So I’m at a beach resort and I’ve spent the first morning lying in bed with the curtains closed: of course it’s a one-day-international cricket match keeping me there.
A strange morning, not only because of how I woke myself: Dhoni batted at number 2, staying at the crease for a long time and getting 95 runs before being caught. (I really wanted him to make his century.) Then Kevin Pieterson bowled an over and bowled out Harbajan Singh with his second ball. The Turbanater stood in the crease, as if in shock or disbelief, while Iron Bottom fulminated in the commentary box about the Laws of cricket! Truly extraordinary, vastly entertaining to me and probably of no interest whatsoever to most of you.
OK, I’m off in search of water, tea, breakfast a book and a place on the beach near to a TV!
