I approve of cricket in South Africa, which seems always to start around 8.30 in the morning, which is a very good time to have cricket on the telly. And the last hour’s been great fun: five wickets, two chances that really shouldn’t have been missed (Jones dropped catch, Vaughan missed run-out) as South Africa have gone from an overnight score of 184-3 to 222-8 dec. This hour of incompetence shouldn’t stop them winning the match quite comfortably, unless something very surprising happens, but, as I say, it’s been fun to watch.

Right: time to go to the library.
