Duanne Olivier (via Sky Sports)

Test batting average of 3.71. Highest score of 10 not out. We can’t imagine Duanne Olivier will be far off selection as a top order batsmen when he finally becomes available.

We lamented the loss of a promising international cricketer when Olivier announced he was taking up a Kolpak deal with Yorkshire last month. We had no idea that we were completely wrong and that he might one day return to international cricket in slightly different clothes.

Never mind playing for England though. Why can’t we have a Kolpak Test team?


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. Apropos the stumps in a Salford toilet piece yesterday, that whole event triggered a recovered memory from my childhood of another similar device-like thingy.

    If you are interested, please clcik through:


    If not…don’t.

    Love the idea of “Sir Laurence” opening the batting for England btw. That’s Olivier, I mean of course, not Elderbook. Mind you…

  2. Having a hard time keeping down my inner McGoohan having read that ashes kit will have names and numbers stamped on the back.
