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.


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. No-one tells us anything. Actually, that’s not true. Sometimes people tell us we’re in the way.

  1. Now that you have changed the way people think, the logical next step is to grow a mustache. And twirl it in a moody fashion while pondering inane questions.
    “Sir, would you like your eggs scrambled or poached?” “hmmm…”
    “Please Sir, can I have an answer?”
    “hmmmm, How about……both? Yes, lad, I’d like my eggs………..scratched”.

  2. It has great information, i want to know about Don Bradman. I learn a lot about this great player the he was the legend and icon of cricketers.
