Still my birthday; still waiting for the bus.
Having become restless beyond belief, Matt, Mayur and myself walked to flat area of land on the hillside. On this land we set up our cricket pitch - primarily for the purpose of some 'arty' photos.
The wicket was a combination of very green and very dry. Half of the track was covered by thick wet grass, with the other half composed of drying red clay.
After taking a few pictures, we stopped due to rain and to assess the transport situation.
Having concluded that we had a real wait on our hands, we decided to play some more cricket. Matt fielded, whilst me an Mayur took an over each with bat and ball. I accumulated five runs, but lost them all by getting clean-bowled with the final ball of the over - Mayur racked up a steady three and won!
