I went with me Dad to Derby to watch Derbyshire versus Essex in the Sunday League. It was a rain affected game reduced to 30 overs per side (instead of 40) in which Essex hammered the hosts, winning by 8 wickets. I think that I remember Graham Gooch hitting one ball so far out of the ground that cars were at risk in the car park – in the event he made an unbeaten 51.
Remember, I was supposed to be revising, but hey what the heck!?
In the evening, I watched France defeat Canada in Group C by a single goal – I think that it was scored by Jean-Pierre Papin. I therefore had a late night, before the start if my O Levels proper. Tomorrow would be Geography paper I.
