It was elder son's second ever game of proper cricket last night, for his under 10's side. The game was held at the Old Deer Park in Richmond, a lovely setting. He's pictured bowling: an unusual action that borrows from both Thommo and Murali, but it's remarkably effective. It was freezing cold, despite the evening sunlight that occasionally poked through the clouds, with a biting wind. His first ever game was on Monday night, which I missed because of the Glenfiddichs. And if two cricket games aren't enough for one week, today he was playing in a football tournament at Griffin Park. It's a nice life if you are nine years old.

I warmed up with the remainder of a sensational Jamet Cote Rotie 1999, opened on Wednesday evening. It's drinking well but has a long future ahead of it. One of the best CRs I've ever had.

Lovely picture Jamie and one which your son will appreciate when he is older. The Old Deer Park Ground is one of my favourite places to watch cricket,and the standard when Richmond first team is playing,quite high.

Yes, Keith, it's a lovely ground - and hosts a 20/20 county match each year, too - which I hope to get my boys to this year.
