Cricinfo article about Lord’s

We did another piece for Cricinfo. It’s about how they could improve the Lord’s atmosphere for Twenty20 matches.

It’s okay – possibly even a 7/10 – but the important part is that we’ve managed to squeeze a reference to wacky waving inflatable arm-flailing tube men into an article on a grown-up website.

We’re running out of ambitions to fulfil after this and… well, just this really.


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’m with KC in “The Final Countdown” department.

    Actually, though, with all the loud music and razzamatazz that has been going on before the start of each game, the sound of the five minute bell has been as hilarious as it has been superfluous. It simply has to stay.

    Also, KC, at the risk of losing the point in detail, The Tavern Stand has actually been a public stand for the World T20. Only the Warner Stand has the “members friends” contingent for this tourny.

    One of my friends took brought some thunder sticks in for the Friday matches last week and I swear he was the only person with those in the whole of the Upper Warner!

    Good article though, KC. The world is a better place for its existence.

  2. Great idea Jill. I imagine KC attempting to preserve anonymity by wearing a huge papier mache head like Frank Sidebottom, but with a crown on.

    KC has also attempted to preserve his anonymity by persevering with this ridiculous ‘Alex Bowden’ charade.

  3. Bacon and egg giant foam hands! Genius!

    I’ve always maintained that one cannot *really* show ones appreciation of a fine sporting contest without the aid of a giant foam hand.

  4. Final Countdown aside, “sartorial handbrake to raucousness” is a superb phrase.
