Marcus Trescothick has started blogging. Well, his ghost has, anyway, or at least his biggest fan has. It’s all rather odd, but mildly entertaining, including things such as:
Well it started very badly, we sort of pulled it almost together in the middle, and then it started to fall apart again at the end.
Mostly it was long and very very hot. (aparently they clocked 40 deg during the afternoon). It was good practice; we’re going to have a lot of very long hot days in the field over the next month or two so we needed to see what it was going to feel like. But our batting is currently such a worry that I would have prefered to have got them out much quicker and give ourselves a day and half to really dig in and get some practice at getting runs.
Don’t they teach them how to spell in their “media training” things these days? Although, quite impressed with the excellent use of that semi-colon.
UPDATE: I’m officially concerned. Read some of the comments here. There are Mark_Bouchers, Stephen_Flemings and all sorts. All a bit odd, really!
