Cricket's always had its seamy side, but it's still rather unexpected (and heartening) to find a team thriving in one of the most notorious parts of LA
, even if, sadly a proposed tour of the UK couldn't take place because of lack of funds.
American cricket is surely ripe for revival (yes, revival; after all, as the article mentions, the world's first international cricket match was between the US and Canada).
Also (sort of) cricket-related: the beginning of the end for R4 Longwave
, as they can't get the valves any more. A sad moment indeed, and not merely because I shall miss being able to get TMS on my radio, rather than online; it will also be a blow to people who could pick up R4 in various parts of Europe.
And I do hope that they tell the submariners why
Today's gone off the air...
