Next up is Cricket:
I won't be mentioning any names here but one of the highlights of covering cricket is when it rained. Endless hours of waiting for play to start could result in a game of cards or eye spy. But when you have a 'gaggle' of sports photographers it is usually 'how many jaffa cakes can you fit in your mouth' (the record was 12) or how many rotations could be be completed on an office chair with one push (not sure of the record, but I do remember nearly bringing up my roasted quail at Lord's during a test match v Sri Lanka).
But when this fine country does eventually adorn us with sun rays there is not a better job in the world than sitting back in a lazy boy fold down chair, leaning forward every three and half minutes and listening to leather on willow.
