Tea, Leave!

August 21st, 2006

The world is going to hell in a hand basket. Every day there is a story that illustrates the point. Today I submit for your perusal the following story from the world of cricket:

Pakistan failed to take the field after tea on the fourth day of the fourth and final test against England on Sunday after the touring side were accused of ball tampering.

Anybody who has ever been to Britain knows, it’s tea first then we deal with the problem. If Pakistan really wanted to rattle the Brits cages, they should have refused the tea until the problem was solved.

For a play by play of this stunning controversy – How the Drama Unfolded. Note:

-2.12pm:…nerves start to fray as the third-wicket partnership between Alastair Cook and Kevin Pietersen reaches 100 in 93 minutes.

-2.14: Cook is out leg-before to an in swinging yorker

-3.45: Bad light stops play and tea is taken early.

Looks like a right sticky wicket all round. Now if you’ll excuse me, but it’s 4:15 and I am late for early tea.
