I said I would do it and I did. I even have (as you can see) a confirmation from ‘The Times’ that they got my letter. Whether they print it is another matter. But I have got the ball rolling.

Please support me. Spread the word. Thanks.

To make it worse about 6 seem to having their monthlies and the others act as if they are having some wicked morning sickness.

This is NOT fair on Sri Lanka. It denigrates their performance — though Chandimal’s catch to dismiss Dorothy Bravo was World Class in any match.

This is CRAZY. The World’s First Men vs. Women cricket Test Match.

Let me tell you it does NOT work. It is a different league.

That Sri Lanka managed to score 848 runs doesn’t matter because the West Indies girls dropped at least 20 catches.

This is a bloody travesty.

This week I am going to write a letter to the London ‘Times’ asking for the ICC to displace the West Indies from International Cricket. There is NO nation called ‘West Indies’ and significance and beauty of International cricket is that it is played between Nations.

Doesn’t Anybody Go To Watch Sri Lanka Super 4’s Twenty20 Matches At The Venue?

I don’t normally watch any domestic cricket, from any country, preferring to get my daily fix from international games, ideally Tests and failing that ODIs.
But, until we get the DVR-like 30-day ‘Catch Up TV‘ feature on the Skybox TV, I have to watch what is being ‘broadcast’. Today TEN was focused on the Sri Lanka Super 4’s Twenty20. I had never even heard of it since I am not that partial to T20 — unless the West Indies are batting.

So I ended up seeing parts of two separate matches, both from the R. Premadasa Stadium (which I used to know as the Oval). In both cases the stadium was empty. I didn’t even spot a dog. I used to go to British county games, mid-week, in the 1970s (though I was supposed to be working at IBM). There wouldn’t be many folks around but there was certainly at least a 100 more for those games than I saw at the Premadasa. That is pretty bad, especially for a T20. Yes, I am sure Sri Lankans have had a surfeit of International cricket over the last few years and now, as opposed to when I was growing up (when Ceylon did not have TV), they can always watch it on the telly. It is kind of a shame. International players in an empty stadium. Some pretty decent cricket too. If nothing else, we can belt a cricket ball (better than most).

Premadasa moderately populated for what looks like an ODI. Today, in marked contrast, all these stands were empty and I mean not a soul in sight, not even a stray dog — never mind the proverbial ‘a man and a dog’.

Notice the Frank Hornby 150th birthday, UK-only Doodle I talked about.

They have reused the International Mother’s Day Doodle that appears on May 26. On May 5 they used for Mother’s Day in Ireland.
