There is polite silence across the media about Geoffrey Boycott’s prediction , at 2343 hours GMT or 13 minutes into the 4th Test at Melbourne that, “I can’t see any way how England can win this Test from what I’ve seen so far.”
To which Jonathan Agnew replied, “But Geoffrey, they have only been playing for 12 minutes!”
“But I know these things, Jonathan. I am paid to know them.”
Actual result, England won by an innings and 157 runs.
“Close, oh Master, but no cigar.”
