Good news that the cricket will be on Channel 4. No doubt you'll all be
up at 4 for a^H the toss ?
<beam> ers may not be much use on Indian wickets, but I hope I'm wrong.
Also 6N rugby on terrestrial TV - a weekend festival of sport. :)
I remember playing cricket as a child. The batsman stood with his legs
together holding the bat in front of him, and the bowler would throw the
ball at the bat with a view to either hitting batsman's legs or catching
the ball if the batsman struck it.
It pleases me no end to know that such an innocent childhood
entertainment is now televised.
Rugby? I saw it at big school. I recall boys grappling with one
another in the mud and then having a communal shower. Aha!, thought I,
an entertainment for faggots. So I was not interested.

When, once, reference was made to a statesman almost universally
recognized as one of the villains of this century, in order to
induce him to a negative judgment, he replied: "My situation is
so different from his, that it is not for me to pass judgment".
