A great day at the Rosebowl in Hampshire seeing the West Indies trounce Pakistan. Many thousands of Pakistan supporters blowing their trumpets continuopusly and waving banners and flags were up against a miniscule contingent of Windies enthusiasts blowing into their conch shells while equal sized portions of staid English neutrals and police and security goons to stop pitch invasions looked on. The Pakistani supporters were fantastic, real cricket enthusiasts, clapping and cheering every bit of good play from the West Indies as well as their own side and not seeming to mind one iota that the game was so one sided against them.
The day was marred by a biting cold wind, crappy car parking arrangements, and a wasp that bit me on the lip while I was eating my sandwich which necessitated a trip to the first aid tent as one entire side of my face swelled up like a balloon. I had to spend the rest of the day walking around holding my wobbly extra cheek in the palm of my hand. Horrible!
