Despite travelling over to West Mersea with a full-strength team, the weather once more denied several of us our first cricket of the season. With respect to the oppo (they did give us an early tea after all) their pitch would have given 30 rugby players cause for concern, so us delicate cricket players chose to go watch the IPL instead.
Unfortunate that for the 2nd time in 3 weeks, we travelled all the way not to even get changed, but here’s hoping that we’ve now seen our share of matches called off for the 1st half of the season. Next week (19th May) 1st home league match for 3 years ! & a Beer Festival !!
