England Go Bananas

leave a comment »

The volcanic disruption is ending and the planes are taking to the skies again. Which is a disappointment to all of us who were enjoying the romantic prospect of the England cricket team setting off in a ship for the World Twenty20 tournament in the Caribbean.

I did some research into the last time the team set sail on a cricket tour, and it was also to the Caribbean in the fifties. I was surprised to learn that it was via a banana boat.

Unfortunately as I read further it was made clear that this was a boat carrying bananas. And not an inflatable craft normally straddled by sunburnt English holidaymakers in Magaluf.

Which would be ridiculous.
