Buy The Cricketer. We’ve a thing in it.
“Was Don Bradman really the greatest batsman? Is Test cricket the pinnacle? Was it definitely better in your day? It’s time to bust some myths, says Alex Bowden.”
Only we didn’t say that. That’s not the kind of thing we say. We just tried it out now and it sounded very odd – a bit confrontational almost.
What we actually said was something about maybe, possibly writing something about various bits of received wisdom and if it wouldn’t be too much trouble, would The Cricketer please take a quick look, but that it would be absolutely fine if they didn’t want to use it and we wouldn’t be at all offended.
Oddly, some of the comments on our recent Cricinfo piece appeared to quote our Cricketer piece. We can’t work out whether this is coincidence or whether we have CHANGED THE WAY PEOPLE THINK. It’s probably the former.
