a day of rest?

OK the World Cup over and this is a Tour de France rest day. What's needed to fill the void? Why cricket of course and not an international test match, but the Twenty20 cup competition which pits UK county teams against each other in short, fast-paced matches. There's a Twenty20 web site to keep you up to date. And you can follow matches live on Cricinfo, club pages, SportingLife, BBC, or ECB.

Eurosport, which doesn't cover cricket at all, much less provide live coverage, is saying that Marco Materazzi called Zinedine Zidane a 'dirty terrorist' thus provoking the outrageous headbut at the end of the France-Italy final yesterday. Also: "French television has reported that Zidane - silent up till now - will talk about the incident 'in the coming days'."
