|Domestic team information|
Down the mine I dreamed of cricket; I bowled imaginery balls in the dark; I sent the stumps spinning and heard them rattling in the tunnels. No mishap was going to stop me from bowling in the real game, especially this one.
I must have made a good impression because a club official to us into his office and asked me if I would sign on for a year with a view to becoming a professional.
