The Only Problem With England Australia Tests

After the thrilling test match at Nottingham over the last five days, surely it shows that England Australia Test Matches are one of the most amazing sporting spectacles in the sporting world.

The only problem is that the various Test grounds here are too small, with the possibly exception of the Oval. But then as they were saying yesterday on Test Match Special, they are spreading the games a bit thin, with extra test venues, like Cardiff, Durham and the Rose Bowl coming on stream in the last few years.

Definitely gone are the days in the 1960s, when some of my schoolmates, used to get up early on the Saturday of the Lords Test, rush to the ground and buy tickets to get places on the grass, just beyond the boundary rope.
