The Village Cricketer had the pleasure of  playing alongside Phil Johnson, cricket writer and representative of Elstow Cricket Club, in Monday’s Bloggers’ Ashes match. Phil took a fine catch to remove the Michael Slateresque opening batsman (opener slogged it straight up in the air, Phil ran back 20 yards and held the catch coming over his shoulder).

Elstow must be a good bunch, not only did they get to appear on Cricket AM, they are hosting their own Ashes special event on 25th and 26th July.

Uncle Jrod is captaining Australia (again) and there are still spots in the Aussie team available. Click here for more details.
