Young Stuart Broad’s heroics yesterday were, indeed, fantastic. The ‘problem’ of Broad now solved? Yet this blog must take you back a week or so, when the ‘problem’ was ‘solved’ by your humble writers, an entire 3 days before his feat. We shall wallow in self-righteousness.

As we all know, the Ashes starts on Thursday. But why not quench that international cricket thirst by following The Leading Edge’s own David Lovell in his international debut in the ICC Intercontinental Shield match between Bermuda and Uganda. Scoring 2 off 3 balls from no. 10 in Bermda’s formidible total of 91, Lovell went on to bowl 4 overs of undescipt bowling. One for the future perhaps!
The Leading Edge grew inauspiciously out of the ashes of perhaps the greatest ever student house, and, er, the Ashes. Perhaps the only house to be equipped with Sky Sports, a 40 inch TV and 3 fanatical foaming cricket followers (and two not-so-keeners) whose level of “banter” (shudder) never fell below exceptional standards, even when Ramnaresh Sarwan pillaged 291 on a pitch that even J. P. Fraser got have comfortably got a two-figure score. The dream however was shattered – suddenly we were graduates and separated by a horrific 70 miles of south east British land. With the Ashes fast approaching, and an average of 473 text messages on Ian Bell’s hairstyle flying between us each day, a ‘blog’ seemed like the most appropriate way to carry on the spirit of our student days.
