Shortest ever county championship match scheduled for 4 days

I saw the whole match of Essex versus Northants, even if it was only 96.3 overs (see article in The Cricketer). There have been shorter matches (see scorecard) scheduled over 3 days (see tweet by @davidaw69).

Cricket as the UK pandemic eases

Glad to return to the Home of Cricket yesterday. I even wore a red jumper (as it was RedforRuth on day 2).

Hartlepool will again vote for British values

The Labour Party's strategy has come into focus with the loss of the Hartlepool by-election (see New Statesman article). The Hartlepools (see Wikipedia entry) first became Labour in 1964. I think Britain's current conflict about its values will again be decided in favour of liberty, responsibility and fairness.
