Wickets, Wickets and Wickets!!!!!!

Of course I am referring to the tumbling wickets at the Oval. I went yesterday to meet up with people I went to school with we were reliving when as spotty adolescents we went to the first three days of the famous Oval test of 1968. A memorable match for a variety of reasons. It was of course the Test Match I have written about before when we ended up in the England Dressing Room.  I took the civilised transport option and travelled up by train. I met the Cotterells on the train who are Joe Root’s in-laws so we had plenty to chat about. An exciting day’s cricket where if you blinked you missed something!

I am off on the train again tomorrow to Hitchin (my old home town) to meet up with people I was at school with. Some of who I haven’t seen for 50 years!!!!
