Redesign and a reunification

Well, you will notice immediately that the look of the blog has changed a wee bit. Change log: The color purple has been replaced by a more sombre grey. Click on Home and see a brand new Featured Posts Slider. Amazing, eh? The 3 most recent posts appear in a […]

Legspin and England

I’ve just been reading about the England vs Pakistan series and the exciting sight of a leg spinner on each side. Yes, an English leg spinner! A sight as rare as a Posh Spice smile. Of all the countries that play cricket only three really understand it. All three have […]

Second Anniversary

WordPress informs me that today marks the birthday of LeggieLefty as a blog. Wow, I had no idea this was coming up. Frankly, I’ve neglected this blog a bit. Luckily, no one has missed it, so there’s really no harm done. 🙂 The news from the UAE is that England […]

India in SriLanka 2015

Oh, England!

What an entertaining past few months we’ve seen in England! I’d love to have been a fly on the wall, a fly capable of listening to and understanding the doublespeak and management gobbledygook
