Sajid Mahmood batting at five?

Sajid Mahmood will tell his kids he once batted at number five - they won't believe himYes, it did happen and he wasn’t a nightwatchman because it was a Twenty20 match – the quarter-final against Essex.

It makes a kind of sense. Sajid Mahmood’s been batting surprisingly well for Lancashire this season, hitting four fifties in his 10 first-class innings and scoring at quite a lick. He made 34 off 17 balls.

It’s still as weird as our work colleague who says things like: “You know that shop that’s an H and then an ‘and’ and then an M?” though.

  1. Mahmood batting at five’s nothing, two wickets down Lanky had a 62 year old former australian test bastsman filling in.

    Surely an award for the oldest player im the T20?

    And yes it’s definately spelt australian, not Australian.

  2. It’s been coming for a while that. Was pleased to see him do well.

  3. His motivation for scoring crazy runs in the first innings is that he knows there’s a pretty good chance he’ll bowl like a twat.

  4. The King works!?

    Don’t you have minions to do that for you?

  5. Seconded Dan. I though being a celebrity cricket blogger was a full time, highly lucrative occupation.

    Oxymoronic and wrong.

  7. Are your colleagues aware of your secret identity? You’re like the Clarke Kent of blogging.

    Most people have heard of Superman. If they are aware of our secret identity, it doesn’t mean a thing.

    It’s like saying: “Ha haaa! I am also the person who delivered a newspaper to your house many years ago before you actually bought it. You didn’t expect that, did you?”

  9. I’m not going to lie KC, I don’t understand what you’re trying to say there.

    Nevermind.
