A cricket bat in an ordinary place – twice

We’re getting closer, but we’re still not quite there. Send pictures of bats (or whatever) in unusual places to king@kingcricket.co.uk

Joe says:

“Here’s a picture of my cricket bat. It isn’t really in an unusual place – my hallway. It is, however, in two places at once, which I think is pretty unusual for a cricket bat.”

A less than perfect piece of willow

We asked if there was a story of EXTRAORDINARY RAGE behind its unusual appearance.

“Sadly, no. Just a rather limp medium pacer, a solid back foot push and the strange flapping sound of a previously sturdy bit of wood being held together only by two bits of bat tape. Then came a long bout of sulking.

“Rage did bubble up briefly when my wife saw it, burst out laughing and said: ‘Did you do a Ronnie O’Sullivan?’

“I calmed down hours later when I chose to believe her story that she’d deliberately confused cricket and snooker. A bit of me still isn’t sure though.”

5 Appeals

  1. The bat I used in The Rose and Crown incident ended up like that. Except with more blood on it.

  2. Dreadful cheap tat those General Motors bats.

  3. No wonder they need bailout money

  4. I was sort of hoping you broke it on your wife

  5. Is it better that she chose to confuse the two rather than she was just confused?
