England v Pakistan – Day 3 – Headingley

Pakistan v South Africa

Logistics were interesting again to get to this match at Edgbaston, I had a dinner for the Chris Gayle Foundation to go to in London the night before and a game at the Oval the day after.  With this in mind I booked an Airbnb near Euston and a Virgin Train to Birmingham and back for the day. Getting to […]
