Since the series against India finished two weeks ago, ending the cricket season, I’ve felt like I’ve been floating on a becalmed sea – lost and directionless. You may have guessed by the fact that I’ve only been posting filler recently. I’m not the only one; Iain O’Brien took nearly two weeks to post his account of the final day of the 3rd test.
To save my sanity I have compiled the upcoming tours by the NZ team from the future tours programme and put together a long term schedule, in all its technicolour glory.
Its not looking too bad actually. A 20-20 lark coming up and then a tour of Sri Lanka in a few months time, which is a bit of a bonus at that time of year. Having a tour of Pakistan scheduled is not encouraging given that no one is going to go to Pakistan, but efforts are being made to ensure that the test series is played at least, quite likely in New Zealand. A bit of light relief when the Bangladeshis visit before the hard core assignment of the next 12 months, hosting Australia.
I’m away for a week in the sun. If you are wondering whether I am cheering the win, weeping at the loss or grizzling about the rain, I will be of course, just doing it offline.
In case you’re wondering why I’m not listing your site in the sidebar anymore, I’ve shifted my blogroll onto its own page: Links. Along with several non-blog sites and a selection of newspapers.
It’s not really supposed to be a definitive list, but if you think you should be there let me know. I’d also be very interested in hearing about other newspapers I could list or any other interesting sites.
I’ve pinched the schedule I put up at Mike on Cricket and given it its own page:
If you are looking for it in the future you can find a link to it at the very top of the page.
After a couple of years posting at Mike on Cricket, it is now time for me to strike out on my own, make my own mark, build my own empire. So here it is, my new blog:
So what can you expect at Crucket? Well, more of the same you were getting from me at Mike’s – half-informed, half-arsed half-analysis/half-flippancy, posted irregularly, un-proofread. Always about cricket, mostly about New Zealand. Blindly parochial, optimistic beyond all reason. Premium blog material.
I’m also hoping to work on the design of the blog over time, part of the reason for shifing from Blogger to WordPress. Maybe I’ll also get to add some functions to the blog to help us follow the cricket in New Zealand.
So thanks for visiting. I hope you’ll hang out.
