Ged Ladd was watching UK Health Secretary, Matt Hancock, being interviewed by Sophy Ridge On Sunday.
“Just to the north-east of the cabinet minister’s ear, I can clearly see a cricket ball,” he said.
This is not perhaps the most unlikely location for a cricket ball as Hancock’s affection for cricket is fairly common knowledge.
In 2005, he went on an expedition to the North Pole during which he played a game.
We’re not sure which one of those people is Hancock.
He later explained: “I played the most northerly game of cricket out on the Arctic ice and to prepare for that – instead of dragging all the food you need, because we took everything and pulled everything behind us in a pulk – I ate enormous amounts of food and I put on three stone. I ate five meals a day and one of those meals was entirely flapjack.”
Since then, we’ve had a pretty excruciating game of office cricket for the 2019 World Cup…
“24, 25, 26… 26 of the Queen’s runs.”
