On the complete opposite, some of the conditions we've played in rain wise has been a joke. This summer was the wettest on record for 100 years and we ended up playing a re-arranged game on a pitch that was close to being a swimming pool while it was still bucketing down, just because we hadn't played in that long. I pity the Aussie fella who plays for us, he say in all his time back home he can only recall 1 game being called off for rain, then he moves here where we can barely get a match played.
Yeah, this. We played one game in constant driving rain. I was stumped by a yard or two, having ended up face-first in the dirt and soaked to the skin, and it was described as "like taking guard in a chicken curry" by the last over.
