At the precise moment Malcolm Speed, the ICC chief executive, was saying sorry for the bizarre ending of the World Cup final the ICC hoarding behind him came unstuck from the wall, and almost hit his head.

Does a minimum number of overs have to be bowled before Sunny Gavaskar does his daily podcast in this series? Podcasts for days two and four of the Lahore Test are now out, following from his debut on Day One, but it seems the fifteen overs of play produced on Monday was insufficient.
The first edition of Sunil Gavaskar's podcast "My Own Pitch" is up on Yahoo! India. It's a fairly dry summary of the first day's play of the Lahore Test. The podcast's web page is here if you want to download or subscribe. (If you're a Juice or Ipodder user, then this link should handle the subscription for you.)
The first edition runs for 2 minutes 43 seconds, but beware, it contains a loud background hum and seems to end abruptly.
For the first time in India, and perhaps in the cricketing world, podcasts will be available to cricket aficionados to download and listen to at their convenience.

Well no, Sunny won't be featuring in the cricketing world's first podcast, though he may well be the first leading player to appear in one.
