But just the other day my old chum Jack Colbert gave me a book of cricket jokes and one joke stood out. It went something along the lines of a cricket fan only realises in October that his wife left him in May. It made be chuckle anyway.
My best two days of the summer were at Birkdale Cricket Ground watching my team Notts beat Lancashire. Trouble is Notts did not win a trophy this year whilst Lancs became County Champions, but there can’t be a cricket fan in England who was not glad to see Lancs win after so many attempts.
