I know, I can hear some of you groaning on receiving an email from us that might be considered a bit patronising, but we do have a duty of care as a cricket club to try and ensure everyone stays well, and as we all know players will experience extreme heat tomorrow.
Just follow the basics:
- Stay in the shade when you can
- Some sort of hat might be in order
- Drink lots of water (what you choose to drink later in the day is up to you)
- Wear some sun cream (Baz Luhrmann is particularly wise on this - look it up kids)
The league has given special dispensation over start times and intervals tomorrow, so keep an eye out for messages from your skipper, too.
Have a great day, keep an eye out for one another, and one day I might tell you about the time I batted for two days under scorching heat in Barbados…… (OK a tiny bit of editorial licence there)
