Fresh from the indignity of having his boots removed from the environs of the outfield of the EPPs first match against Gauteng, England’s most recent test squad call up finally took to the field today for an England XI.

In a rare spell of good weather in what has been an unseasonably wet period, in a rain curtailed match Mark was the most economical bowler conceding 24 runs in 10 overs.

Centurion,  South Africa – Colly gets his 171st one day international cap – an England record.

He celebrates this by inspiring the team to a 7 wicket victory with overs to spare, in their match today against South Africa.  With a stunning catch of de Villiers off of Anderson, the wickets of Amla and Albie Morkel 2@ 24   and 105 runs [his fourth century scored abroad],  he wins the Man of the Match award.

He also becomes England’s 2nd highest ODI run scorer.
