I feel the pain. I really do. My money is on SP increase from now through to drill. Additional news in between too. I just don't think England cricket could beat that even if I could invest. Wish you well though.

When David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne were batting, cameras caught Archer in the field wearing a sweater tied around his waist.
It was chilly for much of the day so Archer decided he wanted an extra layer to protect against the cold but clearly he changed his mind and rather than running his vest off the field, he wore it in a slightly different fashion.
“Not sure I like that, put it on or take it off,” Aussie cricket legend Warne joked in commentary for Sky Sports as he laughed at the unusual image.
“You can’t just tie it around your waist. What’s that?
“I don’t reckon a clubbie (club cricketer) would do that either. What’s he doing?”
4:51 pmAugust 23, 2019 Random event changes the Test match
James Matthey Jofra Archer insisted his six-wicket haul on the opening day of the third Ashes Test at Headingley proved there was more to his game than raw pace alone.
The build-up to this match had featured plenty of talk about the physical threat posed by England fast bowler Archer, who by hitting Steve Smith with a vicious bouncer in the drawn second Test at Lord’s had ruled the star Australia batsman out of this match with concussion.
But Archer deployed his fearsome short-ball sparingly during a superb return of 6/45 in 17.1 overs as Australia, 1-0 up in the five-match series, was dismissed for just 179 after England captain Joe Root won the toss in overcast conditions on his Yorkshire home ground.
“I don’t need to run in and bowl 90 mph (145km/h) every spell to get wickets,” said Archer.
“I’ve shown that today. There will be times in Test matches you have to focus on hitting your length. There will be times to ramp it up as well but you don’t have to go into it every innings.”
Archer, the 24-year-old Barbados-born son of an English father, said conditions in Leeds dictated why he bowled fewer short balls than at Lord’s.
“I bowled a few, obviously to let the batter know they are still there but this wasn’t a short-ball wicket, it wasn’t as hard as Lord’s,” he said. “So it’s just get it on the full line and length and it got results today.”
Archer arrived at Headingley rather closer to the toss than England would have liked but its new spearhead, who came into the side after James Anderson broke down with a calf injury early during Australia’s 251-run win in the series opener at Edgbaston, is a cool customer.
“Actually I was early but there was a one-way street so I ended having to park in the car park behind the rugby field,” Archer said.
“I’m pretty relaxed. I actually don’t think I need to bowl in the warm-up at all. I bowl a few balls before we go out and that’s enough for me.”
Australia did manage one substantial stand in an innings that was finished inside 53 overs, with David Warner (61) and Marnus
A good deal in this market I think Moneyhawk. Just need a couple more. Some cash in so we can further tickle the HRZ. If that can work, so does the money flow. Been an absolute drain this lately but hoping it's getting better. Should get a good real of news flow going forward too.
