Thursday 21 August 1986

Two mentions of the word ‘boring’, one mention of the word ‘exciting’ and the words ‘Botham’ and ‘comeback’ in the same sentence. Yes after a 60 day ban for cannabis use – admitted during a newspaper interview, Beefy was back to face New Zealand at The Oval in the third test of a three match series. Botham’s performance – 3 for 75 in the Kiwi’s first innings followed by an unbeaten 59 in England’s first innings were in vain as the weather won the day with the match ending in a draw. New Zealand won the series by virtue of their win in the second test.

Oh yeah, and I posted out some letters to shops in town asking for a Saturday job. Don’t suppose that I would have sent more than 10 though, me being me.
