Embedded text or transcript84 in the shade, drawing ink at boiling point, very few ideas and even those are coming out of the head steaming hot. Heat we are told, affects everybody in a different way. Some cricketers after being led out of the pavilion foaming at the mouth
Get fierce at the wicket and make a century. They like seeing other cricketers run.
Hardinge of Kent chose this time for making 139. Mr Hardinge says that he has never heard sweeter music
Than the ringing feet of the Leicestershire fieldsmen as they plodded after every one of those 139 runs.
At the conclusion of Hardinge's innings there was a ten minutes interval whilst the Leicestershire team
Poked their feet up in order to get them fit for some more plodding.
I have said that heat affects everybody in some different form or other. Tom Pinch has had a stroke which has sent him sane again. He refuses to run in the Royal Hunt Cup.
No Ascot for me, my top-hat hurts - so I'm going to sit at home and eat my bedding.
