Description

A village green cricket ground; fresh air, grass cuttings and a slight dustiness as the groundsmen prepared the pitch using a heavy roller. Aromas of last minute bat preparations with linseed oil and sweet creamy porridge reached us from the pavilion. ‘Play’ - first ball; slog-swept over square leg for 6! That tasted fairly spiky, spicy with a sour fruitiness. Fast forward. Rain stopped play and we enjoyed early tea; lemon meringue pie, macadamia nut cookies and Battenberg cake. Once play resumed, a corker of a delivery was met by a smooth, sweetly timed, delightful back foot cover drive finding the boundary.
