……..the start of the English first class cricket season!
M.C.C. v Durham at Abu Dhabi – I know the first game is not being played in England this year, but have you seen the weather forecast for tomorrow !
Okay, so picture on the left shows the great Australian batsman Victor Trumper, but he was a ‘great’ of the golden age of cricket (1890-1914) and the picture of him ‘jumping out to drive” taken by Bedlam at the Oval in 1902 is a classic. Another classical batsman is Ian Bell of Warwickshire and England.
