another day, another sport

It's another rest day on the Tour de France. This one precedes the big mountain stage to l'Alpe d'Huez

Fortunately, there's another sport that can be followed via online updates: a Test Match at Lord's between England and Pakistan. We're in the first test, day six. As action began this morning, Pakistan is at bat. The score is England 528-9d & 296-8 dec v Pakistan 445 & 117-3. If the scoring isn't clear, the beeb is happy to explain. See their Cricket for Beginners. Here's the link for latest updates.

The BBC caption for this photo reads "Matthew Hoggard sweeps a delivery from Danish Kaneria as England look to add quick runs before declaring at Lord's."
