WORLD CUP DIARY: Beach cricket

Remember all those Sportstar snaps of cricket on the West Indian beaches? Well, we participated in a spot of beach cricket yesterday. At the beautiful beach behind the Hilton. Some of us with a group of British kids with the Australian cricketers (including Glenn McGrath) and some of the English cricketers watching on. Umpires Billy Bowden and Simon Taufel were also part of the audience, as was match referee Ranjan Madugalle. Had fun. Didn't do particularly well, but it really was about the experience.

And today, in another hour or so, we head for Foul Bay Beach, where we have a match lined up against former West Indian cricketers/legends. Some calypso music and refreshments and a barbecue have also been promised. Will let you know how it goes...
