You see what happens? You see what happens? This is what happens. This is what happens when you goad Tlaloc, the Aztec rain god who loves Test cricket.
Tlaloc has really been looking forward to the series between New Zealand and England, but then he found out about the schedule and flipped out.
“Four days between Tests?” said Tlaloc. “We’ll see about that.”
He’d been planning on holding out just a few more days before ending the drought that has bedevilled North Island but when he found out that the gap between the second and third Tests was again just four days, the same as between the first and second Tests, he moved things forwards.
Tlaloc likes to have time to dissect one Test match and then some more time to anticipate the next.
