Miserden Super 8s Cricket; the beginning.


It’s a beautiful day here, up in the heavens of the Cotswolds at the Miserden ground. The sun is burning the overnight dew from the outfield, the track is being rolled by a Bomag more accustomed to flattening tarmac and the anticipation of the 9 o’clock start is palpable. Most are agreed that the August Bank Holiday is blocked off every year for the annual Cricket Super 8s tournament, blessed with bright sunshine for its sixth year. To begin proceeding, The Crown & Sceptre of Stroud are taking on France Lynch’s King’s Head. Match reports will follow, and if you happen to be in the area, pop up for a pint in The Cricket Arms, enjoy a bacon sarnie and a romp on the bouncy castle. Kudos to Trott and Broad yesterday, and to young Amir; cricket looks set to be the winner this weekend.
