Belated cricket news
"My deepest apologies for not having provided a live feed direct from the pitch in Sedlescombe straight into to your [George's] apartment in Berlin. I would have called of course, but what with you opting to drop off the grid in terms of telephones, I was foiled in my efforts!
As Simon said – we won. In fact we won handsomely. After a fine lunch provided by Mum and Dad at the the Brickwall hotel, and with a much missed sun burning high in an extraordinarily (for recent UK weather) clear sky, we won the toss and put the village into bat. After some early stubborn resistance, the village fell apart under a sustained seam attack from our very professional and disciplined line up of attack bowlers. They were all out for 137. In response and after a small wobble right at the top of our order, the Keeling batting held firm and we raced past their total with the loss of only 3 wickets and with more than 15 overs to spare. All agreed it was excellent to be able to repair to the pub early, for general merry making and celebrations."
