We wrote about Graham Gooch’s exit as batting coach for Cricket365. Having referred to him as being a dead duck in that article, we have since found ourself absent-mindedly imagining a short story in which everyone’s favourite once-moustachioed, daddy-hundred-loving, former England opening batsman actually is a duck.
In the story, Goochy the Duck and his friend Gucci the Duck must unravel the mysteries of the dog thrower. However, they’re ducks and don’t have the capacity for rational thought. The end.
