London, (ANI): British singer lily allen has confessed that she is obsessive about cricket, and just cannot stop talking about it all the time. Allen, 24, who was spotted cheering at the Ashes during England"s victory, also revealed what she found so fascinating about the game. “I am obsessed with cricket - I twitter about it all the time. I played in Holland on Friday, got on a bus overnight and then drove to The Oval on Saturday," the Sun quoted her as saying.
“I was trying to listen to the cricket in Amsterdam. I was screaming: 'Australia are all out!" “I first got interested in cricket about the time I heard Freddie Flintoff had a wee in the Prime Minster's garden at Downing Street. “No, seriously, I followed the 2005 Ashes - my dad is really into it and used to play. The girls would sit in the pavilion making sandwiches and the boys would play cricket.
“I"m an entertainer and my shows last an hour and it"s all very quick - life in the fast lane. “But I"m not into one-day cricket or Twenty20, I"m into Test matches. I love the five-day slog. “I think the Ashes should be seven or nine Test matches rather than five. It should be all-out war all summer. “I"m a traditionalist. I like the beauty of the game, the whites against the green, and the slow pace. I like so many things about cricket," she added.
