Edgbaston Roller-coaster in Errol’s Binoculars

Errol Fernando to Gavin, 5 August 2019

For 3 long days I  kept wearing out my chairs and couldn’t take my eyes off the match. Constant changes of fortune, ebb and flow, but with the game equally poised.

A Straight Bat, Young Lad

May 20, 2018

So, says the occasional coach and ancient cricketer to a part-time cricketer at Kirinde in Sri Lanka.

PS:  the chair was not for me… It was the wickets.
