More reason to be thankful that The Age publishes Peter Roebuck’s commentary on the cricket too. It makes breakfast newspaper reading enjoyable. Here is one example:

Lehmann will be popular with spectators because he is an antidote to the prevailing fashion, a throwback to the days of blue-collar cricketers. As far as this column knows, he spends his evenings reading long-winded novels, eating carrots and sipping fizzy water but he does manage to create the impression of a man with a more colourful range of recreational interests.

More’s the pity that the cricket itself may not be able to sustain so much interest, with contest so uneven. I’m glad that my tickets for the MCG test are for the second day, and not the fourth or fifth.
