I've not had a massive outdoors day today because of cricket net practice; I just went and had a cup of tea at the park while listening to dear old Radio 4 as usual. There's been a fair bit of rain overnight, and the pansies were glittering with droplets, their monkey faces almost drooping with the weight of water.
So yes, I did feel my hip was up to cricketing, and thus I had my first proper bowl of pre-season. I came through ok, although I'm a bit sore now. I was n't exactly going full pelt, but at least I was mainly accurate.
My batting was as usual shaky early on, but better when I could get my feet moving.
To say I walk and run so much, it's odd I can't get my feet moving when I'm batting.
