Daily Diary (DD) - Day 150 of 2019


I don't normally predict the winners of sporting tournaments - at least not publicly - but on this occasion of the Cricket World Cup, I declared yesterday that England should finally be able to achieve this milestone. 

They have started off explosively enough today, by beating South Africa with more than a 100 runs and 10 overs to spare:

England 311 for 8 (Stokes 89, Morgan 57, Roy 54, Root 51, Ngidi 3-66) beat South Africa 207 (de Kock 68, van der Dussen 50, Archer 3-27) by 104 runs


We have a few robust reasons for supporting England more than any other country in the 10 member competition.

Two of our citizens are represented for a start:

Moeen Ali and Adil Rashid.


We must not forget this brutal aspect of the conflict:

Any conflict resolution mechanism will have to address these injustices at the earliest.

Daily Diary (DD) - Day 154 of 2020

1145hrs: Today is better than yesterday. One can and should measure their productivity relatively, from one day to the next I think.
