What They See

Its been a long break, I know, but I’ve been using my other blog, and focussing on contemporary county cricket amongst other things. Thought it was time to do some more here, though I’m making no promise of the rate.

They come to see Botham,
They come to see Imran,
They come in their thousands each day.

They see Botham bowling,
They see Imran hooking,
They see more of Chris Tavaré

They see Pakistan strong,
England struggle along,
Then see wickets arrive in their bunches,

They see innings collapse,
Irresponsible bats,
And the visitors rocked by those punches.

They see Gower sublime,
The blonde master of time,
They see Randall unique with the bat,

They see Willis steam in,
England cruise to a win,
But at Birmingham one expects that.
