Cricket: It’s Still a Washout!!!
Date of the article May 20, 2019
Shortly after Gareth had bowled the opposition number three through his legs to take the second wicket in his first over, to follow up a nick through to the keeper – it happened. Gloomy clouds had been gathering since the tea break started to replace the pleasant fluffy wide variety that had formed a counterfoil to the blue of the sky during the early afternoon. The start was just a few drops, almost invisible unless they showed on the scorer’s screen or papers.

Cricket: It’s a Washout!
Date of the article May 9, 2019
A washout that was not just rain but hail too at about six-fifteen; the fourth time that rain had interfered with the Devils match against the Gloucestershire Growlers bringing it to an end. The home side was very disappointed as this meant their fantastic performance could not end as a win, with just 24 runs required and plenty of overs to spare. This was however not quite the washout of the week before when Metro had not been able to start their defence of the National League title in Yorkshire as the game was called off on Friday evening. A rearrangement is hoped for.

Love of the beautiful game!
Date of the article October 12, 2018
My love for cricket started to grow from an early age. I grew up in Pakistan in a village of 200-300 people, where the game of cricket was adored by all. I used to play in living rooms, dusty streets, grounds and slums across the country. It was a game for the rich and the poor but sadly, not if you were blind.
