|12:05 am - Anyone for ... cricket ?|
Ok, it's summer, and summer is the season for cricket (well, for me it is).
So I'd like to get a bunch of people together and play Park Cricket.
Park Cricket, of course, is almost, but not quite, entirely unlike
tea cricket, the basic idea being that we find a suitable park somewhere, play something involving a bat and a (tennis) ball (and probably stumps), everyone gets a turn, and hopefully everyone has fun.
("Fun" could also include finding a shady spot nearby and enjoying a picnic and entertaining toddlers and small children, of course.)
Anyone interested ? This is most likely to be on a Sunday morning sometime, probably in March (before Bub2 arrives, and while there's a reasonable chance of a nice day for it).
There are a few rule variations to think about - whether catching is one-hand-one-bounce, whether bowlers can bowl underarm, overarm or either, and if batting is "tip-and-run". I figure we can work that out on the day ...
