three of a kind Little boy blue

Like all former England cricket captains, David Gower must have been through some very peculiar experiences. His weirdest of all though, he confesses, is not watching someone in a baggy green cap catch the ball from one of his airy wandings of the Gower bat outside the off-stump (that, after all, happened rather a lot), or leading England to victory in an Ashes series, which is somewhat rarer. No, the weirdest thing has been lunch in the new Lord's Media Centre. Why? Neither the food nor the architecture, more the ambience. 'Everything is blue,' he confides. This includes the tasteful addition in the bar of a large Pepsi drinks cabinet.
