PICK OF THE DAY.

Live cricket Sky Sports 3, 3.30pm NOT long to go now until the Ashes - just enough time to get HD sorted out, writes Steve Davies.

According to Nasser Hussain on one of those overly pompous trailers that were mildly irritating six months ago but are now positively excruciating, get Sky Sports HD and you can actually see the cricket ball rotating in flight.

So as part of my Ashes package but during one of those tedious parts of Sky's cricket coverage, such as the lunch break, the first hour of a Paul Collingwood innings or any part of a David Gower question, they'll be showing me what a cricket ball does, only painstakingly slowly.

Incredible. When I get this set up I may just pay Sky a little much-deserved bonus as a way of saying thankyou.

Anyway, today's willowwielding fireworks come from Sabina Park, Jamaica, where West Indies and India lock horns, or whatever teams do when intertwining in a cricketing context.

All you Johnny-comelatelys who've had their heads turned by this Twenty20 caper with its dancing girls, overhead reverse scoops and commentators periodically screaming "start the car", might want to give today's action a miss, however.

This afternoon's fodder from Sabina Park is strictly for us cricket purists, those of us reared on the feats of WG, the Don and Alan Igglesden.

Yep, 50-over cricket will never die..
