Well done, England!
Many congratulations to the England cricket team on winning the second Test Match at Lord's. It was a thrilling game, up to the last minute, with brilliant bowling by both Andrew Flintoff and Graeme Swann. It has been widely publicised that we had not beaten Australia at Lord's for 75 years, but it is not so well known that in fact we had not beaten them for 40 years before that, so we can said that it is only the second time it has happened in 115 years. Test cricket is like Wimbledon, or the Derby, or the Grand National - something we can all enjoy and get involved in, whether or not we follow the sport the rest of the year.
