Thrills and spills at the Super Series
We always suspected that this week would be full of intrigue and already the Stanford Super Series has not disappointed.
On the field we have already had four highly enjoyable matches, despite concerns about the quality of the pitch and the difficulty of catching the ball under the lights at the Stanford ground.
The best game of the week so far came on Tuesday night as England won a dramatic match against Trinidad and Tobago by a single run.
Off the field we've had the bizarre incident concerning Sir Allen Stanford himself, in which the Texan billionaire apologised to Kevin Pietersen and Matt Prior after pictures of him with Prior's pregnant wife on his lap were shown on the big screen at the ground.
Then as we were preparing to go on air on Tuesday we heard the news that England were down to just 11 fit players with a stomach bug sweeping through the camp.
We even heard rumours that a couple of the Middlesex players, also taking part in the Super Series, had been put on stand-by to make a dramatic England debut. Just imagine if something similar happens on Saturday morning.
Its also been great fun in the BBC commentary box, especially with the calibre of people we are fortunate to have this week. It is always a great thrill to work with one of cricket's greatest ever batsman Sir Viv Richards and we've also welcomed another former West Indies captain Jimmy Adams into the box, as well as fast bowling great Colin Croft.
For Tuesday's thrilling encounter we were joined by Middlesex pair Shaun Udal and Andrew Strauss. There was some good natured banter from the back of the box. When Strauss was explaining how he had found playing with the Stanford black bats, Udal shouted out "shame you haven't got any white marks on yours yet... except on the edge."
It must be a rather strange week for Strauss playing for his county whilst his international team mates are preparing for a potentially life-changing payout on Saturday.
Strauss had an interesting take on what might happen: "In some ways it could be like witnessing a train crash and it might be horrible to watch. On the other hand If someone plays a blinder we'll all stand up and applaud how he coped under such pressure."
Strauss, Shaun Udal, Sir Viv and others will be joining us again for the big match on Saturday on Five Live from nine - and if you'd like commentary on Middlesex v the Stanford Superstars then that will be on the BBC London website on Thursday evening from 2120 GMT. Before that on Five Live don't miss our Special Stanford preview programme featuring Andrew Flintoff, Steve Harmison, Chris Gayle and a host of other guests joining Arlo White and Jonathan Agnew from 2000.
