Chilling at the Cricket: Part One - My Photos...
If that IS actually true, these are for you.
Maybe you'll recognise some of your cricketing heroes here.
Your cricket team was recently in my hometown playing against the New Zealand XI and I got to spend a very pleasant few hours on the side of the field.
Or who was batting besides the fact that he was more than likely a kiwi...
They both seemed to have come down with some kind of bug over the last 36 hours and it's a mystery to me as to what has caused it.
Here The Jord was escorting The Frog to the toilet. I love my 'Helper Jord' - that big age gap came in very handy!
And for my SA friends - don't worry, the toilets were about 20m away. I could see them most of the time. Except for the time they actually spent in the loo - hold on... I hope there isn't a connection with the mystery bug there!
Back to the Pakistanis.
This photo and the following photo are of the same delivery.
...and managed to pull every muscle in my shoulder and upper arm!
Not doing that again!
Just thinking about how you cannot let your children out of your sight in SA - I don't think we could live there now.
There is an internal danger radar built into every South African that I think The Man and I have lost in the last two and a half years...
That underlying sense of paranoia that any South African earning above the poverty line lives with on a daily basis...
You know what I'm talking about?
You have to be a South African. Who has emigrated...
Very obviously a pro!
Anyway, next post will be The Man's photos.
Prepare yourselves for a shock!
