Failing the Krepsinis test 

It's not cricket at least. But quiet rejoicing over Lithuania's 80-69 victory over Britain at the European Basketball Chamionships.

However I will be hoping for good UK performances in the rest of the games in Group A especially if these help Lithuania head the qualifying group.

Krepsinis (basketball) is very much Lithuania's national sport and my mother was in the stadium when Lithuana won the European title way back in the 1930's having played traunt from school to queue for tickets. And once again the finals are actually in Lithuania so it is a bit of a 1966 'coming home' monent to borrow an England football reference...
