    Cricket Without Boundaries

    On Christmas Day Radio 5 Live carried a special feature about an innovative and remarkably successful charity called Cricket Without Boundaries which combines cricket coaching in sub-Saharan Africa with AIDS/HIV education. The podcast can be found here. Worth a listen.

    Rather alarming
    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    I've played in such games. Our coach used to use them as training exercises (improves both fitness and cricket skills (particularly throwing/relay throwing).
    Sucks if your batting partner is a big hitter and fast runner. After running two nines in a row I had to fake an injury and retire hurt (I gave up the cigs eventually/peahearted).
