I've been training at the indoor nets since January, each week thinking "... another week closer to the season".
Now, finally, the league starts on Saturday and I'm a sure bet to be opening the batting for the first team....things don't get better than that!
So what does my so called friend do? He decides to have his stag do on the exact Saturday I've been keeping clear for months!
I've known about this for months, but as the day approaches I find myself continually thinking of excuses, hoping that by some miracle his wedding will be called off! Maybe his girlfriend will leave him, or perhaps she'll catch him with someone else.........if only!
Does that make me a bad person or just a cricket fan?
