You wouldn't know the Women's World Cup is going on at the moment.
And not just because I haven't written about it yet.
But because on Cricinfo the only mention of it is down the left hand menu.
And then, the first sentence of the lead story isn't about cricket at all.
During the second World War, a secret bunker in Bankstown was used as the base for Australia's air-force operations.
Cricinfo. For all your wartime history needs.
I flicked onto Fox Sports 2, whose programme listed said "ICC Women's World Cup". But instead they were showing the last Test between Australia and South Africa. Men.
Who's going to win this series? I do not know. My tip is England though. I'd rather it was New Zealand. Or Bangladesh. Or, you know, Australia, though that's nigh impossible now.
I am, however, hanging out to see the Aussies take on the Poms on Thursday.
If it gets shown.
The England flogged us during the Ashes, so I hope it's time for the World Cup defenders to exact some vengeance. Though, yeah. Unlikely.
The whole thing is about five weeks shorter than the last men's World Cup. I think the lads need to take a leaf.
Incidentally... Fox Sports 2 is now showing a Geelong v Collingwood game. Hmm.
