The first cricket match of the year

I can now declare summer to be officially here. It might not be quite as warm as it was a couple of weeks ago, but this afternoon I came across a glorious sight in the park: the first cricket match of the year. All right, it’s technically not the first cricket  I’ve seen this year as I saw a  few snippets of the IPL when I was in India, but nonetheless it was a very  welcome sight. I didn’t stay to watch long as I wanted to continue my stroll, but it really put a smile on my face. Such things remind you that, no matter how grim or screwed up things may be getting, there will always be a few things you can rely on. It also reminds you that long, hot days are just around the corner. I daresay a balmy summer is the very thing the country needs right now.
