Shall we watch the ODI? Nah, let’s kick a football around the park

I was coaching on Wednesday night.  I managed to find regular excuses to return to the club, to collect another piece of kit and to sneak a look at the telly and to keep an eye on the score in the 4th ODI between England and New Zealand.

We finished at 8, and with England needing another 150 in 20 overs or so, I expected the players to come into the club to watch the game.  Five minutes later, they were back out on the park, playing football.

Live international cricket lost out to a kick around.
