A short story about cricket

We’ve written an episodic short story about taking rational decisions based on empirical evidence. You’d think that every cricket writer would be jumping on that crowd-pleasing bandwagon, but weirdly they’re not. Short stories about sports administration are in worryingly short supply during this year’s festive period. It’s inexplicable.

Part one was published at Cricinfo today. If you hate it, make sure you read the next few instalments as well so that you can really compound that hatred. If you like it, make sure you read the next few instalments as well so that the novelty wears off and you learn to hate it.

  1. I look forward to seeing how this develops. It seems to me that the narrative has reached its logical conclusion.

    And before I forget, I wish you all a happy festivus.

    • Yes, Happy Christmas DC, KC and everyone else. And here is a festive thought for you all, to warm the cockles of your heart, or vice versa if you prefer:

      At this time last year, Day 1 of the MCG Ashes test had not yet happened. At this time last year, we did not know just how good life could get.
