ABSOLUTELY ridiculous. You buy a property next to cricket pitch, then complain about balls coming over into your garden.

It’s like buying a property near an airport then complaining about noise from aircraft and also flying from that airport to go on holiday.

We had a cricket pitch for many years in Dean Park Road but it was sold and cricket is no longer played there.

When my grandsons were playing there once or twice I got talking to a lovely chap who had talked his wife into buying a flat overlooking that pitch so he could watch the cricket.

But alas, no cricket to watch now.

Live and let live. Cricket is a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing game to watch.

Would they rather a football ground with supporters shouting and singing?
