Thoughts of John Arlott, commentating in his inimitable articulate, leisurely, confiding countryman's burr,
"And as the sun sets over the gasometer, we come to the end of another exciting days play here at Lords..."

Who said, "'Owzatt!"?

A particularly silly mid off kind of batsman.

Somedays you feel as if you have had the stuffing knock out you. Great capture.

Reminds me of my favourite Brian Johnston quote, 'The bowler's Holding, the batsman's Willey'...
Thanks everyone, and thanks to Dave for the UA.

One careless drop of a cigarette and they could be playing for the ashes.

The ECB may well pick him for the next Test...

Great capture, good to see he's socially distancing.

He looks quite real on viewing the thumbnail. A great find for Silly Sunday, Moira! 😁👍

I remember being roped into a local cricket match when I was about 20. This could well be me: the first ball made me think 'this is a dangerous place to stand' - fortunately, the second ball took the middle stump out nice and cleanly.

He looks good enough to be playing for England in the test! Hopefully, does not get all the stuffing knocked out of him!!
