Aroon writes with an intriguing proposition "Iíve just returned from India (on Sunday evening) and had a good time. I even got to play a game of tennis ball cricket in a small village in Maharashtra! The bowling went pretty well but the batting was a bit out of sorts!

Remember that I did say that I would ask in our meeting just before Xmas that Iíd try and find a team to play against. That group of guys would be very happy to play although it would be a bit of a trek, about 100 miles north of Goa and over 200 miles south of Mumbai. This was in my dadís familyís ancestral village so I was very happy to visit there, it is sort of in a jungle by a river. The nearest big town/city if you want to look it up on a map is Ratnagiri, which is about 45 mins drive away.

I realise that this may be a total and utter non-starter but thought I would let you know anyway and the locals enjoyed the idea of facing a foreign team! However they did suggest getting a district side out for this which was a bit worrying! Anyway it was a good trip and probably just a pre-pre season warm up!

If this does appeal please drop the Club Sec a mail.
