There’s only one thing to do. And that’s draw attention to the name of an entirely different cricketer because it’s slightly amusing if you don’t pronounce it correctly.

Brace yourselves…

Bangladesh have a player called Anamul Haque. Anamul!

On top of this, they also have a player called Mominul Haque who just scored 181 against New Zealand. Mominul isn’t a funny name unless you first lay the groundwork. If you do that, it starts to sound a bit like a really pissed person trying to say ‘Anamul’.

Mominul Haque.

We think you’ll all agree, we’re covering this Tendulkar retirement thing better than anyone.


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. at last, someone prepared to treat the little master’s retirement properly

    i mean, all this tedious hagiography elsewhere… anyone would think tendulkar was something special {tt}

  2. I’ve just had an advert for iams cat food appear on here.

    Either my wife has been looking at animal rescue websites again, or we do actually talk about cats too much on here.

  3. So King you’re saying since every hack in cricket is talking about Tendulkar, you’ll tell us about the Haques? I thought you were going to avoid the topic.
