Tanks for report, Beefy.

If it's any consolation, next weekend it is going to be an unbearable 37 degrees, whereas for the match it is merely 27 degrees, maybe getting as high as 32 on the final day.

Exchange rate of approx 4derham to pound.
The food shop we found,was 8 Derham for two cold drinks,samosa and biscuits.
He will make a fair bit out of us,at the moment he arrives on a push bike,probably a flash car by end of game!
The ground also has a nursery ground behind which looks being used,so locals arrived mid afternoon watching game from the grass bank.

Be confusing if Durham were playing there...

you have conveyed the apparent ramshackle nature of things there gloriously.

Well done, mate.

Enjoy the sunshine.

I got a bit of colour yesterday in Nooorf London, watching Saracens demolish Bath, but I bet nothing to compare to the shade you'll be upon return.

See you soon.

4 Durham's = 1 Middlesex pound.

Sounds about right after the ECB rescue package.

While this was a good read it has not whet my appetite in any way in thinking I wish I was there.

Interesting Robbo had a bowl day 1
