Listen to the tin!

Unsure how to approach opening the bowling in the Ashes?

Simply consult ‘the tin’.

“Jimmy does what it says on the tin – he swings it both ways at pace with the new ball.” – Peter Moores

The tin is clearly very wise.


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. News KC – I posted an Ashes feature on cricketweb, someone commented “It sounds like you’ve just tried to be funny for no reason”. How do I respond to this criticism?

  2. Crying until our throat hurts is our normal approach.

    30-35 minutes of racking sobs now should put you in a position where you can successfully buy milk in the morning without anyone seeing visible signs of distress.

  3. Top Venning, Howe_zat.

    Surely the date on the tin is important too.

    Jimmy does what it says on the tin and is way within his best before date.

    Ponting also does what it says on the tin, but must at least be past his best before date. And very close to his expiration date.
