Cricinfo’s conference in Goa

It doesn’t work very well, no idea why. Erm…I’ll try it again in the week. If you’re a Cricinfo person email me if you want the JPEGs.

Beach cricket in Scotland

This is superb! On a beach near Fife in Scotland; even in August, Scotland can be a chilly place. But it”s always beautiful. I casino canada spent so many holidays in my youth on the west coast of Scotland – an incredible country. Check out the larger photo too.

Damn Jennifer and damn her beach talk. Damn her emails about the proximity of the beach to her flat and damn everyone, damn it all! I want to be on the beach playing cricket!

And damn South Africa and damn New Zealand for being so damn dull. Actually that’s bollocks, it’s a cracking Test match.

No it’s not a spelling mistake…I’m trying to be funny. Geddit? No, fair enough. This Indian is having a bowl on a beach, but the photographer says he’s a pitcher, or a “trower,” whatever a trower is. Who wants to tell him [the photographer] the proper terminology, or shall we sit back in smug satisfaction that we know the rules and he doesn’t?

I’m also loving this photo…sums up beach cricket. Great “thirds” too; sky, sea and sand.
