King Cricket this week

We’re in Portugal, but we’ve got stuff ready for the week ahead.

There’s a cricket bat in an unusual place, two match reports and an email that we quite liked and decided to turn into a post, even though it’s a bit dated now.

On a side note, we just edited both match reports and it was only when we were adding the title for the second one that we realised they were reports on the same match. There aren’t many websites that will take two reports on the same match and publish them several days apart, a month or so after said match has taken place.

We fill a niche. We fill a pointlessly duplicated uninformative match report niche.


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. Is it by any chance a match that was in any case abandoned, KC? If so, even better.

    Enjoy Portugal. Good cricketing country, potentially, by all accounts. Do we get a report on that aspect?

  2. KC – I’m going to Portugal to play golf in 10 days……any indication of current weather conditions & temperatures would be much appreciated

  3. According to Cricinfo – “Perched on the brink of a new era, cricket in Portugal looks forward to the future with confidence whilst remaining conscious of the long standing traditions.”

    Or, to paraphrase – “You want me to do what? Write about cricket in Portugal !!? How on earth do you expect me to do that? Do they even play cricket in Portugal? Alright, alright, I’ll do it already! Give me ten minutes.”

  4. You stupid king. Fancy planning your holiday for the champions trophy. Everyone’s known for ages that we’re probably going to win it.
