A new age

I listened to that American property developer's version of cricket for a lot of money the other night. He called it "Twenny twenny for twenny" (England called it twenny ten for nowt). Indeed. This laughable fiasco was meant to be the future. In fact, any student of the history of the game will tell you that this is just about exactly what it was a couple of hundred years ago when Thos. Lord set his ground up on Dorset Square - mercenary teams taking on all-comers for cash, or more usually a large amount wagered on the side.

I have an idea for baseball. Eleven a side, two innings each, flat bats, some sticks stuck in the ground to aim at, 6 home runs for clouting the ball straight into the bleachers (and we'll call those stands as well). Believe me guys, this'll go down big in India.

What election?
