Twenty20 Cricket...

Drew, a load of his friends, I and 20,092 other people headed off to watch Surrey take on Kent in the Twenty20 series at the Brit Oval last Friday night. In Twenty20 matches each side has just one innings per side, each innings limited to a maximum of (theoretically) 20 overs. The first innings starts at 5.30pm, the interval at 6.45pm and the second innings ends by 8.15pm. So it perfectly suits popping along after work for a couple of hours of fun in the sun. Only it wasn't particularly sunny it has to be said. It rained. Quite a lot. So much so that we retired to the pub for a while. Still, when play resumed Surrey 167-6 (15 overs) beat Kent 144-8 (15 overs) by 23 runs maintaining their position at the top of the South Division.
