Starting young


All over the English-thinking world, cricket commentators and fans lament the damp and soggy weather that has reduced our beloved game, often wrongly accused of being like watching paint dry, into a game of watching grass dry; blade by tender blade.

But I have glad tidings of great joy for all fans – cricket has not been washed out everywhere.  In our back garden it’s alive and well.

As narrated to our special correspondent by Kitty (aged 1 3/4)

First a little batting stance practice

Hmm, lets put some spin on this ball.

… time to put my masterful throw into action?
July 055
Actually this running is fun…

Do I throw now? This isn’t how it looks when Dada plays?
July 064
Hee hee – he’ll never hit it now!

I suspect a little more practice might be needed.
