i've not picked up a bat in anger since leaving school 5 years ago, bar a couple of knock abouts in the park with uni mates. Cricket being a summer sport kinda didnt fit into my uni timetable, as i'd taken up hockey/football (then promptly left uni before the cricket season started)... as the years went on, even they fell by the wayside for more focus on traditional uni sports: Extreme Drinking and Drunken Pool.
Been tempted to go down to my local Cheshire County League side and have a try out, but i'm worried that after 5 years i'd be laughably bad (bowling down the hall with a bouncy ball cant have kept me in form! As for batting i'd probably be even worse)
It'd be nice to play again, even if it was just to keep me in shape, but i'm not getting my hopes up, i'm 23, not played in years, and i wasnt too hot in the first place (although i think mentally i'm more aware of the game and how to play better, so i reckon i'd be a much better player now)
