Who'd av thought it - Matthew Turner - 21-03-2018

Just when you think nothing can surprise you, Scotland playing West Indies for a place in the Cricket World Cup - looking pretty good after 10 overs.

West Indies having another wobble at 35 overs.

Well I guess some sort of order has been restored to the universe, but a tragic way for Scotland to go out.

Is this cricket based banter an attempt to suck up to Peter Svidler?

I enjoy the cricket World Cup.  You’ve got the big clashes but then you’ve the David vs Goliath struggles;  Ireland have had some brilliant matches.  Now the ICC have reduced the number of teams and that magic of the cup is missing, I cannot fathom the logic.

Well indeed, who'd have thought Scotland would defeat the 'Auld Enemy' at cricket.
