Today marks the first day of the First Test between Australia and Bangladesh, and if we had followed through with our plans and dreams, Nev and I would have been in Darwin this morning.
13 years ago, while playing at Jamberoo, Nev and I, along with some of our other teammates - Scott Usher, and Craig and Shane Acton - spent many an afternoon discussing the fact that we should pack in cricket in Australia, and move to Bangladesh. Sri Lanka was already a Test nation, and it appeared only a matter of time before Zimbabwe would also join the Test ranks.
Our logic suggested that, eventually, Bangladesh would also become a Test nation. Thus, if we moved over now, we would be established in the team when they gained Test status, and would become Test players.
Though discussed at length, we never followed through.
And so comes today.
Can't you just see it? P.Netherclift and W.Peters opening the batting for Bangladesh against McGrath, Gillespie and Lee. And then opening the bowling against Hayden, Ponting and Waugh.
What foresight we had in those murky days of Jamberoo Cricket.
Instead, we'll just have to watch, and wonder what could have been......
I spent the day at Anthony's watching said cricket, along with Shane and, for awhile, Steven. We went all day until 5.30pm without having a drink (probably a world record). Shane continued to be an annoyance. After flatly refusing to go and get us KFC, he was the first to raid the bucket when it arrived thanks to Anthony's generosity. A pretty lame and crappy effort!
Attended the KCC general meeting Friday night. My first one for 4 years where I wasn't the Secretary. It was actually enjoyable. The build-up to the new season continues, and new coach Randall Starr was there, and has some good plans. Could this be the year for Kiama Cricket?
