You'd expect Ryan to be good at footie since his Dad was a pro!

I like the challenges. Hoggy's were most amusing. I was also surprised to see Ryanione playing batminton as a right hander.

Hoggy's the only one with a genuinely sparkling personality...

Alistair Cook's genuine diary bears a remarkable resemblance to the spoof Ian Bell diary.

There's a lady that meets up with Cooky every so often - he speaks the diary and then she writes it up for him? I reckon that's how it works...

BTW, if anyone has any questions for him - just put them up on here and I'll write them up on the group.

Well done to Cook on his 100. I particularly liked the shot that he played going down on one knee to the spinner.

Great knock wasnt it? And the fact he scored at a strike rate of 80 shows he can adapt really well to this form of the game. Love to see more 100's from him this series.

Agree completely EC.. Whats with that half grown beard??? I tried that once when I was his age (gee thats going back a while). Tried to make myself look older than I was - looked horrible. He should lose it and have a clean shaven look.

Yes, but have you grown a beard?

I haven't shaved for a fortnight and am finding it irritatingly scratchy.

That's the worst part. Once you get past that, you're home safe. Until you have to shave it off that is.
