Maybe I am desperately out of touch, but I played and watched cricket throughout my childhood but did not live in a house with a television until I was thirty-three. I might even venture that not having cricket to watch indoors, I was all the more interested in it out of doors.

You are desperately out of touch I'm afraid. Even with the youth of Oman nothing exists unless it is on TV because unless it is on TV it is not on social media and therefore they never hear of it.

They don't know what 'outside' is because when they are 'outside' they are only looking at the screen of their Smartphone most of the time anyway.

Pembroke County cricket clubs Carew and Cresselly have fallen out over an early declaration that decided the Division One title. [www.bbc.co.uk]

Now that does sound familiar. The declaration I mean.

I saw that - would've posted it, but wasn't sure how, and I knew somebody would. I guess they'll be kicked out of the competition, precedent and all that...though I doubt they went to the trouble of calling the authorities first and checking it would be ok...

Some will be pleased to note that Australia lost to Bangladesh earlier today. Others will assume that this will make them so angry that England will face a hammering in the next few months.

Still others may assume that the most likely eventuality is that it will have no material effect whatsoever on the Ashes series. Australia are accustomed to losing in Asia so I don't imagine that they will have been particularly surprised or enfuriated. They usually play spin well in their own backyard, though, and so I don't think that Mo should be especially encouraged. Mason Crane certainly shouldn't be.

It looks very nice, though I like the ground at Ventnor better.

If we all put £1 in the pot for every post we make on here we'll have enough to fund the Grockles County Cricket Ground by the end of the season

Could be a giant stadium if we get relegated.

Ireland's ODI v the West Indies abandoned without a ball being bowled despite bright sunshine from well before the start of play and much of the morning. Couldn't fault the groundstaff who had been working from 4.30am to try to dry the Stormont outfield after Aileen had dumped a fair amount of rain the previous night.

Ireland may have been granted Test status but they won't receive enhanced ICC funding to reflect that for another six months. Cart before the horse? If they don't have funding in place to improve drainage over the winter then an inaugural Test next summer could prove a washout.

JP Duminy has announced his retirement, with immediate effect, from Test and first class cricket.

So y'all can put your Kolpak cheque books away

JP Duminy had strong West Country connections, playing for Devon and top scoring against Lancashire when when Minor Counties were still allowed into the 50 overs cup competition (whatever it was called in those days).

Somerset might just have been interested in a Kolpak signing.

Isn't it still called the Gillette Cup? It is as far as I am concerned - and most people know what I mean.

And when J P Duminy played in that one game for Devon (2003) there were no less than 4 players in the same side who had played for neighbours Somerset.

I met an ex of his (Duminy) in the pub the other week. Lovely girl - spoke very highly of him. Shame he's retired from all cricket.
