What a crock of shi*e. :mad:

I would like to punch Boris reasonably hard.
Exactly. You can play basketball, but not cricket. It's a joke.

350 kids at my club chomping at the bit to play. Come 4th July, they can buy a coke and a packet of crips from the bar but they cant play. Feckin dire

Wipe the ball at the end of each over and get on with it.

You Somerset fanatics may like to have a go at this.


Modesty forbids me to mention that I got 14 out of 15.
Which one did you miss out on Houndster ?

I shall 'fess up to only 7. :cry:
Wow, I got eight. Was always going to struggle with the older ones although I got the obvious one of those and one other although there turned out only to be one name I had never heard of. Disturbing blank in the 2003-12 though that has me kicking myself, especially seeing one was a favourite 😢. Also wasted 20 seconds repeatedly entering a name that I couldn't believe was wrong!

The first name that came into my head was Brian Close, and I must have wasted more time than that trying to convince the mulish SCCC website that he was right. When the penny finally dropped, I pulled the plug and started again. That wasn't cheating................was it? :unsure:

Mine was a more up to date player who didn't play test cricket until after he had moved.

I only got 6, but don't support Somerset
Some school boy omissions though.

Obviously a similar quiz involving Surrey would gave stretched to about 50 :LOL:
Well known fact that England selectors have tended to watch cricket only at Lord's and, occasionally, the Oval! :)
