And a very happy Christmas to you both, hopefully your love for the game will be re kindled next year.
With all this talk of day/night cricket I believe I may be one of the few still around to have seen probably the first, this was at
Johnsons park Yeovil in 1958 between Somerset and Hampshire.
No lights of course and I think play started at 1.20pm with the normal intervals although Colin Ingleby Mckenzie insisted the tea break should be re named the champagne break.
As I was a Somerset supporter at that time it was less than pleasing that Hampshire won in 2 days by an innings.
Somerset112&115 Hampshire 207& 20-0.
During the match shack took his 1350th wicket.
With the new year shortly to arrive let’s hope for good cricket and sensible decisions in 2017.

Nice to see Carbs doing the BBL coverage today on BT/C5, looking well…

That’s great to hear. Fingers crossed he can make a full recovery. Today’s Torygraph says Mark Nicholas was taken to hospital in Australia with abdominal pain while working for Channel Nine at the Boxing Day Test but was in good spirits.

Being weighed down by all the money from his latest book…..I am about half way through it at the moment and good read.
The news on Carbs is really good to hear.
