Things we need this century that we didn't in the last

And I wouldn't be telling anyone about it, either...

You devious old devil, OB. This is cricket as Cold War, an escalating technological battle.

Dash it, sir! They've come to watch me bat, not you umpire!

(And a very sneaky bit of thinking, if we may say so, too :D)
