With Alec Stewart, I met several England players in a bar after the match

 Vaughan gets 50


 Vaughan gets a brilliant 100

Vaughan was brilliant and held England together in second innings but India had been on top and eventually won the match.

England vs New Zealand Trent Bridge 2008

New Zealand were terrible, Anderson and Sidebottom were too good!

England vs South Africa Edgbaston 2008

A great days cricket, Graham Smith scored a brilliant century and won the match for the saffers.

England vs Pakistan  Trent Bridge 2010

 A 100 for Matt Prior which gave England a total to defend then Anderson and Broad were just too good, reducing Pakistan to 15/3 by the end of play.  England won easily the next day.

England vs Sri Lanka  Lords

Dilshan scored a big hundred but the day was cut in half by rain.  This did give us the chance to have a look around the Lords museum which had the T20 world cup on display at the time.  The match was eventually drawn.

The whole family at England vs West Indies  Trent Bridge 2012

Strauss scored a big hundred

Graeme Swann

Great day, WI made 370 and we saw England's reply of 428.  Then Broad and Anderson knocked over the top order and Bresnan took wickets to leave WI 61/6 at the end of play.  England completed a comfortable win the following day.
