I know nothing about cricket. But obviously today you cannot escape it. The thing that struck me, though, was how gracious Shane Warne and Ricky Ponting were in defeat. Can you imagine Roy Keane congratulating Chelsea on their fantastic performance if Man U had lost the FA Cup Final to a last minute goal (with a hint of offside)? But, despite the furore over substitutes, the Australians congratulated England on their excellent performances and seemed pleased to have been part of such a fantastic contest.
