Hey, Mr Postman

As the TV cameras panned round to the huge swathes of empty seats in the Lords Pavilion, you could only assume that the Postal Workers strike on Friday meant that 80 percent of MCC members didn't receive their tickets for today's ODI. There can be no other reason for such a pathetic turn-out at the 'Home of Cricket'.

After all, the guys in the 'blood & pus' coloured ties are cricketing experts - the sort of people you'd expect to turn up for any international event at their home ground - especially as they don't even have to pay for their tickets.

On a related note - the Oval members area was totally packed for both 20/20 internationals last week.
