England v South Africa, One Day International, Lord’s, 2 September 2012

Well I have made my excuses for my poor memory of the Lord’s Test Match that year (Olympic summer blah blah)…

…they apply similarly to the ODI a couple of weeks later.

Here’s the scorecard – a happy ending for England this time.

It has the look of one of those “win the toss, bowl, win the match” one day matches that you tend to get at Lord’s in September.

I vaguely remember it being slow going and always feeling that England should be able to time and therefore win the chase, which they did.

But in truth, I think Janie and I had our minds half on our Paralympics day, which was all set for the next day.

Still, there’s no such thing as a bad day watching cricket at Lord’s, so for sure we had a good day.
