I have thirteen minutes to write today’s post. And I just wasted two of those minutes logging into Twitter, Gmail, and WordPress. There has to be a better way!
An article yesterday from Andrew Miller was 50% wonderful and 50% of the usual IPL bashing. His musings on the County game were brilliant as usual (though writing articles about the pastoral beauty of County Cricket is like shooting fish in a barrel with a barrel sized fish annihilator) but then he ruins it by calling on the ECB to defend the “sanctity” of Cricket by limited the encroachments of the international game. It is a valid point, in some ways, the Sri Lankan series should be a real barn burner, but instead it is going to be 22 exhausted cricketers playing in English springtime mud. But why must he have a go at the IPL?
Note to Englishmen: you invented the game. Kudos. But time to let it go.
