I was making my way down to Cannon Street station, when I suddenly heard a roar. Rounding the corner, I saw that the street was packed, and that everyone was facing the same way. A bar called Deacon’s had mounted screens in the windows, and they were showing the latest test match in the Ashes series. We’d been doing pretty well, or so it appeared, and the English public have become rather fond of winners after the Rugby World Cup success last year. And so, commuters broke their journey home to stand in the street and watch cricket.
Pity the result wasn’t great, though.
