Another season is almost upon us. On Thursday the MCC take on Sussex in the annual curtain raiser. Am proud to say that I joined a number of other brave/foolhardy players for a fielding session on Sunday morning. The thermometer on the car read 5 degrees, and after a punishing couple of laps of the oval we took catches and did fielding drills for an hour. I still can’t feel my hands, but at least the sun was shining and we managed to finish before it snowed. Looking forward to the first pre-season games this weekend!
