England had a successful weekend of sports.However the markets fell and by a bigger margin that Australia. Does this mean my theory about the relationship between sport and the markets is wrong? I still stand by my theory. Twenty20 can go in any direction and it is hard to predict a result. It just does not make sense that Netherlands was able to beat England but England thrashed Pakistan who has the best T20 record. Now Test cricket is the real thing. People may think it is boring but you need a lot of talent to succeed in it. I do not know why people complain about cricket. A NFL game is made up of four quarters of 15 minutes. This one hour of actual play time takes about four hours to play. No wonder they have cheerleaders. Now equate that to a test match and it will take about 20 days to finish one game!!!
