There is not, truthfully, a whole lot going on today in the world of cricket. I was thinking about writing a blog on Saturday, mostly to discuss Sachin’s maiden T20 century, and even more importantly, Kochi’s impressive chase of Mumbai’s 182. And now I am wishing I had, for two reasons: 1. The moment is gone, I cannot write about it now with any passion and 2. It would have given me an excuse for phoning in today’s post.
As seen above, Kochi do play again today, so at the very least I will have a match to follow as I seep my way though the day.
In other news, well, Sri Lanka picked their captain for the summer series in England. And while that really is neither here nor there, it does get me at least a little more excited for what should be a glorious summer of cricket in England. County Cricket, plus tours of the country by both Sri Lanka and India. Hopefully, both series will be memorable ones, as memorable as India’s lovely spell in England in 2007.
Finally, it seems the boys over at the Wisden Cricketer have started a new website, supposedly a “cricinfo for
white people English cricket”. Seriously, though, it boasts several of my favorite cricket writers and what seems to be (so far) decent coverage of the County game. I am looking forward to seeing how it develops.
And, that’s that for today.
