Life is full of questions
Posted Aug 3, 2000
I'm sitting here in an apartment in Austin, Texas, where it's very hot and sunny, and apart from a few thunderstorms last weekend, has been that way for a month or more. I'm listening to a webcast from the ECB website of commentary from the Old Trafford Test where there has only been 18 overs of play today because of rain. People here ask me how could a game that lasts for 5 days, where they play for 7 hours each day, and which is so dependendant on fine, sunny weather have evolved in England? It beats the hell out of me.
