I was searching the net for some proper pictures of people like Nathan Hauritz and Albie Morkel for my next post when I landed at a blog called Amy S. Talks Cricket. And the first post I read there started thus:
“My name is Kate. I was one of Amy’s closest friends before she passed away in July in a car accident. She was 26.”
I had never been to this blog before and of all the 600 posts there (written over a 4 month period), this was the first I’d see. Wish I had been there earlier, for her posts are funny, interesting, serious, trivial, and reveal an impressive understanding of the game which very few have.
