BBC SPORT | Cricket | Ashes 2005 | Live: England v Australia: "1538: Lee has made his intentions clear. He is going to pepper Giles with short balls, and goes round the wicket so he can angle them in at the England player's body."
...
"Giles fends the third ball off using his glove and it lands a couple of yards short of leg gully."

Exciting stuff today. What would the reader unfamiliar with cricket think of the above? Vivid imagery, what.

I think about 93% of the UK business community is watching this match live, either at home feigning illness or at work. Now would be a good time to launch a hostile corporate takeover or try to corner the market in something.
