It's been a quiet few weeks in cricket - everybody says so. Even Andy Bull says so, and he is the author of the Guardian's weekly cricket email, The Spin. This week he resorted to cricketers who smoke, and a charity appeal. Last week, it was a history of cricket in Samoa.
Over on the BBC, things aren't looking much better. As I write, the headline at www.bbc.co.uk/cricket is 'Donald interested in England role'. 'Irish lose by four runs to Canada' and 'Scots beat Uganda after shoot-out' also get a prominent place on the front page.
I love it. Apart from the fact I'm quite interested in the history of cricket in Samoa, it really heightens the anticipation for the next big event. You can have too much of a good thing. A lot has been made of player burn-out, but just as important is fan fatigue.
