Remember travelling? Going from one place to another place?

Ged writes:

“Here is a cricket book in an unusual place – a Japanese Shinkansen Bullet Train to Kyoto.

“Ironically, given that Cricket **** Cricket is about the 1986/87 Ashes tour of Australia, Daisy and I found ourselves alone in a carriage with an enormous group of mostly enormous young Aussies.”

Ged “embargoed” this piece.

Until November 8.


Ged said at the time (October 2018) that imposing an embargo on a submission to King Cricket was perhaps an unnecessary thing to do.

We’ve no idea what he was talking about.

(Semi-related to this, our email (genuinely) wasn’t working for a bit (about three months). We’ve now got all the messages sent during that period and we *think* we’ve worked our way through them all.)

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. That guy in the background looking on admiringly is clearly a fan. (Of Ged that is, not the book).

      1. I glad you asked that question, KC. Here is a more recent image of the very bookmark (a little travel weary now), but who wouldn’t covet such a thing:


        The book being promoted by the bookmark, Clean Business Cuisine, an antidote to management books, is readily available on Kindle and is an ideal humorous read for people who wish to self-isolate not only from disease but also seek immunity from all of those ghastly business videos doing the rounds.

        I myself received more than a dozen-and-a-half company videos today…in short, Co-vid-19. (The jokes in the book are better).

  2. Ged is clearly following the same protocol the cabinet office do and following the 30 year rule before declassifying highly sensitive documents.
