Sandcastles At Dawn
So with a Test match cancelled due to a bad pitch, England are now left twiddling their thumbs. But NWG has been thinking and instead of wasting the day sitting in the dressing room and playing cards, she's come up with a way to allow for a result to be reached. And today.
NWG proposes a sandcastle competition between England and the West Indies to be judged and adjudicated by the Umpires (they should have to earn their money at least).
The most complicated wins.
Or the tallest wins.
Or the one with the most turrets wins.
Or the one featuring a cricket field, complete with batting square wins.
Or the one NWG decides she likes the most wins (although wouldn't technically be fair, as she would definitely choose England, but not if Ryan Sidebottom made it).
If only Stanford was interested in sandcastles, he could have come up with a winning prize fund instead of NWG only being able to offer a bottle of beer (still, beggars can't be choosers).
Still, it will keep them busy at least.
It could even be dragged out for five days, with each day becoming more and more intricate. NWG can't help but feel this is really and truly an excellent idea.
