when cricket comes up trumps

If you ever needed some motivation to get yourself sorted on  a Monday morning then take a look at this picture!.

this man, this time last year was playing cricket and looking forward to the season, and then  in July he had the rug pulled out from under his feet as he was diagnosed with cancer.

Fast forward to yesterday, and he is back with the team and scored a century!!!
Fighter, trooper and all round lovely man.

I for one cannot wait to see him at Headingley this weekend.

Its good to see Carbs back.

However the opening of the season was not great for all as Haseeb Hammed, who mid season last year was being dubbed the new wonder kid of England cricket.
Had to retire from the match yesterday with an injury to his hand. This comes after a finger injury forced him out of the England squad in India over the winter.

here's hoping he is on the mend soon.

And then there was Yorkshire.
They were taking on  Leeds/Bradford MCCU, who they bowled out for 137, with some impressive bowling from Ben Coad (2-17)
The youngsters are going to earn their pay early season with injuries to the bowlers.
Lyth will take to the field today on 61, and I for one will be keeping a close eye on the events.

I had a wonderful day with my friend Sarah as we headed off for a spot of retail therapy before heading home for a vegan lunch, something that I think she enjoyed.

And now I am off to work.
Be motivated this Monday.
