    going strong, I notice.

    That is some dark magic at work. Only Kali Herself could deal with it.

    Speaking of the Gods of Jinxery, I was partly responsible for Burns' dismissal. I'd been watching with the sound off for a while and remarkably we hadn't lost a wicket. (Very often the act of me watching makes us lose wickets). I didn't dare to put the sound on because we woudl definitely lose a wicket if I did.

    Eventually he got his ton and I thought it can't hurt to rewind and watch it with some audio to celebrate it, and two balls later ....

    I know what you mean. If the ECB would pay me not to watch, we'd have a much better team.

    I had something weird going on back in 2005. I remember there was one game where I jinxed pretty much the entire Australian top order out by posting on here.

    I didn't use Awimb for cricket back then. But that summer I was mostly in the UK for the first time in over a decade. I hadn't watched any cricket when travelling and thanks to Sky, mostly, but being stuck in Delhi the winter before (Tsunami) I watched our tour of SA and got back in to it.

    That summer was ace.

    Congrats on your jinxing.

    I remember you doing your bit during Broad's 8-15, though.
