Sun: A new sunspot is emerging in the sun's southern hemisphere, right here. So far it is small and quiet, posing no threat for strong flares. If the region continues to grow, it will likely be assigned an official number AR2802 later today.
Stoke drew 0 – 0 (yet again) against Reading. If we had lots of money we couldn’t buy a win. Norwich this coming Saturday. They are top so it will be tough.
England beat India by 227 runs before tea on the last day. Splendid bowling by Leach and Anderson did it
