Watching cricket under floodlights

Last night I took my wife and our 2 small boys to Lord’s to watch Middlesex play Kent in a Twenty20 Cup thrash – and Middlesex did indeed get thrashed by 60 odd runs.

But the floodlights, being used for the first time if I heard the announcer correctly, were fantastic and watching them rise slowly before play kept my boys amused for ages.

Great work MCC – now I can’t wait for the Twenty20 World Cup to begin in a few weeks time!
