Lest you think I'm making this stuff up, the year of the novelís inciting incident (the 19th of March in 1753), to borrow a phrase from the screenwriting world, is directly adjacent to the year of the Julian/Gregorian calendar switch (1752).

One time period away as a question of poetic discretion, and two in the case of the space between the 8th of March and the 6th.

Wonder if there is any significance to the fact that Annie Chapman died on the morning of the very first day of league football.

Maybe the Ripper was a cricket fan.

Well done to Ross Taylor for the record 181 overnight.

Ross to make tonight? For his injury, that was a non-negotiably honourable innings and an imprecise peer to Carlos Brathwaite having the wit to make the wholly canniest of investments in four consecutive sixes at the start of the final over of the 2016 T20 World Cup Final.

Extending the script of a sportsman at large, Polly Nichols (the victim before Ani), ed on 31 August 1888, six years to the exact day from this famous notice in Cricket: A Weekly Record of The Game:

SACRED TO THE MEMORY
OF
ENGLAND'S SUPREMACY IN THE
CRICKET-FIELD
WHICH EXPIRED
ON THE NINETEEN TH DAY OF AUGUST, AT THE OVAL
"ITS END WAS PEATE"

Englandís fifth and final Match-Up with Ross and Tim Southee for the prize of neither sacred cow nor golden calf nor red heifer unfolds tonight in Christchurch, with anthems the stuff of dreams ringing from slip through third man heralding the start of play in H a gley.
