Relaxation time short lived

Chris Taylor | 6:12am gmt 30 Oct 2008
Andrew Gale / Chris Taylor ColumnOctober tends to be the month when cricketers get some time off from cricket and can relax. It is also the time many go away on holiday and forget about the exhausting season. I managed to get away with my Wife to Cyprus for a week. Unfortunately for myself and Andy the relaxation time is short lived as we have our own coaching business which kicked off for the winter on the 16th October. I guess you could say myself and Andy have cricket in our blood!
