I'm researching before writing a book about the abandoned test in Antigua.

I would like to talk (by email) to anyone who was there or was affected by the ten ball test.

If you would like to contribute please get in touch.

Cheers

No -- I can't make my mind up whether to include the trip overland as well - and not sure who it would appeal to?

Perhaps I might give it some thought - difference with the Shortest Test one is that the Association of Cricket Statistitions are interested in it, so I have a ready market.

I might have an email round some publishers see what they think - or maybe just do it for Corridor or here or somewhere similar?

Anythoughts from anyone would be appreciated.

Cheers

I'm sure that an account of your experiences in India - especially including the overland trip to get there - would be exactly the kind of thing Clarky would be looking to put in the Corridor.

Because the Corridor is primarily aimed at away fans, travel experience stories always go down well.

Agreed that it sounds as though your India travels incl getting to and from the place would be an interesting read.

Regarding the abandoned test, it was a kind of surreal experience. I was in the ground early so no probs for me gettin in. Game started with what can almost be described as a county cricket crowd in numbers. Then a few times the bowlers pulled up; it wasn't too clear why. Then it rained and the covers came on. Then they came out again, a few balls later everyone went off! We blagged into the Party Stand after a while and sat in the sun; about 10 of us ran on the pitch to take a look at the runups - which by then had been dug out and quite literally were sandpits. Then about 3ish the bar started to shut, hatches coming down one by one. The English weren't too bothered; the locals were fuming. A strange day indeed.
