Anyone watch the 3 T20 Tests, England B, partial, v Pakistan.

1st....swashbuckling cricket from both sides, loved it, Pakistan 1 up, not so loved it lol!

2nd....basically ditto Test 1, loved it, but even more as England pulled it back 1 each, loved it more lol!

3rd....brilliant from both sides, spin bowling at its best, loved it, daren't hold my breath, we are going to win, no we ain't, plonkers, back n forth, positive/negative, huge sigh of relief, Mr Cool Chris Jordan, gets the final 4 runs, England win the series 2-1, total loved it lol!

I see that Anthony Joshua is to defend his title, Sept 6, at Our bastion of Football, lol!

Well, my home city, Brisbane has been awarded the 2032 Olympic Games.

Absolute farce though. There was no other country in the running. Our Premier insisted she travel to Tokyo to meet the IOC face to face, even although it was a lay down misere. She left a Covid Free area, Brisbane, travelled to a Covid hot spot, Sydney (which is out of control and in complete lockdown), then flew to Tokyo who are experiencing circa 1100 new cases per day! All this after her preaching to Queenslanders to stay put.

So, a bit of a slow burn if you like, meaning we're not all that excited, given it's 11 years away. Many billions to be spent upgrading facilities and infrastructure. I guess it will be great for our economy.

Just watched the Olympics 3 on 3 basketball final. Latvia v Russia. What an exciting and amazing game. For me ordinary basketball is boring even though my son had South of England trials. 3 on 3 is so different for me. Great.
