Cricket Lovely Cricket!

How great it is to see the return of Test Match cricket to England and the comforting familiarity it brings of sitting around not watching any play because of the pouring rain and Stygian gloom.

There may not have been much cricket at Southampton today (lovely or otherwise) but I couldn’t resist sharing this bit of West Indies cricketing nostalgia in calypso form, vintage 1950, by Lord Beginner..

    How about the German 1974 World Cup Champions singing about themselves in a Schlager?

    There was an interview with Sonny Ramadhin in the Guardian a couple of days ago, since the recent death of Sir Everton Weekes he is the sole survivor of the 1950 win by the West Indies, their first over England.

      He ran a pub in Lancashire league country north of Manchester and his daughter married a Lancs player and begat another.
