Forget Football and the Euros, it's Cricket season; and perfect weather for it too.
My oldest, Kimbo, is a keen Cricketer, and plays for a decent Hertfordshire team. This last weekend he chalked-up his best ever score as an opening batsman. He and his fellow opener scored 112 between them, with Kimbo, at No 1, scoring the highest, by just 4 runs. He was eventually bowled LBW.
I like to think that it was me who encouraged Kimbo's love of Cricket. I would take him to watch Sussex, bowl at him in the nets, and got him a junior trial at Sussex CC (unsuccessful).
So, well done Kimbo. 58 is a pretty good knock;.... one to be proud of!
N.B. He did point out to me that his score was higher than any of the England players v NZ over the weekend; so maybe there'll be an opening for a new England player?
Well done darling! Papa xx
Yes, the England team seems to be in urgent need of help right now. P switched off in disgust.ReplyDelete
Kimbo IS available.Delete
Well done that lad. I imagining a pleasant English summer day with a match being played on verdant grass with tea and scones being served, or maybe a refreshing g&t.ReplyDelete
Cricket Teas are legendary; I often wonder if that isn't why he plays.Delete
Well done Kimbo. Haven't seen cricket in years. A reminder of as Andrew says of pleasant English summer days, men in white dotted around the green and refreshmentsReplyDelete
A lovely way to spend a warm afternoon; watching or playing.Delete
Excellent. In response to Andrew, amateur cricketers take their cricket very seriously. I lived with a near county level cricketer for 5 years, verdant grass and scones and teas just doesn't come into it.ReplyDelete
They always used to say that there are only three types of Cricket worth watching; Prep school, village, and test. But I think small club Cricket is pretty good too.Delete
