The lawns were pretty quick today, and the hoops on the cricket pitch at Hurlingham very unforgiving, and there were no more sextuples. However, the forecast for London for the read of the week and weekend is for rain and showers, so the lawns may be slower for the later stages.

Weather from uk.weather.yahoo.com (in deg C):
Thur: 19-25, rain
Fri-Sun: 16-24, showers

Schedule for tomorrow:
