  1. It’s a pity the Irish Times and Independent, plus the others, don’t put out a little booklet on the rules of cricket when Ireland play in the big tournaments. Most of the reason we don’t watch those matches is we don’t get teh rules.
    Yes we get the throw it, hit it, catch it,// throw it, miss it, // throw it, hit it, miss it. But we don’t get all the finger wagging from the attendant in the white coat. (an intended connection to hospitals of a certain type ?.)
    It would be particularly useful when playing England. We, like India, and perhaps other areas would rather enjoy trouncing them.

  2. When I got married in 1983, my wedding present from my wife was John Arlott’s “How to watch cricket” – it is excellent reading!
