Cricket

Listening to the cricket commentary is one of summer's pleasures in England. The commentators are witty and wise and frequently bring a smile to my face. Last week I laughed out loud at one remark. Jonathan Agnew, commonly called Aggers, commented on a Pakistan fielder who was racing to stop a ball from reaching the boundary.  He said, 'Everything was moving fast apart from him over the ground.'
I was pleased that Pakistan won the third Test - they deserved it and I hope it will have brought some slight, light relief to that beleaguered country.

  1. Hubby played cricket as a lad - often I make the mistake of asking him to explain the game - a bit like asking him to explain anything mechanical - information overload! lol! Or is it just my brain is so small! Hmmmmm!!!!

    and yes, it is very entertaining, the kind of stuff the commentators come up with on the spur of the moment. Some of them have a tremendous sense of humour!
