Summer means the cricket season, and although my body can no longer stand up to the rigours of playing I do still love to watch the game. On Thursday I was lucky enough to watch a NatWest T20 Blast game from the pavilion at Lord’s – the home of cricket. Both Middlesex and Surrey brought big international or ex international names to the fray, and the game went down to the last ball.
Eoin Morgan being bowled off a nick (grateful to good fortune that I got the bails flying up)
Azhar Mahmood bowling (very tidily as it happened)
Tillakaratne Dilshan who didn’t trouble the scorers with his batting, but also bowled a tidy spell
KP was there too, and with Alistair Cook’s woes who knows what KPs international future may be; here being bowled to by another ex International player – Stephen Finn
Australian Dan Christian is Middlesex’s overseas player this year:
Of course the star of the show was Lord’s itself:
