Some Big Questions to be answered in Big Cricket when the new season starts. Should Flower stay – or should he go? Should KP go – or should he stay? Should Cook … well you get the idea, and you probably have some answers.
But, noticing today that the cherry blossom is already in bloom around the bowling green
and catching a glimpse of the scoreless but sunlit scoreboard at Fairfield Road through a gap in the hedge
some other questions occur to me.
Will the mild Winter mean that the sycamores and silver birches at Grace Road will be in leaf (unusually) for the start of the Season? Will the daffodils in the beds in front of the Pavilion be in bloom? Will there be a fine sheen of pollen on the outfield at Fairfield Road?
And I find I care far more about the second set of questions than the first.
