Cricket affiliates in Oval schmooze-up

Diary headed to The Oval to watch Surrey thrash Middlesex in the Twenty20 cup last Friday evening.

Over dinner we couldn't help but spot that our host, nPower brand PR manager Tim Percival, had invited his former employer, Pitch PR, along.

Given that Pitch is promoting Mitre's new Shane Warne-branded cricket range SKW23, was Percival angling for a free return ticket to this winter's Ashes series Down Under?

Pitch creative director Andrew Ager would not be drawn on whether the big schmooze would have any effect. But with the venue about to host Test and one-day games against Pakistan, hats off to Percival for putting in the groundwork.
