It is amazing how the public steadfastly refuse to attend the third day of a match when so often the last day produces the best and most exciting cricket.
Square cuts which ordinarily would have flashed to the boundary earned only two, and I believe that those two innings would have been worth 150 apiece in a county match.
Those were the great days when plenty of amateurs could spare time for cricket.
It was never a policy of the Kent team that the pitch must be occupied all day after winning the toss.
Still, I believe it is only a passing phase and cricket will one day produce an abundance of great players.
