PERSEID METEOR ALERT: The Perseid meteor shower peaks Wednesday night. Caused by debris from giant comet 109P/Swift Tuttle, the annual shower sometimes produces more than 100 meteors per hour. This could be such a night. The best time to look is during the hours before local sunrise when the constellation Perseus is high in the sky. (Spacewaether.com)
Superb cricket from England and Pakistan, a game which England finally won. Woakes and Buttler batted really well together. Ben Stokes, a previous hero, has left the team to be with his father in New Zealand. Next match starts Thursday.
