King Cricket email news

A sizeable proportion of you are signed up for our emails. We’ve good news and bad news about that.

The bad news is that the email sending service we’ve always used – which has generally worked pretty well – ends in July, so we’re having to switch to another one. We’re actually going to do that now so that when it inevitably goes wrong, we’ve still got time to explore other options.

The good news is that our email will hopefully improve – both visually and in terms of giving you a little more flexibility in terms of how you follow the site.

After today’s email, we’re going to switch all our existing subscribers over to the new service. We’ll also be adding a weekly email option (the King Cricket Weekly Wrap) if you feel like we hassle you too much and you’d rather receive a round-up once a week.

If you’re already a subscriber, you don’t need to do a thing. You will (hopefully) receive the new daily email by default and if you want to switch to the weekly option, you can do that by clicking a ‘manage your subscription’ link that appears at the bottom of each email.

If you don’t currently get our email and you’d like to sign up for one or the other, you can do so below. (There’s a bit more info about how we won’t share your details etc on our email sign-up page.)

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. There should be a third option, KC:

    …with the banner button, “Please irritate the living bejesus out of me in late December annually”

    Seriously, good luck with your new supplier and your new style of e-mail service. I know this stuff is no fun to implement and a lot of work.

  2. Today I received my first ever king cricket mailing, despite being subscribed to the list for (however many it’s been) years.

    I recall at several points attempting to re-add my address to the list, each time to be curtly reminded that I was already subscribed. Never once received an email, but I was never bothered enough to post a complaint about it. I suspected that this changeover might result in the onset of normal service—that appears to be the case.

    1. Huzzah. Although we suppose there may well be greater numbers who have had the reverse experience who we’ll never hear from again.

  3. Oh King, what is the connection between this post and the mechanics of a cross seam delivery?
