I am still here. I am still alive.
As mentioned previously in the space, the longer you go without posting, the more difficult it is to post. It has gotten to the point over the last few weeks that even visiting Cricinfo.com makes me break out in a stress related cold sweat.
But then, last night, I noticed that the first day of the first Bangladesh-West Indies test was on ESPN3, so in between episodes of Doctor Who, I flipped over and watched for a bit: and fell in love with the sport all over again.
The stadium was empty, and the cricket itself was by no means flashy or brilliant, but the pace of the game was there. There is just something special about test cricket on the sub-continent. Love it, love it, love it. If it wasn’t for work, I would have watched the entire day, all night long.
What is unfortunate about my hiatus (well, not quite a hiatus, as I have yet to decide if I am going to continue writing in this space), is that there is so much international cricket happening right now: India v England, South Africa v Australia, Pakistan v Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe v New Zealand… Plus a whole slew of Associate member matches and all of the Southern Hemisphere domestic leagues…I have missed so much, and I have missed writing about cricket.
Until Monday. Yes, I think I will write another post on Monday.
