Your Week In (Summer) Sport

Poor Bangladesh. Two tests against England; two crushing defeats by an innings. You'd imagine the last thing they'd want is to play us again, but that's exactly what they've got to do - The Oval hosts the first of the NatWest International Triangular Series games next Thursday.

Since the two test victories over Bangladesh there's been a something of a brouhaha in cricket circles about the validity of their presence in Test cricket. Something that the Guardian's David Hopps quite rightly sets straight, arguing that not so long ago it was England with the atrocious Test record.

While on paper this one looks like an easy victory for England,

Bangladeshi coach Dav Whatmore has been talking up his side's chances.

We might be the underdogs against two very strong sides, but I'm looking at us to pinch a win or two.

A one-day game is a two-horse race, so I always tell my players to get in there and play to win.

Tickets to this one are from around £23 and can be bought via Surrey Cricket's website.

Meanwhile over at Queen's Club, the Stella Artois Championship is still going, where Come-On-Tim is making good progress on his way to being beaten by Lleyton Hewitt in the Semi-Finals.

In County Cricket, Middlesex who are currently playing Surrey at Lord's take on Glamorgan at Southgate next week starting on Wednesday. Tickets are £10 and games start at 11am.

For those of a more active persuasion, why not get out your rusty old bicycle and risk life and limb on London's roads by participating in one or more of the hundreds of events in this year's Bike Week (11-19 June).

Events range from getting your bike safety-checked to riding London's parks. Just go here, type in your post code, and find events near you. So there's no excuse!
