Just the one cricket match over the month in England over the summer. A kind invite from Dan Edington to join a match of Putney Dads against each other. Having been diagnosed with a mild hernia which would at some point need treating, I hid in the slips for 20 overs as our opponents creamed off 130 odd. Sadly our chase fell a good 40 runs short, and I barely contributed with the bat, but it was good to play at The Bank of England ground again which is so well maintained and a pleasure to have a game on.
The highlight of the game was seeing old acquaintance Olly Slack take to the field at no.9. Bowled through the gate first ball. It happens. “I’ll be talking that ball up for a long time yet”, he said with the inimitable Slack smile broad across his Wandsworth face. Good fun.
