
Ah. An Ashes summer is upon us once more, so what better way is there to wallow in the inevitable rain and misery than with a cheery and upbeat collection of witty and literate songs dedicated to The World's Greatest Game (not my coinage, but you know it's right.)
So hats, caps and sunblock off then to Messrs Hannon and Walsh, who have downed bats from their respective sides (The Divine Comedy and Pugwash) to pen a fine XII, full of vim, vigor, gambolling and a first-person narrative from Mike Gatting which mentions a cheese roll.
We made a quick step down the wicket to The Oval last night to watch D-L in action, and fine time was had by all - not least due to the revved up 'Soul Limbo' they ended with. If the ECB are smart, they'll sign up to provide tea time entertainment across the country in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, you can interwebually stroll into their pavilion now.
