The fourteenth of April, 2011: I’ve smashed open a hornet’s nest here

The cricket season’s back, hooray. So here’s a visual celebration of hostility, physical intimidation, foul language and confrontational macho posturing.

It all kicks off about 41 seconds in. Squinty-eyed ocker resilience at its best. Makes me want to cheer.

The clip, incidentally, is from Empire of Cricket, Robert Murphy and Alastair Lawrence’s superb documentary series for the BBC. Everybody ought to watch it.
