    A Hove occasion

    Unusual for me - but that's what holidays are for, breaking from the usual - to spend an evening at a cricket match. So, my first visit to the County Ground, Hove, first taste of the Twenty20 Cup, was rewarded by sunshine and a storming performance by Luke Wright (nine fours and six sixes from just 48 balls). Unfortunately Hampshire were never going to match Sussex's first-half performance, the half-time entertainment was rather feeble (Majorettes reduced to just four due to various injuries), the corporate beer pricey and tasteless, and it got a bit chilly second half. So overall a typical happily quite-satisfying English summer sporting evening. Tomorrow: France comes to London, a quite different proposition.
