An influence on Lancashire’s batting

We’ve made an unbelievable discovery. The F5 key on our keyboard is a shortcut that leads to the fall of a Lancashire wicket.

Go and look at the scorecard for their current match and give it a go yourselves. See if you too have the power.

We have honestly just done it four times in a row.


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. I tried, but Lancs were all out by the time I found the score.

    It doesn’t work for Kent – the ‘Rob’ Key supercedes the ‘F5’ Key every time.

  2. Every time I press mine another investment bank goes bust.

    “But Matt, the banks are a integral part of our economy, with repercussions that will be felt for years and will affect normal citizens”

    Don’t care F5,F5,F5,F5

  3. With Notts it’s not the F5 key, it’s the Large Hadron Collider.
    Since it’s been switched on, Notts have been pants.
    The weather has been better though.

  4. Clearly it’s a sign of your growing influence, as evidenced by Cricinfo including your question about a comedy English accent in their Kevin Pietersen article.

  5. It works differently for Middlesex in my experience. While I’m sat in front of my screen, everything usually seems hunky-dory. F5 or no F5. But if I then go out to a meeting or (heaven forbid) decide to go to Lord’s and have a look in person, wickets tumble.

    Perhaps some other idiot takes over my F5 key, in which case it must be the F5er rather than the F5 key itself that is the cause.

    I think I should go lie down now.

  6. Ah, KC – you underestimated Kent’s capacity for being shite and our willingness to provide the opposition with an “Extra” man.

    Am off to stick my head in an oven.
