Today is the official first day of summer, according to Wisden. As is well known, I do not have one of those electric picture wireless things but even if I did own one I would never be a subscriber to that cock Murdoch's evil empire of greed so until the ECB sees sense and I can afford it, I will have to rely on the good offices of the BBC Test Match Special team (which is only really interesting when Geoffrey Boycott or Phil Tufnell - much better than one would think - are on).
Unfortunately, my strictly held principles mean I was denied the spectacle of Katherine Jenkins opening the proceedings with a couple of lethal looking bouncers.
Boom and indeed, boom.
