Let us hope they are in the act of producing a good fast wicket

All the sporting activities must be preparing for when all goes live again. Preparing like this must give them a good feeling
Bill Phillips: They must be itching to get back to playing again. I might well go to watch when they do
En ambiance c'est mieux !! sourires !
Bill Phillips: A sign of some sort of normality

Anything to get away from the house and the domestic chores
Bill Phillips: are you judging by your own standards comrade?
Great timing on their part. No doubt there are cricket tables in towns and villages all over the country being kept in trim (no pun intended) just in case they get to play f ew games this year.
Bill Phillips: They have all the moves

Didn't the fence get in the way when the players are trying to score goals or whatever they do in cricket?
Bill Phillips: I think village cricket may be different Alan

Bill Phillips: It is very dependant on good groundsmen Peter
Looks like a very soft wicket!
Bill Phillips: You are clearly a student of the game Tom

the cricket wicket?

: - ) that's a new one for me. i do so love the English language. it's too bad it was butchered by Americans.
Bill Phillips: Haha as we say there is no such thing as American English...there is just English gringrin . Cricket is a mystery to most Americans as American Football is to us
