….Shepherd’s Warning as the old country saying goes.

Further bad portents for England? Or more rain of the like we saw on Wednesday?

Most of the five thousand or so that swelled the grass banks of the pretty Dunedin University Oval yesterday will be happy with another warm late-summer day. And lots more runs.

England will take the rain.
