Errol Fernando in his Regular ‘Bout’ with Gavin by Letter

Day one kept me glued to my television for 6 hours and it was good Test match cricket. When Pakistan chose to bat I was prepared to give a knighthood to the entire team and the management for the brave decision. Had they inserted I would have switched off my TV for the entire summer. England too made a good decision to bat against New Zealand and they are well on top. That game is all over.

Ashton Agar suffered a laceration to the bridge of his nose in Western Australia’s Marsh One-Day Cup clash against South Australia on Sunday after dropping a catch hit by his own brother at Karen Rolton Oval. Rated as one of the better fielders in the country, Agar ran around** to attempt a straightforward catch off his younger sibling Wes at mid-on but slipped and copped the ball right between his eyes. With blood on Agar’s face, teammate Jhye Richardson signaled for medical assistance as Wes Agar immediately ran over to check on his brother’s well-being.
