Good ones, I expect. Having spent a couple of hours in the car listening to Radio 4, first wittering on about there being no cricket, and then on the trip home to them talking not very inspiredly about Cook and Trott only being halfway there and still 9 wickets to go; and what with that being the end of a second rain-halved day already, not to mention the forecasts for the rest of the weekend; I wouldn't have given evens for it to be a draw. I'm surprised they managed to finish it.
