There is a 5 day cricket match going on at the moment in New Zealand - NZ v India (who are the best team in the world). It is riveting because the NZ captain is just 19 runs away from a record triple test century, hopefully saving the match and winning the test series which looked an unsurmountable challenge two days ago.

It is very interesting to see how these top sportsmen approach such a challenge - they talk about 'being in the zone' 'in the now or the present' 'each ball at a time, each hour at a time' 'determination and single mindedness'

So many parallels with our Overcoming MS journey even if you don't like cricket ;-)

Perhaps not a good analogy for us Brits at the moment!
Love it Wendy! We're a big cricket family and that's brilliant: build a big score , one ball at a time. And I like the: 'single mindedness ' hear it for the first time recently in a Dalai Lama speech and I keep noticing it now.

I think it works for English cricket too:

Make bad decision: suffer the consequences!

And I'm a big fan of English Cricket so no offence intended ;)
