If you’ve got a picture of an animal being conspicuously indifferent to cricket, please send it to king@kingcricket.co.uk.

Ged and I went to a supper and talk at Lord’s about the book Being Geoffrey Boycott. Ged has written up the evening.

On arrival, when we first looked out of the window, we saw a fox on that resplendent Lord’s pitch. A magnificent fox, it was. You get a very high class of fox in St John’s Wood.

Ged said that the fox looked indifferent to cricket and that we needed a photograph for King Cricket. But by the time I got my camera/phone out, the fox had wandered off.

This, as depicted in the above picture, might be the first known example of an animal displaying indifference to the idea of displaying indifference towards cricket.

Ged, being a bit of a geek, thought we should nevertheless have a picture of a fox on a cricket pitch for King Cricket readers to see. So Ged collaborated with Dall-E and produced the following picture.

It looks more like a fox stealing a run than an indifferent fox, but still.


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. Thanks.

      The Scientician is currently working at the Natural History Museum and sending us a photo of a different taxidermied bird each day.

    1. Ah, but you get a better class of fox in NW8.

      I must say that the fox Daisy & I spotted…and indeed the Dall-E impression of that fox, looks a lot more animated than the Clitheroe stuffed thing in that worst picture of all time, “kindly” brought back to mind by Bert’s link.
