drought musings 3

Drought positive #3….
When the local water authority brought in stage 4 water restrictions on 9th December last, the council immediately banned the use of playing fields… running around stirring up dust is apparently not good for that brown crunchy stuff that used to be grass.
So there has been no district cricket this season.
To a non cricket lover that might be a good thing… but the positive I see is… our local team was in the middle of a two day match, the first day had been played before the ban. I'm thinking there's no way they'll ever be famous for their prowess on the pitch, but if the second day is played next season then those players will be reknowned for being involved in the longest game of cricket ever.
…might even get in the guiness book of records?
