Oh Twenty20 finals day, the most glorious, high-octane, nutty day of cricket in entire, long, boring, too-much-cricket county season. It’s so crazy, someone wise once told The Leading Edge that every single ball, every single ball, either goes for a six, or sees the batsman clean bowled. Not only that, not only that, but this wondrous exhibition of bludgeoning batting and tumbling stumps is wonderfully supplemented by the absolutely insane mouth-watering possibility of a mascot-race and a documentary about Kerry Packer and WSC (which is a repeat). I can barely contain the excitement.
Clearly, this is worth not only sitting on the sofa all day, but also missing the beginning of the football season. Crikes. To see if this meets expectations, The Leading Edge will deliver a magnificent text-based highlights package, all equipped with an ‘excitement rating’. Yes!
