Huzzah! I’m in! I’ve been successful in the draw. The last time I was successful in a draw was in 1988, when at a Lord’s test match, I won a cricket bat autographed by the great West Indian side of that era. By a strange twist of fate, I will be missing the first West Indies test match at Lord’s (17th-21st May) in 2012. Sacrifices have to be made, even when they are this painful. I hope MCC will forgive me.
