Herman and Jean - darn it, you made an old man very happy. Want to try it again?

I May Destroy You is phenomenal.

Darn the weather, obviously, but that was some great cricket. So grateful that two such classy sides made the trip. Thank you WI and Pakistan.

Blimey the advertising is just ferocious . You go online to find out the capital of Uruguay, make one false click, and you've bought a watch, or an electric scooter, or you're not BELIEVING what somebody looks like now.

Have a lovely Christmas, world - and thank you to all the people who aren't having one because they're looking after things that allow the rest of us to have one
