Any lovers of the old leather on willow here? I may be a Scot but have a goodly drop of English blood on my Mother's side and me old Grandad, a Londoner, loved his cricket and played too. I'm thoroughly enjoying the current test series against Pakistan and find their rise to prominence despite not playing at home for such a long time, a bit of a fairy tale story akin to that of Leicester City FC. Today's play in the third test leaves the match very finely balanced and I had a grand day in the garden clipping and shaping topiary with traditional hand shears and the summery sounds of TMS filtering through. What more could a body want? So then, any of you good fellows take an interest or even play a bit?
