Latest from New Road - play delayed until 2008

With the umpires planning an inspection some time in the spring, hopefully...

Yes, sad to say New Road, the first county ground I ever saw a cricket match at (Worcestershire vs Pakistan XI, which included Imran Khan) and one of the most attractive grounds in the country is covered with a thick layer of mud after the flooding, and so is unplayable for the rest of the season.

Fairly inevitable I suppose, but somewhat depressing nonetheless. Although this is the first time Worcestershire have been flooded during the season in my lifetime, I fear I won't be an old man before it happens again.
