Since I can watch Indian cricket (via the garbage ‘Hotstar’) I have seen Mayank Agarwal score 583 Test runs in 5-innings over the last 2 months — 4 against South Africa and one against Bangladesh. That is a lot of runs and included 2 double centuries, 215 against South Africa & 243 against Bangladesh. True that these were not against the stellar of sides — South Africa right now playing like girls and Bangladesh isn’t exactly known for its firepower.

His Test stats are impressive: 8 innings, 6 of which were over 50.

Yes, in time bowlers, carefully studying the videos, will work out his weaknesses. But, for now he is dynamite to watch.

Some of hitting, once he was past 150 was amazing — breathtaking. I was in awe.

Touches of Viv Richards & Zaheer Abbas. They, i.e., the Indians, have rated him highly in their domestic cricket. Yes, I saw him in the IPL too.

He is exciting to watch.

Just wanted to share this with you since many of you may not get a chance to see the India v Bangladesh series.

Snow Blower, Unassembled, Is In The Garage — Instruction Manual Is Confused (Prior To Even Becoming Confusing).

It is in very good good company.

Well, it proved to be less daunting than we had feared — i.e., that of unloading it out of the Nissan Quest and getting it into the garage. It was a multistep operation. We first slid it off the Quest onto a bank in the yard and then moved it across the driveway into the garage. Having two strong daughters helped. Couldn’t have done it without them.

Still needs to be assembled.

That the Instruction Manual gets its languages mixed up, mid-stream, definitely does NOT help. This is from the English printed manual that came with the blower

So, I went online. Yes, the parts are in English BUT look at the TITLE.

And this is ‘Cub Cadet‘ — Premium Branding. I don’t think so!
