After twenty odd years in retirement, a late cry off, and a moment of weakness on my part, led to me taking the field once again in an away cup game at Northop Hall in Wales. With somewhat less athletic prowess than may have existed all those years ago, it proved to me that cricket is still a game that can be enjoyed by those of all ages.
Ok, we lost, but I must confess to a great deal of pride (and enjoyment), in batting with my lad down at the bottom of the order. Never thought I’d see the day, but very glad I have 🙂 We both ended up not out at the end of the alloted overs, me with solid nought and my lad with a handful of runs.
Next obvious question is did I enjoy it enough to want to have another go? Well you never know 🙂
