Today a great cricket test between South Africa and England at Newlands, Cape Town propelled the game to number 2 on Twitter trends. Cricket is one of the few sports you can genuinely follow via text commentary alone and so is very well suited to Twitter. Football radio commentary can be pretty good but it doesn’t work in text. You have to watch rugby. Nerves are shot after that game. 5 days of combat came down to the last minute, the last ball.
