The telly just ran a nicely timed package about Usman Khawaja’s twin tons at this ground a year ago. “I think people could relate to what I’ve been through,” he said, paraphrased, about being dropped and coming back so many times. “Getting a hundred and then walking off the ground with the whole crowd chanting my name, that’s something that I never thought would ever happen to me. It’s the most special moment of my cricket career.”
A light sprinkling at the ground, but who knows what will come after this.
