It's good to have SS back on board, but I share her concern about the season ahead. For the first time in years I have made no specific plans to visit Taunton, initially because I did not want to start booking things and then learning that there would be no cricket to watch and now because I am among the age group who may be confined to barracks for much of the summer. I shall find plenty to do at home as I always do, but will miss my weekly encounters with my grandsons and will be very resentful if the rules forbid me to take daily vigorous walks on the nearest common (even though I shall be in no danger of embracing everyone I meet.

We may indeed have to wait quite a long while for cricket, but I think about those of my parents' generation, for whom there was no first-class cricket in ten of the seasons from 1914 - 1945. Cricket recovered from the two long wartime breaks and will probably do so again, despite the efforts of some men in suits who seek to ruin the game we love.
