.............who would have thought it? It can only happen in this country............. actually it happened in Wales but nevermind.
Yes I'm talking about England beating Sri Lanka in the first Test match in Cardiff.
So England beat the Sri Lankan touring side by an innings and 14 runs after what was looking like another rain soaked cricket match was going to be a draw.
After England took to the field at 3 pm it was looking like we might as well pack up the pic-nic, fold up the winter woolies and head South, that was until Belly made his 13th test hundred and a shaky lead of 96!!!
So with 51 overs to take 10 Sri Lankan wickets and the fizz well and truly spent in the champagne stakes, on came the England fielders, with Tremlett and Swanny taking 4 a piece, the tourists were reduced to flat Lemonade and were all out for 82!!!
Roll on Lords and more 5 day cricket this summer!
